Don’t worry, this isn’t a repeat of 2008’s April Fool’s trailer.
Whilst Nintendo has been teetering on the border of film production for a while, some dedicated fans have come together in the meantime to offer up this impressive trailer for an upcoming short film, based on The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.
Flaunting spangling CGI visuals, the short film is a joint-project between indie studio Ember Lab and musician Theophany. According to Theophany’s Facebook page (via. Eurogamer), the short film will be around three minutes long, and will release later this year.
The fan-made teaser opens upon a floating Skull Kid, giggling chirlishly like the maniacal menace we know and love from the game. Judging by the teaser’s stunning visual designs and creepy soundtrack, the short film looks to be a promising homage to the classic N64 title. You can watch the trailer above.
Theophany is known for its composition of atmospheric musical pieces for short films, as well as remixes of video game soundtracks, including Earthbound and Majora’s Mask. You can check out some of Theophany’s work here.
Ember Lab, meanwhile, has been involved on a number of animated projects, including a recent short film for 2016’s Euro Cup. For more information, you can visit Ember Lab’s Facebook Page.
