A legend returns in style with these special versions
During The Video Game Awards 2014, hosted by Geoff Keighley, Nintendo stole the show and dropped the biggest bomb of 2014 as far as Zelda fans are concerned. They revealed their upcoming re-release of the hugely popular game, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask which is easily the darkest game in the long running and hugely respected series.
In Europe, fans who pre-order the game are getting a beautiful paperweight-esque block with Majora’s Mask encapsulated within and a special edition that contains a steelbook case, poster and pin. North American fans are however getting the infinitely more impressive special edition. Nintendo of America revealed via press release that North American gamers can get a special edition of the game that will come bundled with a figurine of the Skull Kid clad in Majora’s Mask.
At this time, the special edition isn’t available for pre-order but the game isn’t set to launch until “Spring 2015”, so there’s still plenty of time. The regular edition of North America’s Majora’s Mask will cost $39.99 whereas the special edition will cost only $10 more.
The reception to Majora’s Mask’s re-release and it’s various pre-order incentive and special editions has been especially warm, and in Nintendo’s own words, “There is a reason The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is loved by fans all over the world. It is one of the most unique and suspenseful entries in The Legend of Zelda series, one that critics and fans have called a true masterpiece.”
