Tons More N64 Classics Found In Nintendo Switch Datamine

Tons More N64 Classics Found In Nintendo Switch Datamine

To be able to play these games on the Switch is an awesome feeling.

The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack opens up an enviable collection of classic Nintendo 64 and SEGA Mega Drive games on the portable platform. Now, this new leak seems to suggest that there’s even more titles on their way to the service. 

At the moment, you’re able to play Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Mario Tennis and a cluster of other N64 games thanks to the subscription service. On the other hand, if you had a Mega Drive in your house, there’s Ecco the Dolphin, Shining Force, Castlevania Bloodline and more that are good to go on the Switch, which is an awesome thing to say in 2021. Majora’s Mask, Banjo-Kazooie and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards are on the cards to be added to Nintendo Switch Online in the future, yet one canny fan has dug into the N64 app to find out what else is waiting in the wings. 

Feast your eyes on the OLED Model of the Nintendo Switch, which was released earlier this year and was a hit with our Mike Diver!

Twitter user @Mondo_Mega posted the alphabetical lists of the N64 and Mega Drive games that have been confirmed with their game IDs. Interspersed between these white rows with the information are grey rows that seem to suggest that they will eventually be completed with new arrivals on the service. So, if this discovery is verifiable, then this list shows that 38 Nintendo 64 games will come to Nintendo Switch Online, along with 52 games for fans of the Mega Drive. That’s very Mega stuff.

Of course, this datamine doesn’t actually state what is on its way to the subscription service. No, that would be much too easy. Though, these omissions have seen players let their imaginations loose on what games they’d love to see pop up on Switch, like Wipeout 64, the Mario Party series, Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, and even GoldenEye 007. The latter would be an absolutely amazing addition, but it would require some lengthy conversations with Microsoft and IO Interactive for the license.
