Majora’s Mask 3DS Player Performs Star Wars Cantina Band Theme In-Game
Using music and video skill, a Majora’s Mask 3DS player has successfully recreated the iconic Star Wars Cantina theme.
A player was recently able to play the iconic Cantina theme from star wars using virtual instruments in the Nintendo 3DS version of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Hide. The emblematic chapter of the Zelda The franchise has been the inspiration behind countless fan art and side projects over the years, with a recent example being a 3D model of the Majora’s Mask Antagonist Kid Skull.
Often considered one of the strangest and most original entries in the Zelda series, Majora’s Mask certainly no shortage of fans and admirers. The game starts as usual Zelda mode, with players filling the shoes of silent protagonist Link as he wanders through a forest. Misfortune befalls him soon enough, however, as he is transformed into Mojo with the Magic Mask Mojo. There are several masks players can discover throughout the game that change gameplay, but only the Deku Mask, Goron Mask, Zora Mask, and Fierce Deity Mask will transform Link. These first three masks will give Link access to the unique instruments of pipes, guitar, and bongo drums, which players can use to play certain magical songs. The 3DS version of the game breathed new life into these instruments, as shown by a fan who recreated Toto’s Africa with Majora’s Mask implements.
Echoing this creation, a Reddit user by the name of Naaaayte managed to play an equally iconic tune in the 3D version of the game. A video Naaaayte shared is a montage of four separate clips, each with Naaaayte playing a different part of the song. When mixed together, it’s almost a perfect recreation of the Cantina song from star warswith Deku’s pipes forming the main body of the song and Zora’s guitar establishing smooth string support.
Even for those who don’t know or don’t particularly like Majora’s Mask, this achievement will likely leave a lasting impression. The deft use of 3DS instrument mechanics, along with Naaaayte’s simple yet effective editing, make this clip a sight to behold. by Majora Hide has arrived on the Switch as part of Nintendo Switch Online, so it’s possible other series veterans and newbie players will create their own cool tunes throughout the game as it drops between the hands of more players.
Although the game’s developers may not have imagined that fans would use Majora’s Mask recreate star wars music decades after its release, it’s definitely a welcome result of the gaming community for many. As well as being impressive and entertaining on its own, it’s kind of a testament to the impact of the game’s legacy, to the fact that gamers still eagerly engage with it today. Hopefully this won’t be the last of these Majora’s Mask musical montages.
