The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Is Coming to Nintendo Switch Online Next Month


Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask will be the next game to feature as part of Nintendo Switch Online’s expansion pass service.

As detailed on Twitter, Nintendo has stated that Majora’s Mask will be the next N64 game to launch on its premium online service.The game is set to launch in February, but a specific release date has not yet been given.

Nintendo just recently launched this month’s expansion pass title in the form of Banjo-Kazooie. The colorful platformer sees players take control of Banjo (a bear) and his loveable feathered friend Kazooie as they attempt to thwart the evil escapades of a witch named Gruntilda.

Majora’s Mask isn’t the first N64 Zelda game to have been ported over to the Switch Online Service. Last year, Nintendo added The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time to the collection, though the game suffered performance issues at launch. At the time, one player went as far as to claim that the game was actually worse than the one featured on the Wii U’s virtual console. Hopefully, Majora’s Mask will arrive in a more agreeable state.

For those who might not have played the N64 classic, Majora’s Mask plays out differently from other games from within the franchise. In Majora’s Mask, Link is tasked with saving the land of Termina and has just three days to do so before the moon comes plummeting down into the world. Darker thematically than other Zelda games, Mask initially launched for the N64 in the year 2000, where we awarded it a 9.9/10 review. A 3D remaster was subsequently launched for 3DS in 2015.
