The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is one of the most special video games in the Nintendo saga. The sequel to Ocarina of Time made the concept of the passage of time its own and gave prominence to the figure of Skull Kid, identity and the moon. Now, more than twenty years after the original release of the work on Nintendo 64, a programmer has discovered through the code of the game something that we did not know: the position of the stars in the sky has a reason.

Nothing is coincidence: the stars in the sky of Majora’s Mask have a meaning
User Zeld640 (via GameRant) has indicated in his personal Twitter account that the position of the stars in the sky in Majora’s Mask is governed by an algorithm based on the player’s name. Depending on the characters of the name entered at the beginning of the game, the arrangement of the stars will respond to specific random criteria.
This means that each player has unique constellations depending on their first name. Although this aspect does not have any kind of connection with the gameplay – that we know – it does add to the list of symbolic elements of one of the darkest, most particular and full of mysteries titles of the intellectual property of the hero of Hyrule.
It should be noted that this circumstance refers specifically to the Nintendo 64 version, not the Nintendo 3DS remake developed by Grezzo that we received in 2014.
Both Majora’s Mask and Ocarina of Time are studio products by both amateurs and programmers, who do not stop investigating the code of both works due to their extraordinary nature. As if it were a mine, the years go by and they continue to find information and data of great documentary value that help us understand a little better the genesis of the story of The Legend of Zelda.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask It can be played on Nintendo 64 with its original cartridge, on Wii U through the Virtual Console and, soon, also on Nintendo Switch through Nintendo Switch Online; but its date is not yet decided.
