The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is coming to Nintendo Switch this February

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is one of the most misunderstood installments in the franchise, but also one of the most interesting and engaging once you get the hang of it. Calm down the proposal, and from this month of February it will be available to console users who are subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online and the expansion pack.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is just one of the new features that the Nintendo console will receive this month. Others include Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, available from February 11, or Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection, scheduled for release next February 17th. However, it is the release of the old Zelda title that is more appealing.

Yes, Nintendo is going to continue doing the crappy thing and offering a version that barely adapts the original to the new reality in high definition of Switch, on an emulator that is worse than the ones you you can download it there, instead of making a port in conditions of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask that includes at least the remastering that was made of the game for Nintendo 3DS.

I mean, the same shit they did with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time; but it is one more incentive to pay for the Nintendo Switch Online expansion pack, with which the collection of titles available on the Sega Mega Drive and Nintendo 64 is increased… Which is also a shitty one, in this shoulder bag case, to which the Japanese company has accustomed us: 19.99 euros per year costs the current subscription, 39.99 euros with the expansion pack. So?

Well, it turns out that after the incredible success – a success rarely seen, as evidenced by awards and ratings like this, this, or this other, which is not just my thing – that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina had of Time on Nintendo 64, towards the end of the console’s life cycle, Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, a “sequel” that wasn’t such and that for what was said -the type of story it raises- it did not captivate the staff as the original installment did, but for being an unexpected title at that time, it has remained one of the favorite Zeldas of many precisely because of its atypical character and the elements it introduced.

Well, for this 2022 the “second part” of a marvel such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also expected and, let’s not fool ourselves: if there is, it’s due to the impressive success of the previous one. Ergo, maybe the stars align and we can enjoy a Breath of the Wild 2 as good as Majora’s Mask was. Who knows! With Super Mario Galaxy it seemed impossible and it happened. Whatever happens now, it will be an excuse to keep selling consoles, which is where the profit lies.

Did you get to play The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask back in the day, or later, in its version for Nintendo 3DS? What memory do you keep? We leave you with the trailer for the laptop, the original came out in 2000, so the game turns 2022, 22 years old. Let it not be said that this is not the time to recover it, even if it is in a bad way.
