Today’s Super Smash Bros. development screenshot is interesting and while it doesn’t reveal a new fighter, it’s still just as earth-shattering. Skull Kid isn’t being added as a playable character, but he will be available as an assist trophy, wearing Majora’s Mask. Here’s the message developer Masahiro Sakurai posted on Miiverse with the above picture: Pic of the day. Here’s a new Assist Trophy–the Skull Kid! I repeat, it’s an Assist Trophy, not a new fighter. The characters announced on the website are the fighters! This is the icing on the cake for people who are behind Operation Moonfall, which is a campaign to get Majora’s Mask remade for Wii U or 3DS. We’ve seen plenty of hints in the 3DS release of A Link Between Worlds and now this reveal means Nintendo certainly has Majora’s Mask on the brain. local_offer majora's mask Nintendo Super Smash Bros Super Smash Bros Wii U wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when CP9Kaku YEAYA! Ony Such beauty :’3 Schultz38 He would have been cool as a playable character, but this is certainly a good alternative! If they did an HD version of MM on the WiiU I would buy it in a heartbeat. My favorite Zelda ever. Jan MM on the WiiU… MUST STOP SALIVATING… Magnus Eriksson That would be great. But they should add dungeons. And I kind of think it would need a bit more than just a repainting like Wind Waker was. It need some serious remodelling because of polygons. Virus6 They did really well with the OoT 3DS remake. They redid the character models and textures Magnus Eriksson 3DS got a much smaller screen. Also OoT had a more clever placement of models (like forests etc), that made a recolouring easier. Its quite easy to catch this point by looking at different texture maps applied to the two games. Edit: Wii U is dead now. Just watched VGX. Ridiculous. ScrewAttack It was pretty ridiculous. KNEW it’d be bloody DKTF. Hardly dead though, VGX on a whole was an abortion. Just means no easy sales increase where there could’ve been…..wasted opportunity… And! Destiny not out til next September! Zero point in going PS4/Xbone til then. Magnus Eriksson Im emotionally fucked up now because UIve got my hopes up and wanted it so bad for Nintendo. Its probabnly not dead, but its not good. We can agree on that? Dominicruz that wasn’t enough for OoT ScrewAttack I didn’t know about this for ages. When I see my bro for Christmas I’m stealing away his 3DS to check it out for myself. Squid I don’t know about the dungeons, the MM ones are really long. If anything has to be fixed they should make the three day mechanic less stressful. I felt full of adventure in OoT and I felt like I was running for my life in MM Sylux I have to agree with you. MM mask was good, and had huge dungeons and a huge world as well, but after redoing stone temple 6 times, and more to come because it was pretty annoying that time had to be set back every 3 days ingame, it actually got really annoying, working on my nerves in real life, in the end even piss me off badly because every time you resetted it you had to do everything again and again. Original and fun for 5-6 times, annoying and utermost irritating after 7-9 times. Sadly I could never push myself to collect every single mask and every single piece of heart Dominicruz that’s the fun part in MM DragonSilths For some maybe. For others like myself, that time limit is the reason its my least favorite Zelda game. ScrewAttack I too enjoyed the true(r) time cycle and limit. Nothing like impending doom to make you work hard and fast! The answer is obvious- give both HD remakes :p Then everyone’ll be happy! Sylux I respect everyones opinion about it, all I want is for others to respect different opinions, for me it got really annoying as doing every time the same dungeon and it didn’t get you anything extra just lots of annoyance, atleast that is how it felt for me,if I have to run for my life I prefer it far more in games like Metroid and Resident evil because of the time bombs. For me it also removed the charm of the game, if every time you resetted time and you didn’t have to do the same dungeon over and over again, only the ones you didn’t clear yet I would have loved MM so much more then I do now. But back to topic, it’s a nice addition to smash brothers, albeit I would liked it even more if he was playable, but fact t is he is an assist trophy and I’m happy with it. I do think that we will see MM mask again as a remake though, there are so much hints making it very VERY plausible, not only this assist trophy, but also words from Nintendo itself and hints in A Link between Worlds, when it does I would definitely play it again whether it’s on 3DS or WiiU (WiiU needs it more though) abe I suspect that’s the point, Akatosh The whole point was for the game to be more stressful. You actually felt like you were saving the world! … As opposed to all other Zelda games where you feel like you’re collecting bugs. greengecko007 From a story