Today sees the launch of the Expansion Pack for Nintendo Switch Online, an expansion to 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.
Opinions can be divided as to how good this deal is, but a whole slew of 16- and 64-bit classics will soon be playable on Switch, and – despite our wallet moans – the chance to play Banjo-Kazooie and F-Zero. X on modern hardware (both coming “soon” rather than dropping at launch) is certainly cause for celebration.
But where to start ? Well Nintendo Life readers have had their say already and have rated every NSO Nintendo 64 game and every NSO Sega Mega Drive game for quality. BUT with the small library of games available, maybe you just can’t wait to play something you do not have burned a thousand times before (hi, Sonic 2). Maybe you are intrigued to try Winback or dive into Phantasy Star IV for the first time?
Tell us below which launch games you’ll be kicking off your Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis Nintendo Switch online apps today (or, technically, tomorrow in Japan and Europe).
