Of course, the downside is that these games will be part of an “Expansion Pack” to your existing Nintendo Switch Online membership plan, but we’re still awaiting pricing in general.
The games confirmed for launch are:
Super Mario 64
Mario Kart 64
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Dr. Mario 64
Sin and Punishment
Coming to the service in the months post-launch include:
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
In addition to these Nintendo games, they also announced that a selection of Sega Genesis titles would also surprisingly be making their way onto the service. These games include:
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
Streets of Rage 2
Ecco the Dolphin
Phantasy Star IV
Contra: Hard Corps
As said, we’re waiting on local pricing on this “Expansion Pack” so expect updates on that in the near future as the service nears its October launch.
No doubt, more games will also be coming into the future, but we know based on the NES and Super Nintendo drops that Nintendo seems to drop one or two games a month once that first drop of games have landed, so no doubt it’ll be a slow burn of games. We also know that true-to-scale Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis controllers are also coming. They’ll be $49.99 USD but we don’t have a local price for these yet, so we’ll let you know once we do.
