The Nintendo subscription service, Nintendo Switch Online, currently offers many retro titles as well as online content unlock for many Switch titles. But after today s Nintendo Direct, this offer is about to become a little softer – NSO is about to see new nostalgic additions. The Nintendo 64 games arrive on the Switch Online service, with the Sega Genesis games in trailer via an Expansion Pack.
The list of added games is long and contains all the usual suspects: Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Star Fox 64 and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, to name a few. They also unveiled a selection of games coming out soon on Nintendo Switch Online, including Majora s Mask, F-Zero X, Pokemon Snap and Banjo Kazooie.
In addition to all this, wireless Bluetooth replications of the N64 and Genesis original controllers will be available, if players really want to discover what the game was looked like at the time. They will have a price of $ 50 each, and none has an official release date for the moment.
This version celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Nintendo 64 console – a return to the era of Nintendo products with emblematic games and an unforgettable joystick. Many speculated on an exit like this, partly thanks to some particularly diligent fans who noticed that a new controller was under development. Given how close to an important date in Nintendo s history, and since they did something similar with previous retro versions… it was not difficult to put two and two together.
The addition of Sega games in this ad is unusual for NSO, but it does not make it Malvenu. Given the modern landscape, it is difficult to imagine that Nintendo and Sega were formerly two titans in a constant struggle for the dominance of the game space. It was a battle that Nintendo has clearly won, but given The massive overlap between fans of one or the other company, it is easy to understand why they are in such friendly terms today. This new version more than the N64, it s a reminder to a different time of the game – a time at which players can play on both sides once they have put their hands on all the goodies it contains.