perspective, and initial gameplay experiences, the frantic time limit is cool. But as many people have pointed out, it does lose its charm and there were numerous times that I wished I could have just played throughout Termina, as opposed to running through it. Majora’s Mask have you played mm? its a huge game by any means if added more it ll be a sandbox Magnus Eriksson Of course I have DragonSilths Adding more dungeons and such to a game makes it no longer a remake. Magnus Eriksson Oh yes it is. Its not a restauration, but it can very well be a remake. DragonSilths Nope. Magnus Eriksson Oh, sorry. But you are wrong. Wiki: “A remake offers a newer interpretation of an older work, characterized by updated or changed assets. A remake typically maintains the same story, genre, and fundamental gameplay ideas of the original work. The intent of a remake is usually to take an older game that has become outdated and update it for a new platform and audience. Remakes almost always include new graphics and altered gameplay, but may also include expanded stories, often to conform to the conventions of contemporary games or later titles in the same series in order to make a game marketable to a new audience. For example, Sierra’s 1991 remake of Space Quest, the developers used the engine, point-and-click interface, and graphical style of Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and The Time Rippers, replacing the dated graphics and text parser interface of the original. However, elements that had not become dated, like the narrative, puzzles, and sets, were largely preserved.” DragonSilths Wikipedia? That’s not a credible source, I could add to it saying Remake means toasters. Mozellergodt As much as I would like to see it happen I doubt we will see this on the Wii U. It would be almost as much work as creating a new game from scratch, since they will need new textures and models for everything. ScrewAttack MOAR DUNGEONS!!!! Alexander Kleinwechter I rather have MM on 3DS, i love the 3D so much on the 3DS! Justagamer Not me ..I didn’t like MM. Akatosh You must have let the moon fall. Justagamer Nah never played it but seen the walkthru and it just not for me Akatosh Someone else playing a game does not equal you playing the game. Justagamer Nah just not a game i want Zorpix You’ve all seen this trailer, right…? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyazYYev7Nw Schultz38 YES. *drools* asdfg I must be the only person in the world who couldn’t care less about a MM remake. Zorpix I dont want one XD Josiah Parsons Me neither. that makes three of us. Justagamer Meh! companyoflosers this has been confirmed as a fake fanmade trailer for years now. the eerie bit of music in the beginning is from a movie called donnie darko. Zorpix I know it’s fake 😛 companyoflosers its funny how many people are fooled in the comment section of the original video XD Josiah Parsons I’m not going to click the link at the end because I know I’m going to get rickrolled. Sylux I think most have seen it, and it has also been confirmed this is indeed a fanmade trailer, nontheless, the one who made this, placed a lot of effort in this trailer, and I’m impressed on how it turned out. If only the next Zelda game would look like that, but I don’t think this gen can accomplish graphics like that, maybe PC can with 2500.- hardware in it but probably WiiU, PS4 and Xbox1 can’t do this yet. Still really well made and when I first saw it I even believed and hoped it to be real sadly it was confirmed to be a Fan made video. Zorpix Oh I know it’s fake 😛 Sylux I assumes you did yes, most people do, but it remains a real fact for a change that this guy/girl did an incredible job 🙂 Zorpix Amazing job… So impressed jjbredesen Well it says om VGX’s website that they are showing a new look for a game…. In other words a remake! CEObrainz Don’t get your hopes up for a remake, it may be something else instead. But a remake of MM for 3DS would be amazing. Waluigi … Norfair20X5 Waluigi, why did you steal Tingles’ clothes? Do you want to be a fairy too? Waluigi But a cool fairy like Navi from Ocarina Of Time WolfgangAmadeusMozart http://i.imgur.com/pYvnqaC.jpg Waluigi Nice NintenScience Waluigi is back! Waluigi Finally! DragonSilths It’ll be Majora’s Mask 3D for the remake. I don’t want it though. Marjora’s Mask is my most HATED Zelda game. asdfg While I don’t hate it, I don’t get all this obsession with it. “Aahhhh it’s so dark and symbolic!1 OMG feelz” Funny thing is that before OoT3D no one cared about MM. ScrewAttack I cared 🙁 Schultz38 Majora’s Mask has always been my favorite Zelda. Since it’s release. I liked it more than OoT not because it was dark, but rather because, in my opinion, it was everything OoT plus more. Funkee Dynamite dont speak for everyone please asdfg *Sigh* Guys, I know there were people who cared about it before… I was making a generalization. If I put the name of everyone who liked it before it was cool, my comment would just go on and on. I’m just talking on a larger scale. You can’t deny that MM has been under the spotlight lately. DragonSilths I agree with you. Ryushi :O I wonder if this may be a hint to that Majora’s Mask HD remake, everyone was begging Nintendo to make? Daniel Assist trophy 🙁 Jack5221 Assist trophies are always fun. Especially the puppy from Brawl, how it jumps all over the screen blocking everyones view. Im very curious as to what the next batch of assist trophies will do next. Tornmage Me and everyone I’ve ever played the game with hates it. lol i found someone who likes it i guess Ashley King I’m only going to say this once and I will continue to delete comments that bring it up.

