Grezzo Hiring To Make A ‘Legend,’ Could Be Majora’s Mask 3D

Update: GenGAME’s Alex Plant can confirm that the Japanese text in the headline is in fact recruiting to make a ‘legend.’ The text below the headline talks about the past work that Grezzo has done on 3DS (including Ocarina of Time 3D), so they are very likely recruiting for a 3DS game.

Grezzo, the company that developed Ocarina of Time 3D and Four Swords Anniversary Edition, has just posted a listing for job openings. Interestingly, the job listing page itself is quite short and brief, with a prompt to click a link for more details. This takes you to a second, more stylized page with a headline that reportedly reads (we’ll update with the full translation from Japanese as soon as possible) “Would you like to make a legend with us?” The word ‘legend’ is highlighted by a golden glow. Aside from two Zelda titles, Grezzo has only worked on a WiiWare game and the Street Pass title Flower Town. Could Majora’s Mask 3D be the next adventure they tackle?

    • trev

      i don’t believe you’re seeing the same thing i am

  • Jonathan Brown

    I guess it would be OK. But MM was certainly not one of the better titles in the series. It is kinda around Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks level. It was decent, but certainly not worthy of a remake.

    • Matias

      I think you underestimate the whole of the Majora’s Mask community who think the exact opposite of what you just said, but then again that’s your opinion. I personally side with the Moonfall fandom in thinking that Majora’s Mask is in definite need of a remake. Keep your opinion, though!

      • Comrade Cold

        It is one of the games in the series that I enjoyed the least, but that is probably why I want this remake more than any other game in the series, I feel playing it on the Wii virtual console really wasn’t the best way, especially at a time when I was falling out of gaming for a while.

    • Agumon_Ql_Sabio

      Imo Majora’s Mask is better than Ocarina of the Time, so yeah. It deserves a remake I think.

    • lizalfos

      Yeahhhhhh, nah. It’s arguably the best Zelda. Easily top 3 for me, personally.
      Next time I suggest you omit words like “certainly” and put “imo” somewhere. Because what you said was a minority opinion. A valid opinion, for sure, but not something to be presented as fact.

    • The Satellite

      Just posting here to say that I agree with you so you don’t feel overwhelmed by people with contrary opinions. :P

      I mean, arguably I’d play Majora’s Mask again sooner than either DS title (though I enjoy those too, don’t get me wrong), but in my list of favorites it’s in ninth place. Majora’s Mask still had its moments though. Probably the best final boss in the series, and that soundtrack is gorgeous.

    • Lotti Sidwell

      Opinions…

    • Jonathan Brown

      To expand upon my issues with MM…

      The Legend of Zelda and time limits are really not two things that go together in my opinion. Now, take the time limit out of that game, and it would be a wonderful addition to the Zelda series with the changing of forms and puzzle dynamics. The time limit takes it from being one of the best ever in the series to being somewhat mediocre. It’s not quite on par with Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, or Wand of Gamelon type of bad, but it is certainly not “The Legend of Zelda” NES 1986 great.

      • Comrade Cold

        While you do make a good point, out of the five 3D titles in the series it is the game which put the most emphasis on exploration, not in a physical sense, but through exploration of the different characters and side quests. That said it isn’t one of my favourites, mostly down to the stage in my life I played it and the fact I didn’t finish it, but I do respect it as it dared to be different and I think the thematic overtones make it one of the best stories in the series.

        • Jonathan Brown

          Oh, I don’t have a problem with the story. I actually enjoyed the story, and Link helping different people around the world in different ways instead of just questing to save the damsel in distress. The only real problem I have with the game (and I purchased the gold copy day one of release), is with the time limit. Give me the open world to explore, add a time element to the game, but to give a limit to do things and then insta-death or start over if you can’t? Not worth the added stress. This simply does not need to be remade. Just release the original on the VC and be done with this stain on the series.

