N64 And Sega Genesis Games Heading to Switch Online In October

Nin­ten­do revealed that some N64 and Sega Gen­e­sis (no, that was not a typo) titles are com­ing to Nin­ten­do Switch Online in lat­er Octo­ber. How­ev­er, these new addi­tions will cost play­ers a bit more mon­ey to, since they won’t be includ­ed with the cur­rent Switch Online mem­ber­ship. Instead, they will shuf­fled into a new tier called Nin­ten­do Switch Online + Expan­sion Pack. Cur­rent sub­scribers can upgrade to this new plan, but Nin­ten­do did not divulge how much this tier will cost.

Nin­ten­do will also be releas­ing a wire­less N64 and Gen­e­sis con­troller for $50each. They are sim­i­lar to NES and SNES con­trollers and will only be avail­able to pur­chase if you’re a Switch Online sub­scriber. Cer­tain games in the new col­lec­tions will be online-enabled. That includes titles like Mario Kart–but you can still play that game with up to three oth­er players.

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
