The past two months for Nintendo Switch Online might possibly be the most active the service has been since its welcoming of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack back in November last fall. At the start of March, we saw the addition of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask followed by F-Zero X for Nintendo 64 virtual library. But, there is still more.

Later in March, the service welcomed a new helping of titles for the Sega Genesis virtual library as well. Not to mention the first wave for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Pass which is instantly available for Expansion Pack subscribers. Additionally, Nintendo 64 even introduced Mario Golf later on in April to expand the virtual library.

Now this past weekend, Nintendo featured a new list of titles to the service, including: Shining Force II, Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball, and Space Harrier II. You can watch the new trailer in the video below:

Despite the emphasis on Nintendo 64 – namely due to Nintendo running the service – Sega Genesis has received an impressive amount of attention as well. Previously, titles such as Altered Beast, Dynamite Headdy, Sword of Vermilion, Thunder Force II, and ToeJam & Earl were added in December 2021 not too long after the virtual library debuted for Nintendo Switch Online.

More recently, a new rumor spruced suggesting Nintendo is planning to welcome Game Boy & Game Boy Advanced titles to Nintendo Switch Online. The report further suggests that the firm is even utilizing some emulators that it previously entered court for against users that played roms on in the past. You can read the full report by heading here.