          • CB

            What stress? You can literally slow down time and then rewind! You don’t even need to rush, I took my time, like I would finish the temple on one run, and then grab all the fairies in the other. You honestly don’t even need that much time to beat things. Not to mention no other Zelda game has made NPC’s as interesting as the ones in the game. When I play any other Zelda game, the NPC’s might as well not exist, except for the shopkeepers and even they aren’t useful later in the game. The world isn’t even as big as other Zelda games, the routes are all pretty linear and straightforward. Not that much exploration to be had so you really have plenty of time to see the entire world. If you were as stressed as your letting on, then you were seriously reacting too heavily to the intended stress the game was supposed to give you, not the stress of the time limit, but the stress that everyone was going to die in three days. The game is the darkest of any entry in the series, and it really broke away from traditional conventions. The game has so many feels, and as you play the characters really grow on you, and they become so lifelike, while in other Zelda games, the NPC’s could be talking bricks and nothing would change. Sorry but you’re forgetting about all the good things that this game did for the series, and hating it for one aspect of it that you didn’t like. You need more reasons to dislike a game than just one aspect, I could provide several reasons why SS was a disappointment for me but that’s a different story entirely. Sorry but you need to back your opinion with more than just how much you hate the time limit. I also don’t get the fetish for the original game either. I mean yeah it was revolutionary when it came out, and exploration was great, but it hasn’t aged that well. I’m not calling it bad, it just hasn’t aged that well. If you want me to elaborate on that then I will, but this paragraph is too long.

      • http://www.triforcetalk9.blogspot.com/ Linkfan99

        The thing about the time limit is, it absolutely required it for quite a few of the sidequests and optional content in the game. Plus, if you’ve played the reverse Song of Time, the 3-day cycle gives you a full 2 hours and 42 minutes, which is plenty of time to complete a dungeon or go explore around the world for a bit.

      • Justin D Naylor

        I despise when people use the “time limit” against the game. Adding it put a great measure of panic when the Moon got near. Such a wicked feeling in a video game. Not to mention the different times actually effected the world and made for the best side quests a Zelda game ever put out. Best Zelda game imo,

      • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJZ6xiQoOYCLQoE3EBpuaMA Alex Jones

        I really despise the time limit argument because it is an argument that ignores everything else about the game. It’s picking on one aspect of the game and condemning it based on that. The game gives you more than adequate time to do whatever you want in it’s 3-day cycle which then resets at the end allowing you to continue your quest. The primary plot items (Dungeon items, masks, etc) stay with you, they give you a song to slow down time, and there is simply no crunch with time as long as you know how to manage it. It’s the main thing I hear people complain about, and almost every time it comes down to people not knowing how to handle the 3-day cycle.

        The 3-day cycle adds far more to the overall experience than any other Zelda has had before. Termina, unlike Hyrule, is a living world with people with real schedules. You learn about these people and their lives as you relive those days over and over again. This is something you simply didn’t get out of games from that time… Hell, it’s not even something you get out of games TODAY and that aspect is horribly under respected with people constantly complaining about imagined time constraints.

        And, seriously? Equating it to (or close to) a CDI Game? Low blow, man… low blow.

        • CB

          Not to mention the owl statues for teleportation. You could save good time early on by doing that.

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJZ6xiQoOYCLQoE3EBpuaMA Alex Jones

            Exactly. And the time limit has added to battles for me. I remember my first time fighting Gyorg in the final hours, trying desperately to kill him before the moon crashed. That is one of my favorite Zelda memories (up there with beating Demise with 6 hearts and no shield)

    • BlackRaven6695

      I like both Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks more than Ocarina of Time. Just sayin’.

      *Ducks into bomb shelter*

      • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJZ6xiQoOYCLQoE3EBpuaMA Alex Jones

        I liked Spirit Tracks a lot, but Phantom Hourglass is one of my least favorite Zelda games.

    • Mania

      Majora’s Mask was my favorite game of all time. Hehe.

    • DarkLink

      are you killing me?? Majora’s mask IS the better of the series!! not the longest, yes, but the better, yes!

      • VladNorris

        Lack of content and for the supposed “depth” it has for each characacter, there are a lot of “talk to this guy once, use the mask once, done” sidequests(you get the Bremen Mask and a sticker on the Bombers’ Notebook by merely talking to an NPC for fucks sake)
        So no, it’s the weirder, but there are various reasons why I can argue is not the better other than from a hipster point of view.

        • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJZ6xiQoOYCLQoE3EBpuaMA Alex Jones

          It depends on what you consider depth. I would argue there is a good amount of depth in both Majora’s Mask and Link’s Awakening. Whether it was intended is irrelevant. A story is what you put into it. I would argue that Majora’s Mask is filled with both intentional and unintentional depth that really raises the game above that of your standard Zelda faire. Though, I also think that holding a games simply to it’s mechanics is a very disingenuous way of looking at them. I mean, by that Logic, The Walking Dead is just a lot of clicking on random things, or Zelda is just a bunch of mashing the B button to kill things while solving simple block-puzzles.

