Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass has its fair share of detractors, and the criticisms that get levied at the subscription service are certainly not without merit. Nintendo, however, has been looking to increase the service’s value by adding more games to it on a regular basis, as promised when it was first unveiled.

The N64 side of things has added the original Paper Mario so far, and will soon be bringing Banjo-Kazooie into the fray as well- but before that, Nintendo is bolstering the Sega Genesis library on offer. Five new games have been added to the Sega Genesis library- sidescrolling beat ’em up Altered Beast, platformer Dynamite Headdy, action RPG Sword of Vermillion, sidescrolling shooter Thunder Force 2, and action game ToeJam and Earl.

Datamining leaks have suggested that both the N64 and Genesis libraries are going to add several more games in the coming weeks and months, so it doesn’t look like Nintendo is done with expanding the catalog of the subscription service just yet. Meanwhile, rumours have also insisted that Game Boy and Game Boy Color games are still eventually going to be added to the service as well.
