It’s official: you can mark February 25 in your calendar as a day to spend hours fighting enemies and solving puzzles in a twisted fantasy world. What? Elden Ring† No, I’m talking about The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Nintendo has confirmed that the cult classic Zelda game will be added to Nintendo Switch Online’s N64 library next week.
Majora’s mask was released in 2000 and is similar in appearance to its predecessor, the groundbreaking Ocarina of Time. However, it’s a darker and very different game, built around a three-day repeating cycle in which Link must figure out how to save the world from the moon’s impending destruction. A remake for the 3DS called The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3Dwas released in 2015.
Nintendo 64 games are available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers who pay for the service’s new $49.99 per year expansion pack. The expansion pack also includes a selection of Sega Genesis games and additional content for Animal Crossing: New Horizonsas well as upcoming DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe† Majora’s mask is the twelfth N64 game to be added to the library; future confirmed titles include: pokemon snap† Mario Golf† Kirby 64: The Crystal Shardsand F-Zero X†
