A Limited Edition version of the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask remake for the 3DS will be released exclusively in North America, Nintendo has announced.
The bundle, which will cost $49.99, features a copy of the game along with a figurine of Skull Kid, a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series along with the primary antagonist throughout most of Majora’s Mask.
The official announcement from Nintendo reads: “Fans of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask know the significance of the Skull Kid character. He is the face of the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems and, just like the game itself, can be described as mysterious and foreboding.
“Now fans can own a beautiful collectible Skull Kid figurine to accompany them on their adventures by purchasing the limited-edition The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D bundle at select retailers at a suggested retail price of $49.99. The bundle launches on the same day as the game and includes both The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D game and the detailed Skull Kid figurine. The launch date will be announced at a future time.”
The remake of the Nintendo 64 classic is one of the highlights of the 3DS’ year, with Shigeru Miyamoto claiming that it is much more than just a simple retouching of the 14-year-old game. Considering the spotlight Nintendo is putting on the game, it’s a shame that this Limited Edition set will only be coming to the US, with there being no announcement regarding whether or not international 3DS owners will be treated to a similar bundle for the game.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D has no confirmed release date, though is expected to launch during Q1/Q2 of this year.
