Operation Moonfall (occasionally styled Operation: Moonfall) was a fan campaign petitioning Nintendo to remake Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 3DS, much like Ocarina of Time was remade as Ocarina of Time 3D. It was founded in 2011 by Zelda Universe user SuperDecimal. Majora's Mask 3D was finally announced in 2014 and released in 2015, ending the petition.
On August 16, 2011, Operation Moonfall began "Phase 2." In this phase, supporters started reaching out to the Japanese market.
From August 13, 2013 to September 12, 2013, Operation Moonfall released a Kickstarter project in which the organizers sent posters to Nintendo. The project reached 244 backers and raised $17,670.

- "So, we are now at the stage of wanting to spread Operation Moonfall to an untapped market. We're talking, of course, about the Japanese market, which is essentially not even aware that Operation Moonfall exists. Consider this Phase 2, where we look to spread our cause further into the heart of the fan base." — Nathanial Rumphol-Janc, Operation Moonfall Phase 2 Needs Help, Spreading to the Japanese Market - Phase 3 to Launch September 1st, Zelda Informer, published August 16, 2011.
