I don't work for target but can anyone confirmed if you can make a fake tag?

You do know that retailers are full of random bums that are just like you and me right? The retail shop floor is a terrible source for rumours. You may as well link to a random blog.

Yeah, as much as I want this to be true, over half of my friend circle in college consisted of Target employees. They have fancy gadgets for making custom labels and such. Sadly, this is a fake. A.) It wouldn't be 45$ B.) They wouldn't have a legitimate label for a game until long after it's been announced and near ready for release.

While I'm calling fake on those particular images, I still think MM3D is coming because of three things.

  1. Takashi Tezuka saying he'd love to play Majora's Mask in 3D.
  2. Grezzo (the team behind OoT3D) posting job listings for a "Legend" game.
  3. Miyamoto stating that they have an unannounced Zelda game in the works for 3DS. (It's far too soon for it to be another original title, so a remake seems most likely)

If MM 3D doesn't happen I will eat my shit and spew it at Nintendo.

While I do believe a 3DS-make of Majora's Mask is in the works, I'd say this is fake. Someone likely inputted the item and made the label on purpose to stir up controversy.

Majora's Mask is the best game ever. Having it in portable form would be better than fucking sex.

because it's an old game with mildly improved graphics. I can understand if it was on Wii U with totally remade graphics and extra/remade content, but this?

I was surprised to see this game on the most wanted list that miyamoto asked what games people want to be made too, over all the new games they could make.

I also think MM is one of the most overrated games ever, but I still would rather have new games than a remake of my favorite game, let alone a mildly improved port.

Agreed. They want remakes more than they want sequels nowadays. It's sad

Fake for sure, but I hope it eventually turns true. Would love to play it on the 3DS.

He/she should have just recorded that and put it on YouTube for easy views.

Porting this game would dilute its standing in history, in my opinion. The game-play has aged poorly (as it largely consists of recycled OoT puzzles which, and I'm looking through the lens of truth here, weren't great to begin with. Time hasn't been kind). That's the immediate thing people would criticise and we wouldn't hear the end of it. I'm not a fan of HD remakes in general, but Majora's Mask deserves a complete remake on a Nintendo console because of how great the story and sub-stories are, not a port to a handheld with a new lick of paint. In my opinion this would tarnish its legacy in some ways. I wouldn't want Nintendo to use this as a means to pacify Operation Moonfall backers because Majora's Mask should be enjoyed by everyone and a remake could truly be a modern day classic. There are a glut of features they could add in the game like the 7 day cycle originally planned for Zelda Gaiden on the N64 DD, additional temples, a transformed over-world, a plethora of new enemies, all new characters inspired by those of the original game rather than being like-for-like (like-like? I made a pun! =P) clones apart from their clothes etc. I couldn't care less about the timeline, but I think they should definitely explore more of Majora's Mask themes in another game, whether that be a remake, a sequel or a spiritual successor.