          • VladNorris

            “Though, I also think that holding a games simply to it’s mechanics is a very disingenuous way of looking at them.”
            Not when you consider all things, that take included.
            For instance, I actually dismiss games like the Walking Death because of it’s minuscule investment in actual interaction(games are not supposed to be interactive movies)
            That being said, it’s not only the mechanical implications, is the implication there’s not much other than little details to care about. Many of these people have awkward, simplistic and almost unnatural backgrounds to them. Seriously, depth to the world and character interactions, both playable and non-playable, have been done better, like in the Final Fantasy games.
            In a nutshell, it’s above the average Zelda game, but that’s it, and that’s not a significantly big standard.

    • joostyboy

      I just loved the fact that nearly every character in the game has a back-story and the overall darkness of the story. Of course it has its flaws. But I see that as another reason to have a remake, which will also give them the opportunity to put in more side-quests and maybe a few mini dungeons. So yeah. Remake-worthy, in my opinion.

    • Billybo-yt Pokezelda

      You cannot compare Majora’s Mask to Phantom Hourglass or Spirit Tracks… It’s in another league compared to the 2D games… Just… no…

  • David Weber

    And this is on the homepage. I’m only use to Zelda causing this much abuse of the color gold.

  • WildBam

    That would be cool. certainly would like to see majora’s mask remade like orcarina of time was.

    Though if I can have any wish come true, it would be a wii u HD remake of both orcarina of time and majora’s mask on the same disk. I know the chances of that happening are near zero, but I really wish for it to be so.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      People thought the same for Star Fox U at E3, so anything’s possible (even Half-Life 3).

      • CB

        Half-Life 3 has actually been confirmed, so that solidifies your comment even more.

  • David Weber

    Then again, knowing how they like to troll the fans, it’s probably a 3D remake of A Link to the Past, to capitalize on A Link Between Worlds.

    • Andrew C.

      na they wouldn’t remake A Link to the Past. No way they would make two 3DS Zelda titles back to back that use the same entire map of Hyrule. All they would do is copy and past A Link Between Worlds and replace few dungeons. I think MM is finally going to happen!

      • David Weber

        I very much hope you are right. My only other guess would be Four Swords Adventures 3D, sporting local and online multiplayer.

        • Billybo-yt Pokezelda

          Oh god, not four swords. They are probably the only games in the series I just generally don’t like. Keep hoping for the Majora!

    • Bruce Fauble

      List of Zelda games I think have a chance to be remade by Grezzo
      Legend of Zelda
      Zelda 2
      A Link to the Past
      Link’s Awakening
      Majora’s Mask
      Oracle of Ages/Seasons
      Four Swords Adventures
      Minish Cap

      The handheld games are much more doubtful in my opinion. I see LoZ, Zelda 2, A Link to the Past, and Majora’s being the front runners.

      Keep in mind that 2016 is the 30th anniversary of LoZ. If Grezzo is hiring now, it is entirely feasible that they could be looking at remaking a LoZ title for that milestone.

      • Guest

        List of Zelda games I think should be remade by Grezzo:
        All of them

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        True, all of that true. I really don’t see FSA or Zelda 2, though. Adventures wasn’t too well received, it seems (however, Four Swords was). The only way I see a remake of LoZ 2 would be if they did a Classic Zelda pack where they remade 1,2, and LttP. Wouldn’t be shocked about a Link’s Awakening or Oracle remake. MM is the front-runner for me though, or A LttP.

        • Comrade Cold

          I think people have really come around on Zelda 2, more often than not when I see someone list their top five Zelda games it makes it more often than not, but maybe that is just the more hardcore fans. That said there are clearly more logical options.

      • Comrade Cold

        I personally think that the fact that all of them bar Majora’s Mask and Four Swords Adventures, are all available on virtual console, there is very little precedent for remakes of 2D of Nintendo games (Pokemon aside) and they already have the assets from Ocarina of time 3D, means it is pretty certainly Majora’ Mask.

  • Cjhbbass .

    This sucks, I want it for the wii u… 3DS is a trashy gimmick.C

    • Andrew C.

      I hope this is a troll comment lol the 3DS is not a gimmick. It is a very great handheld console. I mean… look at the sales lol

      • Mania

        I want it for Wii U as well. I think the 3D function is a gimmick. Its rather awkward. Not bad but I keep it off 99% of the time.

    • Zeller

      Yeah i guess the #1 best selling console of 2013 is totally a gimmick

      • Cjhbbass .

        3D is definitely a gimmick, I never use it. Also gaming on it just isn’t nearly as fulfilling as on an HDTV compared to the trashy low res screen of the 3DS.
        Don’t get me wrong I’ll be happy to get it on whatever it comes out on but would be happiest if it was released for both or the wii u.

