Nintendo isn’t done with the N64 just yet. More retro titles are coming to the level of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack.
Nintendo of America has confirmed that the Nintendo Switch is indeed getting more N64 games as part of its Expansion Pack premium tier. Despite tweet announcing the news (opens in new tab) kept quiet about what those games will be. Of course, that didn’t stop fans from flooding the responses with suggestions and requests.
The tweet comes shortly after the release of Pokémon Puzzle League on Nintendo Switch Online’s N64 Collection. The underrated ‘match 3’ puzzler is the first N64 game to come to Switch outside of the initially announced list. As such, many fans believed that a second wave was heading to the N64’s game lineup. That seems to be pretty much confirmed now, thanks to Nintendo of America’s tweet.

Which N64 games should make the cut?
The N64 is not lacking for excellent retro gaming. And there are a ton of fan favorites that could make their way to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack service.
I’m immediately thinking of notable current absences like 1080 Snowboarding, Super Smash Bros. and Wave Race 64. Third-party hits like WWF No Mercy and Star Wars Rogue Squadron wouldn’t be wrong either.
And as we’ve seen with the release of Banjo-Kazooie, Microsoft seems willing to cooperate with Nintendo to bring Rare classics to Nintendo Switch Online. If that’s still the case, we’d love to see games like Perfect Dark, Diddy Kong Racing, and Jet Force Gemini come to the service.
The N64 was also home to an abundance of cult classics. And with the presence of WinBack on Nintendo Switch Online, we know that Nintendo is not averse to blessing its programming with games that fall into this category.
In that case, I’d love to see games like Mischief Makers, Space Station Silicon Valley, and Mystical Ninja make their way to the online service. There’s a lot for Nintendo to choose from, then. I just hope you’re willing to add some surprises along with more popular games as the lineup expands throughout the year.
