It’s already a crowded month for games, but even Horizon Forbidden West can’t keep Link away. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask will be re-released on Nintendo Switch Online on February 25. Those who recognise that date will note that it’s the same as the release date for Elden Ring, a game that won’t be coming to Switch.
Even though Majora’s Mask bears some resemblance to other games in the Legend of Zelda series, its structure is quite different. An evil moon threatens to destroy the world for three days, and Link must figure out a way to stop it.
Since its release on the Nintendo 64 in 2000, Majora’s Mask has been re-released on numerous platforms, including the GameCube and the Wii. As of 2015, the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, has been released. In contrast, the Nintendo Switch Online version is going to be a re-release of the N64 original.
