The lights are on
Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has been an integral part of the Zelda franchise since Ocarina of Time. Aonuma was recently asked what the chances of seeing a remake Majora's Mask might be, and his response was ambiguous.
In an interview with IGN, Aonuma laughed, and asked that IGN tell readers he laughed. When pressed, Aonuma offered no clarification. "It’s really up to them. If they want to interpret my laughter as, ‘yeah, we’re making it’ or ‘no, we’re not,’ I guess that’s really up to them,” Aonuma said.
Since his work on Ocarina of Time, Aonuma went on to direct Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, but Majora's Mask was the first game that he was officially credited as director.
Our TakeAonuma's response is pretty much perfect considering the mysterious nature and themes of Majora's Mask. Initially, when I first began playing Majora's Mask back in 2000, I didn't like the repeating day mechanic, but as I played more, and especially as I have been able to reflect on the game over the years, I have grown to love the game. I would love to see an update to the game, especially on something like the 3DS. I choose to to interpret Aonuma's laughter as an indication that a remake is happening, mostly because I like the idea of revisiting the game so much.

His laugh probably meant in a year or two, if demand is strong.
I hope we keep getting good remakes, but nintendo needs to create more original content.
I could barely stand MM. I would totally pass on a re-master or updated version.
In other words, "maybe, maybe not... Maybe f*** yourself."
if it happens. put it on wii u.
I'd rather see something new, and mind-blowing.
May we see this happen please, one off my all time favorite games ever
Please do a remake!
No, no, no! No more remakes of classic games and releasing them only on 3DS!
If they remake Majora's Mask, it shouldn't be 3DS exclusive! Release it on Wii U or virtual console. I want to play on a large t.v. not a small handheld device. Afterwards, they can port it if they like. XD
I want a remake of Majora's Mask. I never got a chance to play Ocarina of Time when it first came out, but when it came out for 3DS, it gave me a second chance to do so. Same thing for Majora's Mask. It just gives people to experience a great game and know why the series is very popular first hand.
Yes. Yes. Yes.
I just hope it ends up on the wiiU like WW did, and not the 3DS like OoT did. I really don't like being huddled up around that cramped screen for games as long as Zelda.
To see a remake of any one of those games would be freaking awesome.
Majora's Mask is a wonderful game. I sure hope it comes to the 3DS ! I would love to replay it on the 3DS.
