Update: Nintendo took to its official Twitter feed late last night to unveil the February 25, 2022 Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask Online release date. You can check out the announcement trailer below.
The Zelda Majora’s Mask Switch Online release is coming next month. While it was unclear how often Nintendo would update the somewhat controversial Expansion Pack tier of its Switch Online game library, the announcements are starting to hit. After adding five new titles to the SEGA Genesis side of things back in December, earlier this week it announced Banjo-Kazooie would be making its triumphant return to Nintendo platforms as part of its more expensive Expansion Pack (now available with more details right here). Quickly following that launch, Nintendo took to its official Twitter account to reveal the next game coming to the service, the beloved Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask. More details below.
Zelda Majora’s Mask Switch Online release
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask originally debuted on Nintendo 64 back in 2000 as a follow-up to the iconic Ocarina of Time. The direct sequel changes up the typical Zelda format quite a bit all while reusing some assets from the beloved predecessor. Link finds himself in Termina, a sort of parallel world to Hyrule, as he battles against the clock to save its people.
But it won’t be long before you can experience the game on your Switch console, the Zelda Majora’s Mask Switch Online release is now set for next month:
While the aforementioned Ocarina of Time is already available as part of the Switch Online Expansion Pack N64 library, it did seem to suffer from some performance issues at launch. Some gamers felt that it was a far inferior port to those we have seen in the past, so let’s just hope Link and Termina don’t suffer the same fate.
No official launch date for the Zelda Majora’s Mask Switch Online release has been set just yet, but we do know it will be coming in February at some time.
Update: The February 25, 2022 release date has arrived along with the a new trailer:
It’s a race to stop the moon and save the world! The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask will become available for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members on February 25! Upon 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 ocarina’s power to manipulate time, and plan your schedule as you solve mind-boggling puzzles and dungeons!
Nintendo Switch Online standard starts at $20 per year, but subscriptions to the Expansion Pack will run you a cool $50, or as much as $80 for the family pack. You can learn more about how the new tier system works in our previous coverage.
