Today sees the launch of the Expansion Pack for Nintendo Switch Online, an extension of the current subscription service that adds a library of Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis / Mega Drive titles, as well as the upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise DLC.
Opinion may be divided as to how good a deal this is, but a whole bunch of 16- and 64-bit classics will soon be conveniently playable on Switch, and — despite the groans from our wallet — the chance to play Banjo-Kazooie and F-Zero X on modern hardware (both of those admittedly coming ‘soon’ rather than dropping at launch) is certainly cause for celebration.
But where should we begin? Well, Nintendo Life readers have already had their say and ranked every NSO Nintendo 64 game and every NSO Sega Mega Drive game in terms of sheer quality. BUT with the small library of games available, perhaps you’re eager to play something you haven’t burned through a thousand times before (hi there, Sonic 2). Maybe you’re intrigued to try out Winback or dip into Phantasy Star IV for the first time?
Let us know below which of the launch games you’ll be inaugurating your Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis Nintendo Switch Online Apps with today (or, technically, tomorrow in Japan and Europe).
