Nintendo revealed the full launch line-up for N64 games in the upcoming Expansion Pack for Nintendo Switch Online, as well as future titles.
Nintendo announced during the September 2021 Direct that N64 and Sega Genesis games are coming to Nintendo Switch Online in October. They will be added as part of the Expansion Pack, which is an upcoming paid addition for Nintendo Switch Online that will allow existing members to upgrade.
There were rumors regarding N64 games coming to Nintendo Switch Online, thanks to a mysterious controller patent filed with the FCC, which was due to be unveiled on September 24, 2021. Fans were also expecting Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles to come to Nintendo Switch Online, but Nintendo threw a curveball and announced that Sega Genesis/Mega Drive titles were coming instead. The N64 games will support four-player local co-op, as well as online multiplayer for its games. The theoretical three-armed humans of the world can also safely come out from hiding, as Nintendo is releasing wireless versions of the N64 controller which can be purchased by Nintendo Switch Online members.
Nintendo revealed the launch line-up of N64 video game titles for the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, and the selection doesn’t disappoint. For many fans there were likely some titles that had to be on there, and first-party Nintendo 64 games have turned out in force. There are a few missing games, but Nintendo also confirmed that more titles will be added to Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pack in the future. For now, what follows are all of the N64 games currently confirmed for the Expansion Pack.
N64 Games In The Switch Online Expansion Pack At Launch
Nintendo has confirmed that the N64 games that will be coming to the Expansion Pack at launch are:
- Super Mario 64
- Mario Kart 64
- Star Fox 64
- Yoshi’s Story
- Sin and Punishment
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
- Mario Tennis

N64 Games Coming To Switch Online Expansion Pack
Nintendo also confirmed that some games will be coming to the Expansion Pack in the future. These upcoming N64 games on Switch include:
- The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
- F-Zero X, Mario Golf
- Pokémon Snap
- Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
- Paper Mario
It’s unclear exactly how often new games will be coming to Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pack, but if the trickle of games that were added to the NES and SNES games on the service are any indication, it could be a while before all of them are added to the library. It’s also unclear if more N64 games are coming to Switch outside of the ones that are already announced. If Banjo-Kazooie is coming to Nintendo Switch Online, then perhaps its sequel and Donkey King 64 may not be far behind.
Nintendo 64 games are coming to Nintendo Switch Online in late October.
