Zelda: Majora’s Mask Cutscene On Switch Apparently “More Accurate To N64” Than Wii Virtual Console Emulation
Yesterday, Nintendo added another game to its Switch Online Expansion Pack and updated the N64 library to version 2.0.0.
All sorts of improvements have been made, but this latest update is even better than expected it seems. According to “Zelda 64 researcher” and Twitter user Picture (as the Nintendo data miner points out BuntingDome), emulation of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask in the Switch Online service actually “matches the N64 more closely” in one “situation” than the Wii Virtual Console version.
Attention! Spoilers for Majora’s Mask in the video below:
OatmealDome: “Majora’s Mask” is a situation where the Switch version is actually *better* than previous releases and more accurate on the N64 thanks to a patch added by Nintendo. It fixes a cutscene that runs too fast, causing it to end too soon. “
This is impressive, if true, as the Wii Virtual Console N64 library is still considered by many to be the “best” generation of Nintendo’s N64 emulator. You can read more about this in our previous post.
As OatmealDome further explains, the accuracy found in the Switch version of Majora’s Mask is good news for fans who have been asking for an experience more like the original Nintendo 64 release, but not so good for the speedrunner community as it technically takes longer. full runs.
You can see various other improvements in yesterday’s story. This is yet another example of the effort Nintendo is currently putting into this paid service to not only improve it but in this case make it even better than past N64 game emulations.
