Nintendo Switch Online N64 And SEGA Genesis Games Coming Soon
After making a solid collection of retro NES and SNES games available to stream instantly from the cloud, Nintendo Switch Online is now preparing to add new depth to its classic console lineup with the addition of Nintendo 64 and the SEGA Genesis. Rolling out as the fittingly-titled Expansion Pack plan, members of Nintendo Switch Online will receive all the usual benefits of the service, in addition to a lineup of titles from the N64 and the SEGA’s Genesis.

N64 coming to Nintendo Switch Online is an amazing revelation as it backs up years of speculation and leaks regarding the fifth-generation console, with the third-party debut of the Genesis being somewhat of a surprise. At the time of announcement, little else was revealed regarding the new service expansion of Nintendo Switch Online. A release is expected sometime in “late October,” but more information about N64 and SEGA Genesis, a more solid release date, and pricing for the Expansion Pack plan were assured for “a later time.”
