This month’s issue of Nintendo Dream has a rather large interview with Eiji Aonuma, longtime producer of the Zelda series. While the Japanese magazine asked Aonuma about a variety of topics, Majora’s Mask was the main focus. Aonuma talked about the origins of the Majora and Termina names, the Mirror Shield’s connection to a mask owned by the Happy Mask Salesman, and more.

Head past the break for our full translation. The discussion is definitely interesting!

There’s been a lot of talk over the past few weeks about SEGA’s shift in development. The company now intends to focus on PC and mobile as opposed to traditional gaming systems. However, that doesn’t mean SEGA is stopping console development entirely – especially when it comes to Sonic.

Japanese outlet 4Gamer recently interviewed Takashi Iizuka, head of Sonic Team. In one question, 4Gamer asks if SEGA is transitioning Sonic into a smartphone franchise.

Iizuka confirms that this isn’t the case. With the recently released Sonic Runners, SEGA simply felt that mobile was the most suitable platform for the game. Iizuka added, “Personally, I don’t plan to stop Sonic for home-video game consoles.”

So there you have it! We should eventually hear about another Sonic game for consoles. Let’s just hope it isn’t as disappointing as Sonic Boom.

Thanks to Mii for the tip.

Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL systems have been tough to find around the world. However, a listing from GameStop indicates that the handheld could be restocked in one country next month.

If a listing from GameStop Italy is accurate, the Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL system will be available once again on March 27. Pre-orders are currently live here.

It’s important to point out that this situation is specific to GameStop Italy at the moment. There’s also a possibility that the retailer’s listing is inaccurate. We’ll keep you updated if there’s anything new to share about the situation.

There have been plenty of manga adaptations based on The Legend of Zelda over the years. Akira Himekawa led the way on creating manga for several titles, including Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword, and more.

Another Zelda manga made by Akira Himekawa was for Majora’s Mask. To celebrate the launch of Nintendo’s remake on 3DS, images have been shared showing a scrapped chapter. The chapter would have centered around Link stumbling upon Romani and Cremia as the two struggle to control the horses Cremia uses to drive her wagon.

Keep your eyes peeled for a look at another scrapped part of the Majora’s Mask manga in the near future.
