Nintendo doesn't offer Collector Editions of its games often, but when they do, they go all out. Announced this morning for North American release at select retailers, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D special bundle for the Nintendo 3DS is coming for $49.99 and includes a limited edition figurine of the game's mysterious Skull Kid antagonist. GoNintendo has the press release.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D follows in the footsteps of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, which launched for the Nintendo 3DS system in 2011. Like that game, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is a reimagined version of a classic Nintendo 64 game with updated 3D graphics and new features.
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. The game finds players solving puzzles, battling enemies and controlling time itself to help Link save the mysterious world of Termina and its terrified inhabitants from being crushed by the moon. By releasing this one-of-a-kind adventure for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, a new generation of fans can experience the dark, twisted, fantastic adventure for the first time.
Usually Nintendo's special editions are limited to stock at the company's Nintendo World Store in New York City, so it's fantastic to see that they're offering this bundle for sale at regular retailers this time around. You will have to preorder if you want a chance at buying it though. No way will this make it to regular shelves. No release date has been announced yet, so keep your eyes open for more information. These will go fast, I promise you. Let's just hope that given Nintendo's recent talent for undershipping demanded products that they manufacture more than seven of these sets.
