1001 Video GamesThe N64 version of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
DevelopmentAs with Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask was meant to be released for the 64DD add-on, but eventually got crammed into cartridge format.
GanondorfBoth this game and The Minish Cap are the only Zelda games in which Ganon/Ganondorf doesn't appear, not counting Link's Awakening in which the shape-shifting final boss assumes his form briefly.
MusicThe song Ballad of the Wind Fish previously appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
ReferencesSeveral persons, items and music from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time return in this game, in either the same or a different role.
References to the gameIn the MTV animated series Undergrads, the game's black countdown screen (which greets you at the beginning of each dawn, provided you're not in a dungeon) was parodied with the words "72 HOURS UNTIL THE END OF FRESHMEN YEAR" in the season finale.
TingleThis game marks the first appearance of Tingle, the strange man who thinks he is a fairy.
