The story

Play as the chosen hero Link in his journey to finding his beloved friend, Navi the fairy. As he is traveling through the forest, a strange figure appears. An imp by the name Skull Kid, possessed by Majora’s Mask, along with the two fairies, Tatl and Tael knock Link off his horse unconscious. Link wakes up with his belongings and horse nowhere to be seen. When Link catches up to the imp, he is transformed into a Deku Scrub from the evil magic of the mask. Link arrives at a place called Clock Town with Tatl who was left behind from Skull Kid. They meet a mysterious person known as the Happy Mask Salesman who tells them the story of his stolen mask; Majora’s Mask. He tells Link if he returns his precious mask he will transform him back to normal. They are given three days to complete the mission because the moon will come crashing down at 12 on the third day.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is the sixth main installment of The Legend of Zelda series, first released on the Nintendo 64 in 2000. Unique among The Legend of Zelda series, the game includes a time system that spans three days, and this cycle must be reset periodically to progress through the game. Majora's Mask is one of the few Zelda games in which Ganon does not play any role whatsoever. In addition, Princess Zelda does not play a major role; she is only seen once in a flashback scene from Ocarina of Time.

Majora's Mask is the sequel to the first 3D Zelda game, Ocarina of Time,and uses the same engine, as well as many art resources. Many of the conventions pioneered in Ocarina of Time are present in Majora's Mask, including characters, enemies, and items.

On November 5th, 2014, a Nintendo 3DS remake of the game was announced on Nintendo Direct, Majora's Mask 3D. The remake was released in February 2015.