Lil J Moore Majora’s Mask HD remake for WiiU. Who’s with me? BIG Franky no thanks…. lets use the efforts and resources that would be required for that and actually focus on the NEW Zelda or other NEW projects, whether those be new IPs or new Metroid, F-Zero, Wii U Animal Crossing, or whatever…. Nostalgic_Chaos Yes… Akatosh New Zelda is being made. Miyamoto is making a new IP. Metroid is on high priority list for Retro. Animal Crossing just came out… or whatever. Gabe Hoffman Let me guess he summons the moon to fall on everyone Lil J Moore He better otherwise I will be very disappointed Tornmage Nope, he hits you with a paddy wacker. crocodileman94 Awesome Nostalgic_Chaos Assist trophy’s were a great addition to the franchise in Brawl. However, I feel that there could have been more of them, more characters to be seen and included as assist trophy’s and not just a handful. After a while, it gets kinda boring seeing the same old characters pop out all the time. It’s no longer a surprise after a while. The same can be said for Pokeballs. Need more variety, more Pokemon to be seen and enjoy. Hopefully with the new upcoming Smash Bros, they can take advantage of the amount of new Pokemon there are now in general. 100+ assist trophy’s would be a nice number. The amount of pokemon you can see via the Pokeballs should be even more…. Double the content of Brawl would be a perfect game, and more content online. That is all. Guest Test SuperBob Just like Brawl, he’s gonna pump out all of the game’s contents before release so we won’t have any surprises when the game comes out. This is the least excited I’ve been for a smash bros game. Nostalgic_Chaos These are just teasers, and actually, from a business perspective, these teasers will bring in more sales. The advertising method that Sakurai did with Brawl did not effect the game in a negative way at all concerning sales or excitement. It only increases the anticipation. I’m sure there will still be many surprises. GermGerm Nope! I agree with superbob! I LOVE not knowing which characters I will unlock throughout the game. I don’t want to know all of them!! I want surprises! However, it doesn’t mean I am not totally stoked for this game. Akatosh I’m the exact opposite. I couldn’t care LESS about a game until they pump out screenshots and trailers. Justagamer @ashley this game is coming to Wii U http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yo5GPKEmUmg Justagamer As much as i love zelda games..I am not a fan of majora’s mask so i will pass on that zelda game Akatosh *dies. Justagamer Nah Im too busy to die today Akatosh You killed me. MM is my favorite Zelda game. Justagamer That cool ..I just have desire for it but more power to ya and hope it comes out so those who do like it can play it catsby Would be cool as a playable character.. Kinda tired that the old characters gets announced like they were new when they are not. jjbredesen Well i guess that means we get to se MM HD at VGX, Reggie said we would get to see a new look for a game for Wii U, duh that means a remake 😀 Zorpix Holy shit never even thought of that jjbredesen Yeah Skullkid in Smash and the mask in a link between worlds has got to mean something dam i can’t wait for tomorrow 😀 Not to spoil anything, but people mention the mask a lot in Lorule, but there is no majoras mask connection in the game’s story. Zorpix I’m still really unhyped for tomorrow. I’m so scared they’re just gonna show Donkey Kong or something jjbredesen Nah i don’t think so because it says a new look for a game. So DK could be there, but not as the main attraction. Zorpix New look at an upcomming game. It sounds like something we’ve already seen. Either way, I’m staying unhyped. Nintendo has been kinda stupid lately, so I’m preparing for the worst. Love em to death, but they’ve been making bad choices jjbredesen True, but i will stay hyped because look what i just found in the source code of the VGX website: Alexander Kleinwechter OH GOD, imagine! jjbredesen Hehe yup i am almost 100% sure now, if that is not proof then what is? Majora could not mean anything else than Majora’s mask. BIG Franky ugh… I hope that is a scam… if that is the big announcement, what a fail. 