GameSpot — 9/10

“The overall package for Majora’s Mask 3D preserves all the weird delight of the original game while lowering the barrier of entry for new players. There’s still a lot that’s challenging about the puzzles and fights, but a few minor tweaks make your hard-won heart containers and masks feel that much more satisfying. The changes to how you can control and manage time mean the otherwise dense Majora’s Mask is comfortable for shorter play sessions, making it a great fit for the handheld. It’s evident that Nintendo put a lot of thought into updating this classic, which takes the game beyond a simple remake to become a new-old classic.” – Alexa Ray Corriea [Full review]

Polygon — 9/10

“The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is the best version of a game that’s still unlike any other game ever made. And that makes this remake something very few remakes are: Unconditionally fresh.” – Griffin McElroy [Full review]

VideoGamer — 9/10

“The game feels perfectly designed for a handheld thanks to its time and mission structure, meaning you can speed through a loop in just a few hours on your journeys. Majora’s Mask is brilliant, and disappointingly still the most innovative Zelda game ever released. For those looking to get lost in an ever-so-creepy adventure, Clock Town is the place to be.” – Brett Phipps [Full review]

Game Informer — 9.25/10

“Purists will decry the changes made to Majora’s Mask no matter how slight they may be, but I am seated firmly in the ‘change is good’ camp. It’s everything you remember, but without the boredom or frustration related to the passage of time. Majora’s Mask was a game ahead of its time in 2000, and revisiting it under this new lens only confirms that sentiment. Whether you’re returning to Termina or visiting it for the first time, Majora’s Mask 3D is the ideal way to experience this classic.” – Kyle Hilliard [Full review]

Nintendo Everything — 10/10

“It’s strange, perhaps, that a game in which the main premise revolves around repeatedly travelling back in time was so ahead of its time. In its enhanced form, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D defies its age and manages to stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the very best games on 3DS. Quite simply put, it’s a masterpiece that every 3DS owner should play.” – Martin Watts [Full review]

IGN — 8.7/10

“The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D proves that interesting game design and strong world-building never get old. Even 15 years later, it still delivers charming characters, tense resource management, and a world rife with personality. Despite some cumbersome menus and a single drag of a dungeon, Majora’s Mask is a great adventure that (repeatedly) stands the test of time.” – Marty Sliva [Full review]

GamesRadar — 4.5/5

“Majora’s Mask is still as much of a joy to experience as it was a decade and a half ago. Play it for the fancy graphics, the lighting, and the added portability if you want, but just make sure you play it. At first glance a sort-of sequel to Ocarina of Time that’s long been seen as the quirky younger sibling that’s not to everyone’s taste, Majora’s Mask blossoms into a sweet, scary, timeless tale that’s a showcase of Nintendo’s brand of creative genius at its most unconstrained. It might only be a remake–but it’s only a remake of one of the most interesting, experimental games of its time.” – Kate Gray [Full review]

Shacknews — 8/10

“The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is just as much an oddity as it was fourteen years ago. While some aspects of it haven’t aged well, Nintendo has made enough smart changes to make this remaster worth a second look for those like me who left the original undone. It’s nicely presented, shows some real growth of the seeds planted in Ocarina, and is easily among the most unique games in the franchise.” – Steve Watts[Full review]
