Nintendo will be releasing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
with a shiny golden cartridge, just as it did with the release of
Zelda 64: Ocarina of Time. This time,
the golden cart will not be restricted to just those early adopters who pre-order the
game; anybody who picks up Majora's Mask
early enough should get one. However, Nintendo advises that the golden carts will
only be available in limited numbers, so pre-ordering might be the best way make sure one
finds its way into your Nintendo 64.
And that's not all! Nintendo has also promised that the special editions of
Majora's Mask with be
garnished with a special "lenticular" label. RPGamer is unclear as to what this means.
A lenticular label could be a label that is shaped like a lentil turned sideways,
but it also could mean that the label will have tiny corrugations or grooves like those
molded or embossed into the surface of a projection screen. Only those who get
their paws on early editions will know for sure.
Expect Majora's Mask
to be advertised through the fall on TV as well as via 60-second ads on screens
at movie theaters across the country. Majora's Mask
will first become available on October 26, the same day that the PlayStation 2
makes its American debut. Expect October 26 to be a crazy day at your local
videogame shop and RPGamer News will be there.
