Majora's Mask is coming to the Nintendo Switch via Nintendo Online, and very soon at that.
Nintendo has long been looking to bolster its Nintendo Online service, and it's doing that by giving us classics. It started with NES and SNES games, and soon included Game Boy games and N64 classics. Now, one of the N64's biggest is making its way to the Switch: Majora's Mask.

Majora's Mask and its expansion are coming to the Nintendo Switch on February 25. You'll need Nintendo Online to enjoy the game, but that's an easy decision, because it's definitely worth it, since it offers you much more than just Majora's Mask.
If you're not familiar with Majora's Mask, it's the follow-up to Ocarina of Time, and if people don't consider the latter to be the best Zelda game of all time, then it's usually Majora's Mask taking the cake. The game is a bit darker than other Zelda games, and offers a bit of a twisted take on the characters, as you collect masks to morph and gain abilities. Ultimately, you experience a time loop with Link on your quest to save the world from the moon, which is on a direct crash course.
Honestly, this is a fitting time to release Majora's Mask, because loop games are all the hype right now. If you haven't played Majora's Mask yet, then needless to say: You need to catch up.
