Although Nintendo was conservative on its announcements for Nintendo Switch Online for nearly two years, the firm cannot stay quiet for its newest tier – Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. The new version features Nintendo 64 & Sega Genesis games. Since the announcement, we welcomed titles such Paper Mario in 2021.
However, 2022 has been busy for active subscribers as well. Additional entries includes Banjo-Kazooie, and the most recent addition being The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Not to mention the handful of Sega Genesis titles: Altered Beast, Dynamite Headdy, Sword of Vermilion, Thunder Force II, and ToeJam & Earl.
This week, Nintendo announced Friday will welcome yet another fan-favorite to the service. In that, F-Zero X is coming to the Nintendo 64 virtual library. You can watch the announcement trailer in the video below:
“Compete with racers from every corner of the galaxy when the Nintendo 64 game F-Zero X double-tap dives onto Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online library,” the description from the press release reads. “Pull up to the starting line in 30 customizable machines for a futuristic blast from the past. Feeling competitive? You can challenge up to three friends in VS Battle, locally or online, at speeds so fast even Captain Falcon will be put through the paces.”
Noted, the regular tier for Nintendo Switch Online also welcomed a classic SNES game to its virtual library. Earthbound was added to the respected virtual library. Not only that but Earthbound Beginnings also made its addition as well to the library. You can read the full report by heading here.
