More Nintendo 64 games will be coming to the Switch as part of the Nintendo Switch Online service.
Nintendo have slowly been adding more Nintendo 64 games onto the Switch through the Expansion Pack for the Nintendo Switch Online membership service. Iconic titles like Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Banjo-Kazooie have been brought back onto the service. Now, even more games have been confirmed for the service in 2022 and 2023.
This year, players can expect to get their hands on Pilotwings 64, Mario Party and Mario Party 2. In 2023, we can look forward to Mario Party 3, Pokemon Stadium, Pokemon Stadium 2, Excitebike 64 and 1080 Snowboarding.
Fans of Mario Party are eating particularly well, it seems. All three of the classic Mario Party games on Nintendo 64 are coming soon. It comes after the release of Mario Party Superstars last year, which brought back classic minigames and boards from those games.
Pokemon Stadium was a somewhat unexpected arrival. Some people wondered how Nintendo would approach the game on Switch due to the lack of transfer pak support. It seems the games will be mostly faithful regardless of this issue.
And for a final surprise, Nintendo showed off GoldenEye 007, which is finally being ported. There have been countless rumours about GoldenEye coming back recently. We finally have confirmation that it’s coming to the service next year, in addition to releasing on Xbox.
The Nintendo Switch version of the game will have online multiplayer. The Xbox one is a different version, with different features like remastered graphics and controls. The Nintendo Switch version is more of a direct port with the online multiplayer component.
There are still some classic N64 games left to go, though. Banjo-Tooie, Super Smash Bros and Diddy Kong Racing, for example. Will Nintendo continue to add even more games?
