Enlarging your imagination

Although Shigeru Miyamoto will always be tied to his creation of Mario — the world’s most recognizable video game character — his second most well-known creation, “The Legend of Zelda” (1986), has arguably exerted the largest influence across the industry. “The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask” (2000) — recently remastered for the 3DS — revoked the luxury of allowing players to muddle through its scenarios at their own pace. This is and was intended to be rattling. “The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3-D” (Nintendo) beautifully touches up the graphics of the original game. This is the best Zelda game since “The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past” (1991). Evidence of master craftsmanship is everywhere. By the time you’re flipping a temple upside down, then right side up, you may discover that your imagination has been enlarged.
