FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask Lets Music Fans Relive the Legend

SEATTLE - May 25, 2018 - Materia Collective is excited to release FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask, a massive 79-track collection of arrangements from the beloved The Legend of Zelda title for the Nintendo 64. FATE offers an eclectic mix of genres and styles that reflect the tone of the original soundtrack, and is divided into three parts: The First Day, a collection of tracks driving the anxiety and elation of the first foray into Clock Town; The Second Day, a melancholy selection representing the denial and doubt that the moon is falling into the Earth; and The Final Day, a shorter yet intense set of pieces accenting both the dread of the end and the glimmer of hope that still shines in the world's final moments. FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask is fully licensed and available now.

"The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask stands out because, more than any game in the franchise, it dealt with the positive and negative issues that human beings constantly face - grief, death, the passage of time, fear, rejection, and temptation, but also friendship, reconciliation, perseverance, justice, hope, and love," comment album producers Sam and Peter Bobinski. "These themes made for a unique storytelling experience. The game's musical direction incorporates sounds and instruments typically used in Chinese opera, and explores minimalist styles; neither typically found in Zelda soundtracks. Our favorite moments are the boss pieces and the final encounter with Majora."

"Cherry Blossoms Outside ClockTown" is a refreshing re-imagining of the Clock Town theme, combining elements of orchestral, funk, and Japanese folk music to create a beautiful and mysterious atmosphere. "Nova Onda Bossa" is the debut of Materia Brasilis, an ensemble dedicated to arranging game music in the styles of Brazilian music. Laura Intravia's "The True Face" is a choral and orchestral tour-de-force depicting the final battle of the game, taking the listener through an intense musical journey.

Super Mario Odyssey's RC car track gets ported to Mario Kart Wii, thanks to modders

I've poured so much time into trying to get the fastest laps in Super Mario Odyssey's RC car track. Now I can enjoy the same track on a much grander scale, thanks to this Mario Kart 8 mod! Let's hope Nintendo takes a hint and includes this in the next Mario Kart game!

Random Time! - 3D printer used to play the Mii Channel theme

I wonder if Nintendo knew how much of a long-lasting impact the Mii Channel theme would make on the public. People just love the song! I'm sure plenty of other weird/fun covers of the song are on the way.

Nigoro hints at La-Mulana console release, also open to porting the original to current platforms

While it was a long and winding road, Nigoro eventually got La-Mulana out on WiiWare. Ever since that release, the team has been hard at work on a sequel. La-Mulana 2 isn't too far off from PC release, but could it also come to current-gen platforms like the Switch? In an interview with USGamer, Nigoro had this to say.

"We've developed good relationships with Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. We just need to be careful with the timing on console releases where no one's going to get pissed off about it. The game is all made in Unity, so I hope it should be a painless conversion."

The team has also been asked numerous times about bringing the original La-Mulana to current-gen platforms. While nothing official is happening, Nigoro does have interest in the idea.

"The subject of a port has come up several times. If there comes a time when you aren't able to download the game to any current systems, yeah, we definitely want to make sure that we can keep it available. There's nothing at all concrete about bringing it other platforms, but it's something we'll consider doing."

Nintendo handling publishing duties for Go Vacation

Earlier today we found out that Go Vacation is making the jump from Wii to Switch, bringing a handful of changes and upgrades with it. Apparently Nintendo really believes in the game, because this time around, they're going to be handling the publishing duties. I wonder if Go Vacation can make a bigger splash on Switch this time around, especially with Nintendo's marketing muscle behind it.
