Although we’re a bit late on reporting this, considering this teaser was revealed back during E3, it’s simply too enticing to ignore. A collaboration between entertainment studio Ember Lab and music producer Theopany, the first teaser for a very promising-looking fan-film based on ‘The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask‘ has been revealed. One of the more impressive looking CGI efforts to come out of a fan production, the short 42-second teaser showcases beautiful animation and a snippet of a soundtrack that’ll give any diehard Zelda fan goosebumps.
Not much is known about the film, such as how long it will be or what aspects of the plot it aims to cover, but from what we’ve been teased with, it can be assumed that the end product will be breathtaking nonetheless. Theopany already has a history with projects related to Majora’s Mask; back in 2012, they released an album of remixes of the game’s soundtrack, entitled Time’s End. With all the hype surrounding the Zelda franchise with the recent reveal of Breath of the Wild, this incredibly detailed and lovingly-crafted rendition of one of the series’ most timeless installments is more than welcome.
This ambitious new project is slated to release within the later half of this year.
Just a guy who really loves Nintendo and also happens to love writing. I’m way into Godzilla, horror movies, anime, the word ‘egg’, and various other super cool things. Although I’ve been playing games since I was young, and the N64 is my favorite console of all time, I first fell in love with Nintendo after playing Super Mario Galaxy on Wii.
If the second season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows us anything, it's a renewed sense of confidence in itself. Like its characters, Buffy is a hell of a lot more sure of itself in its second year. particularly as the season goes on. While "Halloween" showed that this show was more than willing to get silly for an episode, "Bewitched, Bewildered and Bothered" doubles down on that to glorious effect.
It wasn't too long ago that we barely had any new games released on a Nintendo console and now it seems like we can hardly keep up. It's another big week for the Big N with releases of Pokken Tournmanent DX, Thimbleweed Park, Steamworld Dig and so much more.
With the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey being only the third Mario game in the same vein as Super Mario 64 (following Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine), it is high time to reexamine one of the evergreen staples of the video game canon.
Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.
