A talented artist imagined a new kind of terrible fate for Link from Majora’s Mask by making him a contender on the hit Netflix show Squid Game.
A talented fan has given a new twist to Link’s terrible fate of The Legend of Zelda: The Mask of Majora in a crossover piece that combines the N64 title with the hit Netflix show Squid game. Since its initial release at the turn of the millennium, the game has been re-released several times on Nintendo’s ever-evolving console lineup, and this trend could continue if rumors of Majora’s Mask coming to the Switch are true.
Even if it was the continuation of the series to the classic Ocarina of time, there are many things that separate Majora’s Mask of its predecessor, as well as the rest of the franchise as a whole. The game took on a subtle, but noticeably darker tone, which the series has rarely returned to since. Additionally, the game saw significant adjustments to the series’ gameplay formula at the time, but those changes did not persist in other installments. Despite all these adjustments, Majora’s Mask is held in high regard by a significant portion of Zelda fans, some of whom express their love for the title in various artistic ways.
A recent example comes from the Twitter user Jasqreat, who posted an image of Link in a terrible fate different from going through the five stages of grief in Majora’s Mask. Instead, Link is now part of the world found in the show. Squid game, although the Happy Mask Salesman is there with him. There are a few cleverly hidden details throughout the piece, such as three Squid game triangles forming to make the The Legend of Zelda Triforce – as well as Link’s competition number # 64.
Work inspired by Zelda franchise encompasses a wide range of different media and Majora’s Mask in particular has spawned some truly unique creations. A lot of them seem to come from aspects of the title that aren’t found in the rest of the series. One fan recently went so far as to create an all-edible cake of a floating Skull Kid wearing the titular face cover.
Number of Zelda fan art is growing exponentially every year thanks to the popularity of the franchise. Fans are already eagerly awaiting the release of Breath of the Wild 2, which is currently slated for an unspecified date in 2022, and its release will likely kick off a new wave of new works from the community. Yet while the sequel to Game of the Year 2017 wasn’t just around the corner, Majora’s Mask and the many other pasts Zelda installments would likely continue to generate impressive works like the one featured by Jasqreate. The series has produced full-length titles for many players, so much so that it will likely be a long time before it goes dark.
