Nintendo 64 games are finally coming to the Nintendo Switch, leaving all fans looking forward to their addition. Not only that but there's additional good news, too! It's not just Nintendo 64 games that are being added to the Switch, but Sega Genesis games too. Just as the rumors going around have been saying, Nintendo 64 and Genesis games are joining Nintendo's online subscription. And if that wasn't awesome enough, Nintendo is also releasing some special controllers to play the games with their original control schemes. Wireless Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis are being released, though other details are scarce. Think about how awesome that is! You'll be able to play Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games on your current-gen Nintendo console... with their original controllers!
There aren't a ton of games that will be available when the service launches, but the games joining the service are some of the best. We're talking obvious ones like Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64, and Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Nintendo promised during Thursday's Nintendo Direct that they're adding more games later on. They specifically mentioned wanting to bring up Majora's Mask to the service with the next update! These are not only some of the best Nintendo 64 games, but some of the best video games of all time.
Now, here is the one and only downside. These games aren't going to be included in the already existing Nintendo Online subscription. More details will come later on, but for now, we don't know what the price will look like. It sounds like this service will be something you can add to your existing Nintendo Online subscription. Hopefully, Nintendo doesn't make it too expensive. After all, one of the big selling points of Nintendo Online is the fact that it isn't very expensive. It would be a shame for Nintendo to ruin that.
I guess I have one last piece of sad news to share. We don't know exactly when this service will launch, either. We'll know more when Nintendo is ready to tell us, which hopefully isn't very long from now. Until then I'll just spend every day dreaming about playing Ocarina of Time for the fiftieth time. And until the day I die, I'll maintain that it's a better game than Majora's Mask. Don't @ me.
