Majora’s Mask is coming to Nintendo Switch Online next week
Last month, we learned that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask would be the next game to hit the Nintendo Switch Online Game Library + Expansion Pack. Today it was announced that the Nintendo 64 game will be released on the service next week on February 25th.
Majora’s Mask, released in 2000, is the direct sequel to Ocarina of Time. The game was remastered for the 3DS in 2015, but the version coming to Nintendo Switch Online is the original N64 version.
If you’re not familiar with the game, here’s what it is:
Landing in the mystical world of Termina, Link must embark on an urgent quest to solve the mystery of the moon, save the world from destruction, and find his way back to the peaceful land of Hyrule in just three days! Use the power of the ocarina to manipulate time and plan your schedule while solving mind-boggling puzzles and dungeons!
You will need the expansion pack upgrade to the basic online subscription to play The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and other Nintendo 64 games on Switch. This upgraded subscription costs $49.99 per year for an individual subscription and $79.99 for a family plan for up to eight people.
It will be the third Nintendo 64 game to be added to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service since its launch last year, following Paper Mario in December and Banjo-Kazooie in January. It looks like new games will be added to this service about once a month. The last two times we learned what the next game will be shortly after the release of the previous one, so we can also discover the March game next week.
