Zelda Fan Recreates Toto's Africa Inside Majora's Mask

The weird and wonderful Zelda series has had some interesting swings and misses over the years, but when it comes to delivering the wacky, no game stands out quite like the dark and unnerving Majora's Mask. Thankfully, someone has changed the tone with a musical interlude.

Forget the abandoned Snowpeak Manor of Twilight PrincessOcarina's Gollum-like Grog, or chickens with human faces in Twilight PrincessMarjora's Mask has all of these licked. From disembodied hands poking out of toilets to the ghostly Kamaro, floating aliens known only as Them to THAT horrifying moon lurking above Termina... it's like no other game we've ever seen. 

How Can You Play Toto In Majora's Mask?

Majora's Mask has had something of a resurgence thanks to its recent arrival on the Nintendo Switch's N64 expansion. Joining 1998's Ocarina of Time, this Millennium madhouse is bringing players old and new to Majora's Mask. In case you need another reason to play, one gamer has turned it into a musical melody that can play Toto's 'Africa'. 

While most of us might immediately think of Ocarina as the most musical in the Zelda franchise, 2000's Majora's Mask chucked the ocarina out the window and gave you a whole orchestra of instruments to play with. Using some creative nous, YouTuber BigFatFrown has managed to play the 1982 banger using the Nintendo 3DS.

As you can see from the video, the OP had to go back into the game numerous times to recreate the signature sounds of Toto's karaoke favourite. Some of the bits are a little off, but using masks to recreate Goron Link and the bongos, Zora and Link playing the guitar and pan flute, and Deku Link with the Pipes of Awakening, consider us impressed.

What Have Fans Said About Africa In Majora's Mask?

Given that 'Africa' is such an icon in its own right, players have rightly gone wild for this nostalgic trip down memory lane for music and video games. One supporter said, "This guy has more musical talent in his stylus than I do in my entire body," while another added, "I’m a music teacher/gamer who grew up on Toto and still see ‘em live with my Dad when they come to town! This is radical man!! I love all the little harmonies you completely nailed!! 10/10."

Majora's Mask might be one of the more niche Zelda games, but with the Switch bringing it back to the mainstream, let's see if more of you will be trying out your musical streaks and recreating more classic tracks in Termina. Come on, someone needs to make Neil Diamond's 'Sweet Caroline' next.
