Eiji Aonuma, the producer of The Legend of Zelda games, wants fans to celebrate the launch of Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 3DS. Aonuma wants fans to draw art based on the game.

The guidelines are simple: contestants must use Art Academy: Sketchpad in order to enter, the art must be Zelda-themed, and you can only submit one piece. If you want to enter, comment on Aonuma's post.

"The submission period will end on March 01, 2015 or when the number of comments reaches 1000, whichever comes first," Aonuma said.

"I'll also announce drawings I like along with my comments as I come across them on The Legend of Zelda Japanese Twitter account, and later on The Legend of Zelda Facebook page and on Nintendo's American and European Twitter accounts."

Majora's Mask for 3DS has already received favorable reviews.

"The overall package for Majora's Mask 3D preserves all the weird delight of the original game while lowering the barrier of entry for new players," Gamespot stated. "There's still a lot that's challenging about the puzzles and fights, but a few minor tweaks make your hard-won heart containers and masks feel that much more satisfying.

The changes to how you can control and manage time mean the otherwise dense Majora's Mask is comfortable for shorter play sessions, making it a great fit for the handheld.

It's evident that Nintendo put a lot of thought into updating this classic, which takes the game beyond a simple remake to become a new-old classic."
