Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D (Feb. 13, 3DS)
Nintendo’s 2015 season kicks off with a bang with the hotly anticipated remake of the classic N64 game, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. Long considered by many to be the less loved of the Nintendo 64 duo of mainline games, this year it shares the spotlight with no one as a top Nintendo exclusive. Like its predecessor, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, don’t expect too much other than some enhanced controls and visuals. Just sit back and play a prettier version of the game you loved back in 2000.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (Feb. 13, 3DS)
The latest game in the incredibly popular (especially in Japan) Monster Hunter series is also out on the same day as Majora’s Mask 3D. Yes, it’s just more Monster Hunter; but what makes Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate stand out more than it normally would this time around is that the New Nintendo 3DS also arrives on the same day and will really enhance the camera dependent action game. With the addition of the C stick, players can control the camera and stay on top of the action. This will be sure to grab the attention of gamers that have been on the fence about the portable versions of the game that have lacked that precision camera control.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Feb. 20, Wii U)
Finally, also out in February is Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Following up on the idea that was the centerpiece of the DS game, Kirby and the Canvas Curse, players will be able use the Wii U’s gamepad to guide a rounder version of Kirby across the screen. As with just about every Kirby game, don’t expect a challenge but expect a quality game that put a smile on your face while it lasts.
