Operation Moonfall Update: Encouraging Response From Nintendo of America

Through a Facebook group, numerous emails sent to Nintendo of America, and a petition, Operation Moonfall aims to show Nintendo that there is definitely a strong interest in Majora's Mask 3D from Zelda fans.

Recently, Zelda Universe user Zorathan received a reply to the email he sent to Nintendo regarding Majora's Mask 3D.

Thanks for writing. We appreciate the enthusiasm of our Zelda fans! I can understand why you would like to see this game released for the Nintendo 3DS. I would like you to know that your comments have been documented and reported to the relevant departments here at Nintendo.

At the risk of dampening the excitement you feel, I must be clear that no official announcements have been made regarding a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 3DS. However, we like hearing what our consumers find important.

We hope you continue to enjoy the Nintendo 3DS and all the great titles currently available or on their way. Keep checking our website (Country Selector at Nintendo) for all the latest news and information.

There's still a long way to go if Majora's Mask fans want Operation Moonfall to come to fruition, but this is definitely positive feedback. Fans are shouting out, and Nintendo is listening! Compare this response to Nintendo of America's official response to a similar project: Operation Rainfall.

Thank you for your enthusiasm. We promised an update, so here it is. We never say "never," but we can confirm that there are no plans to bring these three games to the Americas at this time. Thanks so much for your passion, and for being such great fans!

While the letters start out pretty similar, the response to Operation Moonfall does much more to let us know that Nintendo is taking this seriously. Also, compare "there are no plans" to "no official announcements have been made", and Operation Moonfall seems to be getting a better response from Nintendo.

For those of you who support Operation Moonfall, Zelda Informer and Majora's Mask fans across the world thank you for your support, and we want you to know that you can make a difference. In about a week's time, Operation Moonfall's Facebook group has grown to almost 7,000 fans, and the petition for Majora's Mask 3D has reached, dare I say it, OVER NINE THOUSAND signatures. Keep up the good work, and let Nintendo hear what you have to say!
