Nintendo is remaking Majora’s Mask for 3DS, and they’ve made a few tweaks to the game to make it more user friendly. The game originally had a rather unconventional method of saving (players could either reset the three day cycle by playing the Song of Time or use Owl Statues for a temporary save file), but the remake will make things a bit simpler. Additionally, the Bombers’ Notebook, used to keep track of what’s happening in the town, has also been altered for easier use.

According to a features description for
Majora’s Mask 3D, the game will still feature owl statues as well as “new feather statues.” This description was translated from German and Nintendo has not yet officially explained the new feature, but the description says they can be used to save your game “at any time.”

Additionally, producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed that the
Zelda team is working to make players more aware of all of the various sidequests hidden throughout the game.

We were told by Mr. Miyamoto that he felt there were a lot of users who finished the original without even noticing all the hidden events scattered around the town. He said that he wanted us to make sure users were more aware of them this time around.

This will be accomplished with a new and improved Bombers’ Notebook, redesigned “to act more like an electronic notebook that leads players to these hidden events.” What would you like to see changed in Majora’s Mask 3D?
