Nintendo, during its most recent Direct, announced that some Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games coming to the Nintendo Switch. About the first console there were already rumors on the internet after a recent registration with the Federal Communications Commission of the United States (FCC).
While those in Kyoto have been giving away classic titles through Nintendo Switch Online, none of them belonged to the aforementioned consoles. Since its launch, the service was focused on NES and SNES. Surprising, of course, the presence of the legendary Sega platform.
Of course, it is important to mention that the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games will be available through the Expansion Pack, an additional content for Nintendo Switch Online. Evidently, the wallet will have to be opened, and this additional payment will be reflected in the subscription of the interested parties. The funny thing is that the company did not disclose prices, as they are still studying the appropriate figure for consumers – and for them, of course.
Analyzing the list of both Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis, fortunately included titles that marked many players. Of course, some proposals are missing from each platform, although Nintendo promises to continue expanding the collection over time; later will come The Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask, Banjo Kazooie and Mario Golf. On the internet they have already raised their voices for GoldenEye 007, despite the fact that this license is not under the control of those in Kyoto.
This is the complete list of titles that you can enjoy at the launch of the Expansion Pack:

When will the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games be available on Nintendo Switch Online? From October, but the specific date is still pending confirmation, as are the prices. Surely in a few weeks we will know the rest of the details.
