Zelda: Majora's Mask HD Fan Art Project Looks Really Impressive

Fans have recreated parts of Majora's Mask in the hopes of convincing Nintendo to create an official remake.

While Nintendo continues to work on its first original high-definition Zelda game, two fans are recreating parts of a classic Zelda game, the Nintendo 64's Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, in an effort to make them look better than ever. A new video update (above) on the Zelda Majora's Mask Project was published yesterday through its YouTube channel. It shows off a variety of gorgeous 3D environments and models, including one of Deku Link.

To be clear, this is not a playable remake of Majora's Mask. "This work has been created by fans for fans, but its ultimate purpose is to be presented to Nintendo," the video's description states. Creators Pablo Belmonte and Paco Martinez--no doubt in the hopes of ensuring Nintendo doesn't shut them down--say this is an interactive project that hasn't used any materials from the original game, adding that they are not profiting from it in any way.

A video from the duo that looked like a trailer for a remake was first released two years ago (see it below), showing a beautiful-looking segment from early on in Majora's Mask. That video was accompanied by a description that described the project as a "small test" intended to serve as "a proposal" to convince Nintendo to make it a reality.

Updates on the project have been hard to come by since then; no additional videos were posted until one appeared last month showing Belmonte and Martinez, who say they work in the industry, with a Happy Mask Salesman statue.

The latest video describes the project as a work-in-progress, but offers up no additional information about when we'll see it again. We've contacted the creators to learn more and will report back with anything we learn.

Majora's Mask is one of two Zelda games released for the N64, the other being Ocarina of Time. That game received a 3DS remake in 2012, and Nintendo has hinted that a Majora's Mask remake could follow at some point. An HD remake of another Zelda game, Wind Waker, was released on Wii U last year. Presently, the company is known to be working on a new, open-world Zelda game for Wii U.

Would you like to see a 3DS remake of Majora's Mask similar to The Ocarina of Time 3D, or would you prefer that Nintendo make a full HD remake of the game resembling what's seen in these videos? Let us know in the comments.

HD is the only way to go for a remake. I highly appreciate the high valued production above.

If only a zelda game could be that detailed... I have my doubts that even the new one on WiiU will impress me to the level I want.

This is what we need, not stupid "better" HD remakes of a game only a year old.

Personally, I would love to see a Majora's Mask remake on the Nintendo 3DS. I love playing Zelda games and in my opinion, Zelda is at it's finest when it's on a handheld platform. Some of my most favorite and treasured moments with the Zelda franchise has been on the DS, DSi and 3DS. I'd also like to see new games in the Majoras Mask continuity on both the 3DS and WiiU.

I would rather have a Wii U remake of Majora's Mask but I would take a 3DS remake...


I can just see myself getting the Zora's mask and spending hours swimming in the ocean and jumping out of the water again. LoL Only this time in HD.

A full remake for the Wii U ofcourse, just like they should with OoT!

Stoneage... how long this is been up? Two years? Three?

Nevertheless I really love MM. The whole atmosphere is unusual dark, gritty and sad with the moon coming closer every hour and everyone arranges differently in town.

I'm sure a HD remake of Majora's Mask is coming, Nintendo knows people want it. The interesting thing to know is if it would it be on the 3DS or Wii U.

It bothers me that this game is being so ignored.  It's really one of the best games ever made if not *the* best, and superior in almost every way even to Ocarina of Time.

Yawn. Waste of time. Majora's Mask is garbage compared to Ocarina of Time.

Video Published on Jun 5, 2012 LOL way to keep up GS.

Anyway, I'd re-buy ALL Zelda games with an HD update.

It must be a slow news day to make an article about a video that is nearly 2 years old.


Quality journalism.

Sorry, I had to go thumbs down that first one. Recording video of your monitor with your phone/tablet is inexcusable.

MM is one reason I would slap Zelda Producer if I had the chance.


We've been asking for it, we've been dreaming for it.  Medias talk about it, Nintendo even t-rolls us about it with easter eggs and cameos, and there was even operation moonfall.


And yet, the game is not out there.

If it's Majora, then I'd want it on 3DS. I would rather they did a full HD remake of Twilight Princess. Before someone says, that game is only one generation old, it's actually 2. It's a Gamecube game. The Wii version is just a port with the same graphics. It supports anamorphic widescreen though there's no reason the GC version couldn't have supported it also. They kept that exclusive as an upsell for the Wii version.

Majora's mask is the only zelda game that scares the crap out of me. Stupid ben.

as someone who owns most legend of zelda games (minus the DS games and four swords for the gamecube) I hope nintendo wastes no time making an HD version of majora's mask. I thought of majora's mask as an annoying version of ocarina of time with some really cool ideas that could not surpass the annoyance of the "time travel"/"daily schedule" mechanics., that is not to say it's the only bad zelda game, the adventure of link was also pretty awful, I just happen to have it in my zelda collector's edition for the gamecube and a link to the past though not bad is also highly overrated game IMO. the art style of the wind waker was also pretty ugly and the exploration (sailing aimlessly) was annoying but no where near as bad as the annoyance I felt with majora. lastly, I was also very annoyed with the motion mechanics in skyward sword but majora's wins in the annoyance as always.

@mdign Ocarina of Time is recycling compared to Majora's Mask garbage and Wind Waker compost.

@TheExxorcist It can render the cut scenes just fine, but for actual gameplay would be rough, they'll have to either downgrade or choose a new artstyle for the game but i would love textures a beautiful as those!

@bigruss51 Majora is a powerful mask that causes problems for people including Link.

@danusty For someone who owns most Zelda games, you don't actually seem to like Zelda much!

@danusty ..It was hardly annoying to me. The daily schedule isn't even that annoying. You just need to pay attention to the time. I honestly don't know how annoying it is. It's a worthy sequel to LoZ:OCC.

@danusty

It's really not that annoying. You are probably one of these people who didn't even give it a chance. Also, ALTTP is not overrated.

@jemoedr @lostn If they have infinite money and personel, they should totally do that. If not, then they'd have to choose one over the other. Most likely, if they do a remake it will on 3DS because that would be easiest and cheapest for them. They can reuse some assets from OOT 3D. I don't believe every game needs to be remade, and not onto every platform.


But I do very much want to see TP on Wii U, or even just ported with same graphics to 3DS.

danusty
danusty

@Lpclemo @danusty it's not that I don't like them, I obviously do, but there are things that annoy me in a lot of the games. some others are just over rated and majora's mask is plain and simply annoying. 

zelda games that I thoroughly enjoy are the legend of zelda, link's awakening, ages, seasons, minish cap, OoT, twilight princess and a link between worlds.

danusty

@deadeternityx no, I actually got to finish the game but it was the one zelda game where I needed to use nintendo's own strategy guide because I could not keep track of the daily schedules and having to re-do small portions of the game due to time traveling annoyed me
