Nintendo Switch Online with Expansion Pack goes live with N64 and Genesis Games

Time to load into some retro games

The next level up of the Nintendo Switch Online service is now here, with the new Expansion Pack out now. All subscribes of the $50/year service get access to a whole range of exciting Sega Genesis and Nintendo 64 games, as well as Happy Home Paradise DLC when it releases on November 5th.

Big hits like Star Fox 64 and Mario Kart 64 are involved in the collection of games, and are joined by other not as known but still as fun games like Musha, the Genesis shooter, and Sin and Punishment. We have the full list of games right here to see what takes your liking, to see, if you aren’t already subscribed, if it makes a good option for you to do so.


  • Super Mario 64

  • Mario Kart 64

  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

  • Starfox 64

  • Yoshi's Story

  • WinBack

All in all, lots of fun games to keep you entertained for ages. The subscription, as shared, does come at $50/year, and the Switch Online + Expansion Pack offering is also available in a family plan for $80/year, which we see as a reasonable price considering all of the nostalgia that you’ll get to enjoy.

Nintendo also launched Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis controllers compatible with the new expansion and content which were for sale for $50 each, but they sold out, as expected, very quickly. So, will you be getting on any of these games? Let us know in the comments below!
