Another classic Zelda game will soon make a return.

Nintendo announced Wednesday during its latest Nintendo Direct presentation that a remastered The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask will release for the Nintendo 3DS in spring 2015.

Called The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, the 3DS release will feature various updates and improvements to the original game. The game is being remade in similar fashion to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D that released for the 3DS in June 2011. Majora’s Mask 3D will be available at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop. The game will also be playable on the Nintendo 2DS system.

Majora’s Mask first released for the Nintendo 64 on Oct. 26, 2000 in North America. The game featured darker themes and characters not seen before in previous Zelda titles. In Majora’s Mask, Link has three days to stop the world from being destroyed before the moon crashes into Termina, the alternate world of Hyrule. The game has a repeating three-day cycle limit of traveling to the past to prevent the catastrophe. Link can switch between different abilities by wearing a variety of masks found throughout the game.

Europe will receive a special collector’s edition of the game that includes a steelbook case, poster and pin badge of the iconic mask. Check out this video to see the entire package.

An exact release date for Majora’s Mask 3D wasn’t given by Nintendo.
