A swamp, where one is about to be executed for a crime he did not commit...

A sea, where a fallen musician can only lament his failure...

A mountain, where a leader is powerless to save his people...

A valley, where the ghosts of the past still fight a war that has long since ended...

A town... caught between it all... where the end begins...

And one boy... a hero... with all the time in the world... and no time at all... to save this world...

This is Majora's Mask.

Anju and Kafei at the end of That One Sidequest.

To the south, a swamp. A friend mistrusted.
To the north, a mountain. A hero fallen.
To the west, an ocean. A lover slaughtered.
To the east, a valley. An army cursed.
In the center, a town. Ground Zero.
One boy. A hero. Our only hope.
An ancient evil unleashed. Our doom.
72 hours to save the world.
This is Majora's Mask.
