The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D has an absolutely brilliant conceit: the bad guy is going to destroy the world in 3 days and you have 3 days to stop him… but you also have a little trick that can always bring you back to the beginning of those 3 days.
You remember everything you’ve so far learned (so, for example, if you learn the secret password to the clubhouse of the kids in town, you’ll have it from that moment forward) but you don’t get to keep stuff like the cash in your wallet or your ammo (deku nuts, arrows, bombs, etc). *BUT* you do keep stuff like equipment upgrades (larger wallets, larger bomb bags) and you keep the receipt from your last trip to the bank. So if you left 200 in there, you’ve got 200 at the beginning of the three strange days.
Always get a receipt.
While half of it feels very much like a Zelda game, the other half of it feels like nothing I’ve ever played before. It’s Groundhog Day: The Game. It’s, seriously, the best game to come out for the 3DS in the last year or so.
So… what are you playing?
