UPDATE 18/02/22: Majora's Mask will hit Switch Online on 25th February.
Nintendo announced the news with a new trailer for the N64 classic.
It's fitting timing what with the prevalence of loop games at the moment: Majora's Mask sees Link repeating a three day cycle to stop the moon from destroying the world of Termina.

ORIGINAL STORY 21/01/22: Nintendo has confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask will be the next N64 game to hit Nintendo Online.
The game will be available in February for Switch owners with the Nintendo Online Expansion Pack, though no release date has been given.
Majora's Mask is the follow up to Ocarina of Time - which is already available on the system - and follows Link as he adventures to Termina where the Moon is on a crash course with the world.

A darker, more twisted take on familiar characters, the game focuses on collecting masks to morph and gain new abilities. It also introduced the world to loveable fairy man Tingle. A remake was released for the 3DS back in 2015.
We'll update this story with the release date for Majora's Mask once announced.