    • killerbox13

      Just because they are making it doesn’t mean itll be for the 3Ds (unless I missed where they said it is for the 3DS). The first game they made was actually for the Wii, not a DS, so it still could be for the Wii U

    Nintendo Fans don’t you get tired from playing rehashed gamed !?

    • Erimgard

      Every company does remakes eventually. It’s been 14 years since Majora’s Mask came out. That’s plenty of time to dust off an old classic and give it a fresh coat of paint. Given that the graphics engine is already there from OoT 3D, it’ll be cheap and easy to produce, and it would be a nice filler while we wait for a brand new game. Don’t like it? Don’t buy it.

      • Billy Kostyra

        people like you are the ones who’s ruining gaming the reason why nintendo keeps rehashing there games it’s because you keep buying them and also because Nintendo is a terribly unoriginal, uninventive, game developer that has no original ideas at all anymore. Even their hardware reflects this. The wiiu is a wii with a new controller, the wii was a gamecube with a new controller. The 3ds is a dsi with a 3d gimmick, the dsi was a smaller ds. And all of their toys are just chess sets, figures, pullback racer cars, plushes with nintendo characters on them. All of their periphals are just a empty bowling ball with a wiimote in it, a round piece of plastic with a wiimote in it as a steering wheel and so on.

        • Erimgard

          Nintendo wouldn’t be making this. Grezzo would. The Nintendo/Zelda team would continue working on a brand new game while Grezzo makes a remake.

        • lizalfos

          All of Sony’s consoles are just the previous one with better graphics. Same goes for Xbox Nintendos consoles also make a graphics upgrade PLUS whatever other thing such as new controller or 3D.
          Meanwhile ps4 and xb1 are just weak gaming PCs. Same games, same hardware, just weak comparatively. Nintendo, although weaker still in hardware, offers experiences you can’t get on PC.

          Plus remakes are all over gaming. Did you see e3? Microsoft and Sony unveiled a bunch if remakes.

          Ah yes because Nintendo is the only company to do this. Considering the PS2 and PS3 controllers were literally the same, while every single Nintendo controller has been different with different features. The PS4 controller is only modified but still the same essentially.Same with X-box. Oh yes, only Nintendo is unoriginal in anything and the only company to remake games (Halo, Metal Gear, Shadow of the Colossus/Ico, Silent Hill, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, etc. etc.)….

        • Jorge Aguirre

          Its a 14 year old game and its not going to be developed/ remade by Nintendo. You say Nintendo isn’t original and that could be true to some extent but that’s subjective. Looking back at gaming history Nintendo saved gaming with the NES, they were the first (or one of the first) to transform 2D side scrolling games into 3D games (Super Mario to Mario 64, Metroid to Metroid Prime, The Legend of Zelda to The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time) and their game franchises are very success and innovative in my opinion. They were also the first to create a fighting game with a lot of their successful franchises (Super Smash Bros for the N64, which was later ripped off by Sony with All Stars). Nintendo was also one of the first to ambitiously use innovation and become successful with it with the Wii and the Wii remote utilizing motion controls, which then got ripped off by Sony’s PS Move and the Xbox Kinect was actually inspired by motion controls built to compete with the PS Move and the Wii’s motion controls.

          Now in this gen with the Wii U’s game pad, Xbox and Sony are copying by using Smart Glass (Windows Tablets which can be immersed with gaming) and the PS Vita (which can be used as a second screen while gaming on the PS4). The meaning of innovation is to take something and change it or add a new method or idea to it, so that’s all Nintendo has been doing which is taking something old and remaking it into something better. I do however believe the 3DS is a bit gimmicky and not innovative enough (or that it went the wrong direction), I feel that the 3D is a feature that many users don’t use while still being technology they paid for.

    • WildBam

      Right, like Nintendo is the only one doing it. It’s not like anyone can come up with a huge list of video game remakes/collections that are not by nintendo nor even on nintendo that fans buy anyway. No company besides nintendo rehashes games. They all just make a game or franchise, and end it without ever continuing it, I bet we couldn’t even think of one title that has ever been made into sequal after sequel over and over to death, nor continued after the story has ended. I dare anyone to make me a list of non nintendo games that do this.

      You can literally buy that game for like $10 and play it on your Wii/Wii U, or if you want to spend an extra $10 then you can buy it for Gamecube. You would rather have them remake it and slap a $50+ price tag on it than paying a minimum of $10 to play it on a console you most likely already have? Were you dropped on your head?
