New Super Mario Bros. Scene

Screenshot Required

When you enter the Hyrule Castle garden where you first meet Zelda, look through the window on the right. The room inside contains blocks, pipes and a background design based on New Super Mario Bros.

This replaces the Mario picture cameos from the original game.

Happy Mask Salesman's Collection

Screenshot Required

Most of the interiors in the game have been redesigned. Inside the Happy Mask Shop in Hyrule Castle Town as Young Link, there are shelves covered in masks. All of these masks were originally found on the Happy Mask Salesman's backpack in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. You can even see the backpack hidden behind the Happy Mask Salesman.

The Mario mask from Majora's Mask is just barely visible behind the mirror in the shop.
