N64 Classic

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is coming to Nintendo Switch Online

Gamers will meet a terrible fate next month when one of the classic Nintendo 64 titles arrives at the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pass service.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is coming to Nintendo Switch Online

Nintendo has announced that the Nintendo Switch Online catalog will grow in February, with the upcoming arrival of Nintendo 64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask as part of the service's Expansion Pass.

Announced through Nintendo of America's official Twitter account, it was revealed that Majora's Mask will arrive in February, although no specific release date was given. The title will be part of the premium online service that launched late last year.

For those who don't know Majora's Mask, the title is a sequel to Ocarina of Time, and is one of the darkest titles in the entire franchise. In Majora's Mask, Link is taken to Termina, a strange place that he has to save in just three days before a huge moon falls on this new land. The game was initially released on the Nintendo 64 in the year 2000. It was later part of the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console games, then remastered for the Nintendo 3DS.

Recently, Nintendo released another Nintendo 64 classic, Banjo-Kazooie. This platform title was quite a surprise, considering that its developer, Rare, is owned by Microsoft Studios.
