For those of you who are subscribing to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service… you’re in luck! Alongside the announcement of Banjo-Kazooie hitting the enhanced service this week for members, they also revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was scheduled to be added to the Nintendo 64 library for February 2022. That’s a nice one-two punch of classic N64 love right there.
See the announcement from Nintendo below.
Banjo and Kazooie and ? Link?! No matter what form your favorite heroes take, adventures both hilarious and perilous are ahead when Banjo-Kazooie and The Legend of Zelda: Majora?s Mask make their way to the Nintendo Switch system!
Launching today, experience a magical adventure with an unlikely duo when the Nintendo 64 game Banjo-Kazooie Beak Bombs its way onto Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 64 ? Nintendo Switch Online library ? available to everyone with a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership. Join a honey bear named Banjo and a breegull named Kazooie as they fly, swim and fire eggs across a multitude of wild locales on their mission to rescue Banjo?s sister Tooty from the wicked witch Gruntilda in this action game. Originally released in 1998, this marks the first time this title has appeared on a Nintendo system in over 20 years ? guh-huh!
In the Banjo-Kazooie game, you?ll venture forth with the titular (sometimes-squabbling) pair on a journey that will take you from the top of Spiral Mountain, along the shark-infested Treasure Trove Cove to the icy hazards of Freezeezy Peak and back. Luckily with Kazooie spending most of her time inside Banjo?s backpack, they?re like two heroes in one! With the two of them (and you, of course) working together, nothing can stand in your way. Play the original Banjo and Kazooie adventure with a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership today!
An ominous fate also awaits you next month ? unless you can avert it, that is ? when the Legend of Zelda: Majora?s Mask game makes its time-twisting debut on Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 64 ? Nintendo Switch Online library in February. In this Nintendo 64 classic, Link has just three days to save the world before the moon itself comes crashing down, destroying Termina and everyone inhabiting it.
