The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask joins the ever-growing list of N64 games available to members of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, and follows additions such as Banjo-Kazooie and Paper Mario.
In our list of the 25 best Nintendo 64 games of all time, we ranked The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask #3, placing it just behind Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time.
“It all sounds pretty dark, but the great sense of adventure and clever puzzles expected in a Zelda game are intact, and Majora’s adds the thrill of finding new masks with new abilities, making Majora’s Mask perfectly fun and rewarding.” , IGN’s Casey De Freitas wrote. “Ocarina of Time is undeniably a classic masterpiece, Majora’s Mask adds a spooky little twist that makes it unique, memorable and something truly special in its own right.”
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was released on N64 in 2000 and we gave it a 9.9/10, and it’s the version that will be part of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.
In 2015, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D was released for Nintendo 3DS and came with some quality of life additions like The Bomber’s Notebook which helped players keep track of everything happening in the game.
