The series also revolves around a main plot of getting a sacred treasure called the Triforce, which can grant unlimited wishes. The gameplay consists of a mixture of action, adventure, role-playing, puzzle-solving, and occasional platforming and racing elements.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (ゼルダの伝説 ムジュラの仮面, Zeruda no Densetsu Mujura no Kamen) is an action-adventure game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64. It was released in Japan on April 27, 2000; in North America on October 26, 2000; and in Europe on November 17, 2000. The game sold approximately 314,000 copies during its first week in Japan, and has sold three million copies worldwide. The game was rereleased for the Nintendo GameCube as The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition and it was released on the Wii Virtual Console service in the PAL region on April 3, 2009 and in Japan on April 7, 2009.

Majora's Mask is the sixth installment in The Legend of Zelda series and the second with 3D graphics, the first being The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the game's prequel. The game is set in Termina, an alternate version of the usual series setting of Hyrule, where the Skull Kid has stolen Majora's Mask, an ancient artifact. Under its influence, the Skull Kid causes the moon to head towards Termina, where it crashes at the end of the three-day cycle.

The gameplay is centered on a repeatedly played three-day cycle and the use of masks. Songs control the flow of time and open passages to the four temples that Link must complete. Unlike Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask requires the Expansion Pak, which provides more memory space for enhanced graphics and additional on-screen characters. Majora's Mask was generally well received by critics, who praised the improved graphics and deeper story compared to Ocarina of Time.