🙁 jjbredesen hehe 😉 Lord Carlisle You dastard. You just typed that into the source code yourself. Why’d you have to pull a hoax like that? That “hehe ;)” confirms my suspicions. jjbredesen Sorry just thought it would be funny to see how many people would belive me XD I don’t think Nintendo would make a remake now Aounoma said that they where going to focus as much as possbile on Zelda U when they are done with ALBW 😉 paulthevgking hm hm hm, read my reply and you’ll learn why it’s fake jjbredesen I have already stated that it is a joke lol 😛 Hugh Quinn its fucking happing 😀 😀 😀 jjbredesen Yes it is 😀 Hugh Quinn I sent the pic to the Operation Moonfall Page on Facebook Matt Elgie I really did not buy a Wii U to play remakes. Don’t get me wrong I love WWHD, but nintendo needs to show some footage of upcoming games or a new ip. If not alot of could be future Wii U owners will turn to the systems focusing on new games. IMHO Akatosh Zelda U is supposedly to be announced next year. This could be another game to keep us patient. Matt Elgie Us Wii U owners have had patience. But it’s not about the owners, its about offering something to a larger demographic of people, and unfortunately old remade games will not do that. They have a following yes, but are not system sellers. Akatosh Not everyone has played the classics. Least of all I would imagine the audience at VGX. Xavier Lopez Chabelo Zelda U was supposed to be announced at E3 2013, then it was supposed to be announced at NY COMIC CON by Aonuma. Aonuma only said that he will have more info at E3 2014, just that. So far, Nintendo had two times to reveal this game. Some people say that “The third time is the charm.” Akatosh A. It’s a Majora’s Mask remake. B. It’s a Majora’s Mask sequel. C. It’s a different Legend of Zelda altogether. D. It’s a joke. asdfg *kisses your face* thank you. Xavier Lopez Chabelo Well with all the pain of my heart it would be stupid if they reveal Majoras Remake at VGX. We as Nintendo fans we are going to be happy as shit, but think about all that western audience… “Nintendo is out of ideas!!!” “WTF is this!! I expected Zelda U” “A remake? LOL” “GTFO Nintendo” “Nintendo is Doomed” ETC… Lord Carlisle Mm… that better not be the main announcement. If it is, it better be an amazing looking HD version on the U, or better yet, a MM sequel/prequel. jjbredesen Now that i agree with, but what could they do in the sequal… Majora has been destroyed.. Lord Carlisle We both know how easily get away with just having Majora revived. Ganon does it all the time. But an origin story of the mask would be ideal… one that expands on Ikana. jjbredesen Yes that would be awesome, whatever it is a am really hyped for tomorrow 😀 Akatosh MM sequel!!! Don’t be hyped. Don’t be hyped. Get off train. Off Hype train… Krzysztof Yep. It’s coming. The question is, is it going to be a remake or sequel ? Akatosh What is this madness!? jjbredesen You don’t need to understand the HTML code to see that it says majora in it. The code is tied to the (p) section that says that reggie will be showing a new look of a new game. (p) meaning paragraph. Mozellergodt It’s the worst fake I’ve ever seen 😛 “codename majora” lol .People should try themselves to see how easy it is to edit HTML in Chrome. Guest shh 😉 Akatosh lol I jumped on the hype train too quickly. Too bad this is fake. You had me going for a bit. Mozellergodt Can’t believe people are falling for this. Stop feeding the troll 😛 It makes no sense adding stuff like that to HTML. Checked the site myself just to be sure. Zorpix Hrm…. Honestly dont think another remake will hype people up that much though… Especially a remake of (here comes the hate) such a mediocre game jjbredesen I do have to agree with you on that MM is not the best Zelda game out there and i would want them to show Zelda U instead. I did not like the 3 day cycle thing, but the story of the game and the emotions are fantastic. Would rank it my 5th fav: 1. WW 2. OOT 3. SS 4.TP 5.MM 6. MC I am not done with ALBW yet so can’t rank it. btw: This is a joke 😛 simple HTML editing can prank a lot of people XD Zorpix heh. HTML editing is fun. My room mate made an option on the Dominos website that let him select “Zimbabwe” off the location drop down jjbredesen lol i once added a porn video to our schools webpage frontpage. They was not to happy, but never found out who it was XD Zorpix XD Dominos had protection though, and data validated what was entered through their form jjbredesen Yeah most websites do, you can hack a lot of “noob” websites with some basic code, so that you can be any user on there Database. Zorpix ever heard of little jimmy droptables? 