The rumors are true – Nintendo will be adding titles from the Nintendo 64 era to Nintendo Switch Online. This will be part of a new subscription plan called Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack but that’s not all. It will also include Sega Genesis titles like Sonic the Hedgehog, Contra: Hard Corps, Phantasy Star 4 and many other classics.
As for the Nintendo 64’s line-up, fans can look forward to Super Mario 64, WinBack, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and other titles coming at launch. Other titles will be added over time, including F-Zero X and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. The plan launches in late October and though pricing hasn’t been announced, current Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can upgrade to it.
If that weren’t enough, Nintendo is also releasing special Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis controllers to recapture the magic of playing these games. Both feature wireless functionality though again, pricing and availability dates haven’t been announced. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
