How fast is Time running in Majora’s Mask?

I’m just wondering if anybody knows which is the time equivalent from Majora’s Mask (N64) to real time?

If an in-game day is finished how much real time is spent?

I also remember, there was a way to slow down the in-game time speed.


According to Zeldawiki, the flow of time changes depending on various circumstances.

During the initial cycle, when you start a new game and need to get your Ocarina back:
27 seconds per hour. 10 minutes 48 second per day. 32 minutes 24 seconds total.

After the initial cycle:
45 seconds per hour. 18 minutes per day. 54 minutes total.

After playing the Inverted Song of Time (needs to be done every time you restart a cycle):
150 seconds per hour. 1 hour per day. 3 hours total.

Time does not flow in the following locations:

  • Lost Woods
  • Catacombs
  • Inside the Clock Tower
  • Boss room (immediately after defeating the Boss)
  • The Moon