😛 jjbredesen I think i have seen the term/name before, but i dont know what it is?? Did he hack his school or something? Zorpix nah, I’ll show you later 😛 jjbredesen Ok…(nervous) Zorpix http://xkcd.com/327/ jjbredesen lol XD jjbredesen BTW some people have taken my joke a bit to serious and i have seen a lot of comments on youtube and on projekt moonfall and even some gaming sites saying that they have found codename majora in the vgx sounce code, dam ROFL I am now a famous hacker XD NintenScience lol Zorpix XD wow… NintenScience xd Tornmage Wait did you add the porn with your browsers inspector or did you actually get into the website and add it so every one on every computer saw it? jjbredesen I made myself administrator on the school network and gained acces to the server that hosted it, and embeded a video from there. Lord Carlisle I’m annoyed. I just made a bet with somebody about this on GameFAQs. Curses. jjbredesen Bwahaha sorry could not help myself XD Magnus Eriksson lol! you got away with a comment like that 😀 Zorpix apparently I’m not the only one who hated the time limit 😛 Rinslowe Although I totally do not agree with the mediocre comment, I do totally agree with another remake this soon being a huge fizzle, if true…. Zorpix well, thanks for not getting all in a tizzy about an opinion :3 I like you Rinslowe Lol. It seems I have some residual stigma left from previous disagreements… Hmmm. Please understand that I very rarely engage in that conduct with individuals that first treat others with respect. I tend to be a magnet to those that consistently treat others with a lack of respect. And I’ll be honest in saying I disrespect these individuals in return solely for this reason. Totally my fault in equal part for getting involved, but I doubt it’ll be the last time…. I’ve never considered you to be disrespectful to others that I can remember. Thanks. Zorpix oh no, I’m not saying you’re normally aggressive. I’m just saying that I was glad you weren’t like a majority of Zelda fans who would rip my throat out for having an opinion 😛 Rinslowe Oh….yeah. Nope, no throat ripping here. 🙂 NintenScience Oh no… Rinslowe State your intention Guest *gulp* NintenScience What? Rinslowe So you are the downvote troll… I take it? The exact no of downvotes in my reply to another poster and your reply within the same time it took you to reply. I would say that is a very good indicator that you are using multiple accounts. You should know that I don;t care at all for downvotes or upvotes for that matter. NintenScience 🙁 DragonSilths If its a Majora’s Mask remake I will just shake my head and walk away. And say well good on you Nintendo, fucking up again. Akatosh So why do you hate MM hm? A lot of fans have been asking for it. DragonSilths So? A lot of fans have been asking for fucking remakes of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and Emerald and those are my most hated Pokémon games lol. I hate MM cause any game where there is a time limit for the whole game instantly gets a 0/10 from me, I liked the idea and story and look of Majora’s Mask, but that fucking time limit. In Zelda I want to explore and take my time, not constantly being nudged along. Akatosh Heheheh too difficult for you eh? It’s okay. We all have certain games we suck at. 😉 DragonSilths No, I disliked the Pokémon of that gen, the music I wasn’t a fan of and such. Akatosh I was talking about MM actually. The game’s too hard for you. I get it. DragonSilths Typical. Wasn’t to hard. I just felt I had no motivation to play it. I had to force myself to play it before just saying fuck it I don’t give a damn anymore. Much like DKCR 3D. I had to force myself to keep playing it although I finally beat DKCR 3D still didn’t like it. Although I tend not to like a very challenging game. I wish games started off the hardest then as you go through it got easier and easier. So the final boss or whatever took 1 hit. THAT WOULD BE AMAZING. Akatosh Well, as I played MM, the time limit MADE the game. It just wouldn’t be the same without the pressure, and if they took the clock away, I wouldn’t buy it. DragonSilths So either way 1 of us wouldn’t like it lol. Akatosh Better keep it like the original then. paulthevgking Don’t be;believe him. he is on inspect element. on inspect element you can write anything you want in the code and will disappear after reloading or leaving the page. also i checked on the same domain, not there. jjbredesen It’s a joke XD NintenScience haha asdfg LOL @ all the people believing this. NintenScience lol NintenScience HTML lol Jack5221 I would like a MM HD remake! I remember playing it as a kid, for some reason it always scarred me. If it proves to be true then Im predicting a March release date. Assuming that leaked release date for smash bros was true, April something, then we would be getting DK in Feb, MM in March, then Smash in April. Throw Mario Kart 8 somewhere in that mix, and we’ve got at least 1 good game per month for the 1st half of next year! jjbredesen Agreed 🙂 But MM would take a little longer to remake than WW because its an older game with older code and the textures could not be upressed they would have to redo all of them. Akatosh I hate to point this out but you do realize WW HD actually WAS made from scratch right? They didn’t Update