Nintendo has announced that one of its most beloved Zelda games, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, is coming to Nintendo Switch Online as part of the service’s Expansion Pack tier.
The company shared the news in an article coinciding with the launch of Banjo-Kazooie on the premium tier of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack yesterday, noting that Majora’s Mask would be added to the service’s classic games library sometime next month. A direct sequel that takes place two months after 1998’s The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask is notable for introducing new gameplay elements such as a repeating three-day cycle and various masks that can be equipped to transform Link into different beings.
“An ominous fate also awaits you next month – unless you can avert it, that is – when the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask game makes its time-twisting debut on Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online library in February,” Nintendo confirmed.
“In this Nintendo 64 classic, Link has just three days to save the world before the moon itself comes crashing down, destroying Termina and everyone inhabiting it.”
Introduced in October 2021, Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack improves upon the standard membership with an expanded collection of classic games from the N64 and Sega Genesis eras. Individual and Family annual membership plans for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack cost $49.99 and $79.99, respectively.
