Nintendo is giving The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D the triple-A treatment, which means it's getting a collector's edition with an extra bauble.

The company announced a Limited Edition bundle today, to retail for $49.99. It will include both the game and a figurine of Skull Kid, the mysterious antagonist who kicks off the events of Majora's Mask by bringing the moon down on you. The LE will launch the same day as the regular game, though that date has yet to be announced.

Nintendo has previously announced that Majora's Mask is due sometime in spring, finally confirming the remake after months of speculation. We took a closer look at the N64 classic to explain its cult following. It's one of the more divisive games in Zelda's history, but its fans tend to love it passionately, so Nintendo is wise to offer a little something extra for those willing to pony up.

      I never played this back in the day because I always heard it was "the worst zelda!!" and now it seems like people are calling it a "overlooked classic!"... Reading up on it (thanks Shack Staff) it seems like the big thing is a time limit? Fuck that.

        Yes there's a time limit but you can reset it at will, it's not a full game time limit like Prince of Persia. You just have to manage it to make sure you accomplish something on each "run."

          Oh I see, that doesn't seem too bad then. I just assumed I'd get halfway though the game and "oops, times up start over".

            It's not bad at all. Just keep 2 things in mind:

            1) Prioritize. Like someone else said, you should set out to accomplish one or two goals, then go back in time and start other quests. For example, there are only four dungeons, but gaining access to a dungeon requires you to complete many side quests. Don't attempt to solve a dungeon the moment you access it; you likely won't have enough time. Access the dungeon, then go back in time and warp directly to it so you have a complete cycle to devote to the dungeon.

            2) Early on, you learn a song that lets you slow down time. Play the song at the beginning of a new cycle and you'll pretty much always have time to spare whether you're exploring or tackling a dungeon.

            It sounds like a lot of work, but the world is amazingly detailed and super-fun to explore. Just don't try to cram too much into a single time cycle.

              All right, I think I'm on board. I love me some Zelda (even when there's no Zelda!) so the fact that I missed this one will make it a brand new game for me!

                You're in for a helluva ride, friend! MM's world, characters, story, and mood are incredible.

              Goddamn, thinking about this makes me sad. I had so much fun getting all the masks in MM, and thinking about my recent Dragon Age experience, I guess that kind of side quest creation is dying.

        The big thing is the how the 3 day cycle affects the entire gameworld essentially turning the game itself into a Groundhog day like puzzle outside of the dungeons.

        As a kid the time limit and change stuff bothered me to no end. I also wanted a good Ocarina sequel, so it was a let-down there as well.