anything. They redid everything. jjbredesen They imported the World and gave it HD textures, but some of them where actually just upressed. And then they added some new futures and shaders. Akatosh I could of sworn I heard WW HD was built ground up. jjbredesen Not 100% but do you have a sorce? Jack5221 It seems really possible. Especially with all the Majors Mask references as of lately. The mask shows up in Animal Crossing new Leaf, A link between worlds, and now Smash Bros. Then in a interview between the main producer of Zelda and IGN, they asked about a Majoras Mask remake and he replied saying “Tell them I laughed” And to top it all off, Majoras Mask is the only classic Zelda game that has not gotten a remake yet. jjbredesen Yeah i agree, but MM is not the only game that has not got a remake… If consider a classic zelda game Gamecube and older then the games that have not got a remake is: The Legend of Zelda (Orginal) Zelda II: The Adventure of Link ( Second Zelda on the NES) The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (A link between worlds is a remake.) The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (first handheld game.) The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Seasons (first GBC games.) The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Best 2D Zelda game and) And we also have 4 swords, but i don’t think they need a remake. DragonSilths Except Nintendo already said before IF THEY DID A REMAKE FOR MAJORA’S MASK IT WOULD BE ON THE 3DS AFTER A NEW ZELDA. Which was A Link Between Worlds. Majora’s Mask 3D for Fall 2014. jjbredesen Do you have a source? I want them to show Zelda U, but just wanted to point out that when you analize what has been said. We could see a remake for Wii U, i have not said that i want it. Magnus Eriksson nice deducing. jjbredesen For starters, twice this year Nintendo had already planned to show off the game. The first was during E3 2013. The second time was during a presentation Eiji Aonuma gave at the New York Comic-Con. These two occurrences alone already suggest the game is at least ready to be presented publicly. It may still be a year or two away from release, but it’s in a form that can be presented publicly. I am not making that up. It’s already been proven twice this year straight out of the lion’s mouth. Of course, prior attempts to show it off doesn’t imply this is the event that it will finally make an appearance at, but there are several hints that something Zelda related is on the way. First and foremost, Reggie himself was rocking Zelda attire yesterday during a Nintendo specific event. Geoff Keighley is the host of VGX this weekend. He retweeted an instagram from Reggie himself showing off the Master Sword at his desk. Reggie is going to appear at VGX to make the announcement. He is rocking a Zelda shirt. He has the Master Sword at his desk and only just now decides to point it out for no apparent reason. Geoff Keighley retweets the Master Sword as if it’s actually note worthy. Geoff Keighley is hosting VGX and likely already knows the entire lineup. Things are starting to add up. Of course, this could all be coincidence. After all, A Link Between Worlds just came out a bit over a week ago, though it’s note worthy none of the attire actually relates to the game itself. His Zelda jacket is from the NES Zelda. The Master Sword is present in multiple games. Still, you could argue that we are reading way too much into this. Okay fine, that’s fair, so let’s continue Remember when Eiji said he doesn’t take inspiration from Skyrim, but if it did happen it’s just a natural process? Okay keep that as a note. Remember the reaction to Twilight Princess at E3? Okay, bank that memory as well. Remember now how they almost showed the game off twice? Okay, keep that fresh too. Now, note that Nintendo has never actually appeared at VGX, formerly known as the VGA’s. Interesting that now is the time they choose to appear there. At a show that traditionally doesn’t cater to the Nintendo crowd and will be heavily leaning towards the western audience. In fact, almost every single game being shown off so far that has been confirmed is particularly popular with western gamers. Showing off Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze doesn’t make any logical sense at this venue. Not even Smash Bros. These are gamers watching that traditionally don’t play Nintendo games. Not even Smash. Now, keep in mind all that I mentioned above: What Nintendo game can make non-Nintendo fans believers again? Hint: It’s not Bayonetta 2, since the first game only sold a million combined copies. It’s not X, since it’s part of a more niche genre. X is a JPRG, just doesn’t have that western ring to it (sorry folks, I know I want more X too). It’s Zelda. Zelda done in a way that appeals to western audiences. Done correctly, Zelda U could blow the roof off the live show. It will be all anyone is talking about after. It doesn’t matter if Nintendo