International Business Times

Nintendo Switch has revealed the release date of "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask" along with a new trailer in celebration of its official rollout. Japanese gaming giant Nintendo announced last month that "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask" is scheduled to launch in its hybrid console as part of the Switch Online expansion pass service. The announcement hyped fans but it did not come with a definitive release date. Nintendo announced Friday that "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask" is coming as one of its N64 games on its premium online service on Feb. 25. As part of the announcement, the Japanese gaming giant has also released a new trailer for the game. It's a race to stop the moon and save the world!

'The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask' joins Switch Online next week


Nintendo is adding The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask to the Switch Online Expansion Pack lineup on February 25th. The classic title was first released for the Nintendo 64 in 2000, was the second Zelda game to feature 3D graphics and became one of the best-selling games at the time. It also received critical acclaim for its gameplay, writing and visuals that showed an improvement from its predecessor, Ocarina of Time. Majora's Mask picks up from where Ocarina of Time left off, with Link finding himself in a parallel world to Hyrule called Termina. There, he learns that the mask is being used to summon the moon and destroy the world within three days. Link is dragged into the world of Termina, where the moon is falling from the sky!

'Majora's Mask' is coming to Nintendo Switch and there's a nostalgic trailer


The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is landing on Nintendo Switch on Feb. 25 and the gaming giant released a nostalgic trailer for the occasion. The sequel to the beloved Nintendo 64 classic Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask was released in April 2000, and though it wasn't as commercially popular at the time, it gained a serious cult following, becoming more of a fan favourite. The darker game picks up months later and follows our hero Link in his quest to save the world from the moon which is falling (inspo?) and get out of the strange parallel world of Termina and back to Hyrule. Use the iconic ocarina to manipulate time, solve dungeon puzzles, and transform into characters like Deku Link and Zora Link through the use of 24 different masks, and you've got yourself the adventure of your Saturday morning dreams. Majora's Mask will be available for those with Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack membership, and it might just be the nostalgia trip that makes me actually want to get one of those.
