Majora's Mask 3D - Three Years of Nothing

Majora's Mask 3D has been in development for over three years, but it seems like nothing much has happened in that time. They added two fishing ponds and that seems to be it. I never even liked the fishing from Ocarina of Time...

I had quite some ideas for this remake in the past including a Master Quest, a third Skulltula House, more uses for the Picto Box, Miiverse integration and more. Yes, the Master Quest was kind of a stretch, but they had enough time. I mean, this was longer in development than some new games.

It doesn't seem like they added any more features or otherwise they would have already showed them. Graphically it's also not any better than Ocarina of Time 3D. They still use textures for stairs like it's 1998. How hard can it be to model actual stairs?

At least they changed the Song of Double Time the way I wanted! You can now select the exact hour you need, which is super awesome. The new fishing ponds also look great, though I still really want that third Skulltula House.

I also guess that it's still possible that there might be an unlockable Hero Mode. They kept the one for A Link Between Worlds a secret as well. But it probably only will be double / quadruple damage and maybe a mirrored world, because if they went through the trouble of implementing a Master Quest, they would have told us by now.
