Unlike Ocarina of Time , Majora's Mask requires the use of the Expansion Pak , allowing for a higher polygon count, resulting in improved graphics. Although well-received by critics -- who praised its graphical improvements and a more original story compared to its direct predecessor -- it was commonly remarked that the game's darker atmosphere and time-based gameplay would have less general appeal than Ocarina of Time ; indeed, Majora's Mask never outsold it.

After 1982, the band stopped concert touring and became a studio-based project centred on Partridge, Moulding, and guitarist Dave Gregory . They produced increasingly idiosyncratic recordings, including The Big Express (1984), Skylarking (1986), Oranges & Lemons (1989), Nonsuch (1992) and Apple Venus Volume 1 (1999). A spin-off group, the Dukes of Stratosphear , was invented as a one-off excursion into 1960s-style psychedelia , but as XTC's music evolved, the distinctions between the two bands lessened. From 1993 to 1997, the group were mired in legal difficulties and refused to record music for Virgin, citing a poor record contract . In 2006, Partridge announced that his creative partnership with Moulding had disintegrated, leaving XTC "in the past tense." In 2017, Moulding and Chambers reunited as the duo TC&I . Partridge and Gregory remain musically active.
