Zelda: Majora’s Mask is the next N64 game for Switch Online + Expansion Pack – Gaming – News – Archyde

The next game coming to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack is The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask from 2000. The N64 game was the sequel to Ocarina of Time and generally has a more mature tone than its predecessor.

Nintendo makes on twitter announced that Majora’s Mask was the next game, but didn’t give another release date other than “February”. A pattern in the frequency of releases for the service has yet to emerge, but so far there have been two N64 games added since the service launched in October: These were Paper Mario 64 in December and Banjo-Kazooie in January. So the pattern seems to be going down to one N64 game per month. Five Sega Mega Drive games were also added in December.

Predecessors Ocarina of Time and other N64 games on Switch had to deal with this technical euvels, such as input lag and framerate issues. Nintendo seems behind the scenes work about these problems, but at the same time it is reported that they are not yet completely eliminated. It therefore seems possible that Majora’s Mask is not emulated correctly.

In addition to the N64, the game was also previously released on the GameCube. A remake of it was also released for the Nintendo 3DS, with stereoscopic view, custom boss fights and an additional fishing mini-game.

The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack costs €39.99 per year and includes the standard Nintendo Switch Online service worth €19.99 per year. With Family subscriptions, the total price increases a little further, but that also offers a maximum of eight accounts.
