These are a lot easier to stumble across than the Skyward Sword Easter eggs if you know what you’re looking for.
In Ocarina 3D the Happy Mask Shop has been drastically remodelled with more swanky curtains, a carpet, a classier rules board and err… disco balls. There are also masks on display on the shop floor now.
Recognise them? They’re all from the Happy Mask Salesman’s travel bag in Majora’s Mask! You can even just about make out the Mario mask obscured behind the mirror on the right hand side. Also, they seem to have doubled up on the blue ape-looking mask to make up space.
Things are also a bit more vibrant behind the counter. But what’s that over the salesman’s right shoulder? It’s his travel bag without all the masks! That’s another nice touch.
Those are the only two Majora ones I’ve found. They’re pretty obvious if you think back to what the shop looked like in the original release of Ocarina:
I would have loved to have seen a post-credits scene that galvanised Ocarina and its sequel further, much like the Chrono Trigger ports for the Playstation and DS did to Chrono Cross. There’s no additional dialogue with the Skull Kid in the Lost Woods who is strongly implied to be the same one in Majora’s Mask, I checked. Ah well.
Thanks for reading and let me know if you find about any references I might have missed in the game.
