Majora’s Mask is coming next month to Switch Online

Nintendo is just coming to announce the exit of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on Nintendo 64 catalog of the subscription Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack. After welcoming Paper Mario last month, another cult title from the 64-bit console arrived on Nintendo’s mobile console subscription; and a selection of choices, to boot.

Link in Termina phase

Is there still need to present The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask ? In the large community of fans of the franchise, this second Nintendo 64 installment is pulling the punches with its predecessor Ocarina of Time for the coveted title of “best Zelda of all time”; a purist match which we will avoid taking sides. The followers of Majora, however, have important arguments in their favor: it is one of the most unique episodes of the saga, as much in terms of atmosphere and artistic direction as of gameplay.

With its famous three-day system and time travel, Majora’s Mask is also known for introducing the antagonist Skull Kid—and all the mysteries surrounding him. All that remains is to cross your fingers for a better quality emulation compared to the other games in the catalog. No specific release day has been announced, but we should probably expect its arrival in the second half of next month, which would coincide with the monthly release rate of titles on the Nintendo 64 catalog.

The Switch is rare

Still in the news of Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack, another Nintendo 64 title will join the catalog today: it is Banjo-Kazooie, the cult platformer from Rareware studio. Its announcement over the past month had raised several questions, and for good reason—Rare being currently under the fold of Microsoft, its Switch release could open the doors to other games from the studio like Perfect Dark, or who knows, goldeneye 007… Hope gives life.