says nothing more on it until E3. One trailer is all we need to get the fires burning. Nintendo needs something to calm the Wii U fires. To invigorate confidence in their console. Talking more about games we already know about likely won’t fix a thing. Super Mario 3D World hasn’t done it, so now it’s Zelda’s turn. Nintendo needs positive buzz surrounding their home console now more than ever. A show aimed at western gamers that shows off the one in-house Nintendo title capable of a E3 2004 reaction is exactly what the doctor ordered. Eiji may not talk about Zelda U until E3 2014, but that will be because he’s too busy making it. Time for Reggie to take the wheel this one time. Xavier Lopez Chabelo Good copy-paste from Zelda informer XD. jjbredesen Hehe now that’s embarrassing… Xavier Lopez Chabelo I know its Zelda!!! I have a feeling its Zelda!! I mean it just makes sense. The only games they could possibly reveal at the VGX are Metroid, Starfox and F Zero. Most of the western “hardcore” audience dont care about japanese stuff like X or Bayonetta 2. Its just makes sense, Zelda, Metroid, Starfox or F Zero. If they show DK or a new character for Smash well… sorry Reggie but GTFO. BIG Franky FWIW…. remember, Miyamoto had previously already stated that they came very close to showing off footage from the new Zelda at this past E3-2013…. but then decided not to at the last minute and to hold off… if they had enough footage for a sneak preview 6+ months ago, well then they are able to put together a solid, show-stealing trailer for the new Zelda now… they need to… they NEED to create buzz…. if they come out with frigging Cranky Kong… then that is a FAIL of epic proportions. fact. jjbredesen Agreed 🙂 Akatosh I predict Bayonetta honestly. It makes too much sense. I’m not sure if Nintendo wants to drop their bomb this early. They run the risk of hype drying up two years before launch. Gameonfool Just play the original, Nintendo need to make some NEW games, maybe one day they will do something new Akatosh Nintendo needs to make new games. Sony and Microsoft need to make a couple new GENRES. Xavier Lopez Chabelo You know what people?? Its Zelda… I know its Zelda!!! I have a feeling its Zelda!! This game has been dying to be revealed to the public and it just hasnt happened. And all of the sudden Nintendo wants to show something at the VGX for the first time. Its Zelda. Remember, this is not E3, this is not a Nintendo Direct, this is not a Nintendo event or something like that. THIS IS THE VGX PEOPLE. A show that doesnt care to the Nintendo croud at all. Its a show for the Wester audience. Just imagine if they showed Dk or Smash. All of the way over there to show Cranky Kong available as a playable character or Reggie Mii for Smash bros?? In front of a NON NINTENDO croud?? Really?? It just doesnt make sense!!! It doesnt make sense for them to show some DK It doesnt make sense for them to show a playable character of Smash bros. It doesnt make sense for them to show Monolith Soft X. It doesnt make sense for them to show Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. It doesnt make sense for them to show Bayonetta 2. The only games they could possibly reveal at the VGX are Metroid, Starfox and F Zero. Most of the western “hardcore” audience dont care about japanese stuff like X or Bayonetta 2. Its just makes sense, Zelda, Metroid, Starfox or F Zero… or a new IP If they show DK or Cranky Kong as a new character or a new character for Smash well… sorry Reggie but GTFO Marcel Pérez um they said to showcase a new look in an upcoming game… this doesn’t say exactly that it’s going to reveal a new game,it’s more on the lines of revealing something from the already announced games for 2014, which only could mean DK, Smash, X and Bayonetta Bob Charlie You’re right, I think. Nothing was mentioned of a new game announcement, just more footage from a game that’s already been announced. Deep down it would be incredible to see a new Zelda, or more information on X, but we’re going to see new gameplay from DK or MK8. Xavier Lopez Chabelo You know that if that happens the gaming community is going to bash Nintendo in way that…. I really dont want to imagine that. “Wester Hardcore gamers” dont care about DK, MK8, Mario, Pikmin, etc. and also they dont care about japanese games. Just to give you an example of the general audience of this show, Samuel L. Jackson was the host of th VGA 2012 insulting, joking, etc. XD Akatosh Actually, it’s highly likely they’ll show off Bayonetta 2. That screams VGX audience. Shigeru Miyamoto damn home boy.. you said it man! I couldn’t agree more!!!!!!! if they show anything less than some badd ass heavy hitter that they haven’t showed yet. like if they show something they already showed like MarioKart8 or even smash bros. then they’re stupid. i mean i love smash but people get images on twitter we already have an idea of what it looks like from the trailers and daily images. they have