Another couple of excerpts from Game Informer‘s interview with Eiji Aonuma have been transcribed. The latest Q&A covers the pain behind Link’s transformations in Majora’s Mask, and the soul inside the Fierce Deity Mask.

Check out the full responses below:

GI: “Why does it hurt so much for Link to wear the transformation masks?

Aonuma: We’re talking about masks that were created to contain the memories of people who have died. Often there are things they really wanted to do before they left this world, so becoming them is actually really painful because it’s like hosting a really powerful spirit that’s coming into you.”

GI: “Whose soul is inside the Fierce Deity Mask?

Aonuma: The best I can give you is just a suggestion. The best way to think about it is that the memories of all the people of Termina are inside of the Fierce Deity Mask.”
