Could the upcoming Zelda: A Link Between Worlds contain a reference, possibly a tease for a Majora’s Mask remake on 3DS? Or simply just an acknowledging of the characters from the 2000 N64 classic?
One of the biggest additions to A Link Between Worlds is Ravio’s shop. He’s a merchant who wears a mask that sort of makes him/her look like Nabbit from the New Super Mario Bros series. But look closer and compare Ravio’s character model against the Happy Mask Salesman from Ocarina of Time/Majora’s Mask and you’ll see that they look very much alike.
There are small differences like the gold at the neck line but they both wear long purple outfits. In addition to this it appears that Majora’s mask itself is visible in the lastest trailer for Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
You could have ruled off the two character’s looks being similar as coincidental but this seems to point at Ravio being related to the Happy Mask Salesman somehow. Are they the same person? Why would Ravio have Majora’s mask? This seems to be a bit too much to be coincidental, don’t you think? For now I’d label this one a rumor but Nintendo doesn’t do things for no reason. There has to be a good reason why Ravio looks similar to the Happy Mask Salesman and possesses Majora’s mask.
Hopefully when the game ships on November 22nd we’ll find out if there is any connection at all or if Nintendo is just being a big tease.
