In a shocking announcement, Nintendo confirms that classic Nintendo 64 games are coming to Nintendo Switch Online via its expansion pack.
One of the main selling points of the Nintendo Switch online service is the ability to play a selection of classic NES and Super Nintendo games. For years, rumors have persisted that Nintendo will also be expanding the Nintendo Switch Online service with Nintendo 64 titles. And now Nintendo has officially confirmed those plans. A more expensive Nintendo Switch Online membership arrives at the end of October, and it brings with it some of the best Nintendo 64 games ever made.
Nintendo calls this more expensive Switch Online service the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, with a specific release date and pricing information coming at a later date. When the service launches in October, it will include nine Nintendo 64 games for players to experience, along with online multiplayer support and other perks. Here are the nine Nintendo 64 games coming to Nintendo Switch Online in October.

Needless to say, this is quite the Nintendo 64 title lineup, but it’s worth pointing out that these aren’t the only Nintendo 64 games coming to Switch Online. Nintendo has confirmed that it will add more Nintendo 64 games to the service at later dates, specifically naming The Legend of Zelda: The Mask of Majora, Mario golf, PokÃ©mon Snap, F-Zero X, Kirby 64: Crystal Shards, Paper mario, and even the Xbox Banjo-Kazooie.
Nintendo Switch players will be able to experience these classic games using their Switch Joy-Cons and Pro controllers, but they will also be able to play them with a special Nintendo 64 Switch controller which will be sold to Switch Online subscribers for 49, $ 99. Presumably, this Nintendo 64 Switch controller was the new controller that recently leaked online. More information on its version should be released shortly.
Speaking of controllers, Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will also be able to purchase a special Sega Genesis controller for their console to go along with the announced new Sega Genesis games. Not only are classic Nintendo 64 games coming to Switch Online as part of the expansion pack, but Genesis titles are also making their way to the service. While pricing information for the Switch Online Expansion Pack has yet to be revealed, it definitely seems to be giving subscribers their money’s worth.
