The Happy Mask Salesman was "interviewed" on Miiverse recently and he teased the possibility of an appearance in the next The Legend of Zelda game.
intendo loves to tease its fans to the point of madness sometimes, and the Happy Mask Salesman tease via the latest Miiting is no exception.
"My, my... I've certainly been appearing all over the place these past few days! If this keeps going, maybe it wouldn't be a stretch to expect me to pop up in a new Zelda game, too...? Ho, ho, ho... I've got some new masks, too, if you'd like to try them on... If I do make an appearance, I'm sure everyone will experience such happiness! Believe in your strengths... Believe... Ho, ho, ho..."
As Nintendo Life points out, this popping up in a "new Zelda game" could point to a variety of titles: he could be implemented into Hyrule Warriors, an entirely new Zelda game, or - the horse we're betting on - Zelda Wii U.
Whichever game he appears in, fun new masks will be a welcome addition for fans.
The Legend of Zelda Wii U is slated for release at some point this year.