to show something new. Metroid… Zelda! Rinslowe You have a very infectious point of view here! CEObrainz The model looks really nice, initially thinking this was a playable character I’m not terribly disappointed he is an assist trophy. It would be cool if certain characters could call assists similar to TvC and other games… aldo2410 He will make the moon apear above the stage!!!!! say hello again to majora’s moon Matthew Ethan Revok https://soundcloud.com/revokation/a-bipole-says-whaaaa Guest ashley if i give you a story would you make it into an article found a nice article explaining why 360 ports dont work properly but literally the only gaming site iv seen it on is playeressence. and as this is wiiudaily you might be able to get it into the bigger media circle? Akatosh Everyone knows 360 ports don’t work properly because 3rd party developers never bothered learning the Wii U’s new architecture. Michael Ocampo This is AWESOME!! I hope if they do make a remake for MM, they should make it for Wii U for two reasons. 1. Wii U needs games. 2. I’d rather have it be in HD than in 3D.

Wii U NEEDS THIS SHIT MORE NINTENDO. Akatosh Yeah Wii U needs some love. Stoenk It’s very likely going to be for 3DS I’m afraid. It’s a direct sequel to ocarina of time and they would be able to reuse a lot of things like they did with the original versions. ScrewAttack Yeah that’s what I’m expecting 🙁 MASSIVE wasted opportunity if you ask me… asdfg No, it doesn’t. It doesn’t need more remakes. Do you have any idea of how many people say that Nintendo is running out of ideas? Plus, the ones who would buy a MMHD already have a Wii U. I highly doubt a 13 year old game with pretty graphics would help the Wii U in a significant way. It doesn’t cater to the audience Nintendo needs right now. ScrewAttack You mean the trolls? The Nintendoomed crowd? The people that have been saying the exact same thing for going on twenty years or thereabouts? Who cares what those people have to say? They’re obviously wrong. And, tt’s not just a “game”. It’s one of the most popular 3D Legend of Zelda titles around. So your idea is, ignore the 5 million people that have the console in favour of trying to net a new audience……isn’t that what got them into this situation in the first place? Doing that with the Wii? Ignoring their existent user base in favour of “maybe” getting new consumers to board ship is pretty much the stupidest idea you could suggest. asdfg Choosing not to do a remake would be “ignoring 5 million people”? I don’t think even half of the Wii U users want it. They’d rather get new games instead. New games that will appeal to the install base it already has and that might attract new owners. And I only said that because you said “Wii U NEEDS THIS SHIT MORE NINTENDO” like this remake would help move a significant number of units. It won’t. Seriously, leave this game to the 3DS. The Wii U already got WWHD. HD games are way more expensive and require a bigger team to work on. Nintendo would need to rebuild the game from scratch. They would waste time and money developing a remake when they could be using them to make new, awesome games. ScrewAttack I’m operating under the assumption the majority of that number are Nintendo fans. Nintendo fans……even fans on of other consoles enjoy Zelda. Remaking an old goldy would not be a bad move. Yeah, no that wasn’t want I meant. I meant it relatively- Wii U DOES need it more than 3DS. 3DS already has a long stellar software lineup, Wii U is still building its own and needs any quality title it can get. So my statement stands. How you got otherwise I don’t know. Maybe, but it still only took 6 months to get WWHD together. Based on that I don’t imagine it’d take more than a year to put an HD MM together, and then they have nearly all the assets they need to put out OoT (or vice versa). Bam, two much-loved titles in HD that’ll sell damn well. Huxley Tanner Yes please! Sdudyoy Ehh, Skull kid would be awesome to play as but I trust the developers, and I really can’t think of how he would play. PS4/WiiU It would actually be amazing if he were a new character. I was kind of disappointed when I saw he was actually an assist trophy Nicolas Dorion I hope he makes the moon fall or something that’d be cool Sdudyoy Am I the only one who didn’t know Marth has been confirmed? Tornmage I dont know why, but im really looking forward to the Wii Fit Trainer lol barwiifan Lol and he’s in Zelda Skyward Sword too apparently. I hope he doesn’t destroy the place of my favorite Zelda game! ilovegoogleglass What are fanboy names for Nintendo? No offensive working on a website? NintenScience xd lonewolf88 nintendo aight dropping nukes there dropping the moon! Xavier Lopez Chabelo I really hope they show Zelda today at the VGX. But still expect the worse… http://i.imgur.com/rPADYxk.gif jjbredesen Ok everybody! I hope your bodies are ready because VGX 2013 is going to start in T-Minus 3 min! Lets hope for the best!
