The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is back, this time on Nintendo Switch Online. The game that followed Ocarina of Time will be available for Switch players in February, with no specific date yet.
A new Zelda is coming to Nintendo Switch Online
This Zelda episode debuted in 2000 on Nintendo 64. There are several re-releases on GameCube, Wii Virtual Console and Wii U Virtual Console, as well as a Nintendo 3DS remake. In the case of Nintendo Switch Online, this will be the base edition of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, the one that was born on Nintendo 64 22 years ago now.
Players were a bit surprised by this episode upon its release. It is different fromOcarina of Time, especially because there’s an endlessly repeating three-day cycle of time and the use of masks that allow Link to transform. There’s the Goron, Zora, and Plague Deku mask. There are also other masks to improve Link’s performance. For example, the rabbit mask allows the protagonist to run faster.
Time is running out to prevent the apocalypse in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, which will join the Nintendo 64 catalog of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service in February!
