On the same day as the classic platformer Banjo-Kazooie was released on Nintendo Online, Nintendo revealed the next in line to be available on the cloud gaming subscription service: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. The game will be available to all those who are subscribed to the Nintendo Online + Expansion Pack service, which grants access to not only online services but to a library of classic Sega Genesis and N64 games.
Save Termina before it’s met with a terrible fate!

We knew that Majora’s Mask would be coming eventually as it was revealed alongside other games like Pokémon Snap, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and Mario Golf. But we didn’t know when they would be arriving, or in what order. Nintendo seems to be keeping this a secret until shortly before each release date, as has been their pattern with their announcements of Paper Mario and Banjo-Kazooie.
In 2015 we got an awesome 3DS remake of Majora’s Mask, which totally revamped the graphics and added plenty of changes that improve the game. But sometimes, we just want to play the original N64 classic. We don’t know exactly when in February Majora’s Mask will be hitting the cloud, but we can’t wait to travel back in time to save Termina all over again.
