Nintendo continues to delight fans with its ever-expanding library of classic games on the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service. Just recently, the company announced that Jet Force Gemini and GoldenEye 007 will be making their way to the service this December. But what lies ahead for N64 enthusiasts? Well, it seems that Nintendo’s Japanese website might have provided us with some clues.
On the official Japanese website, there is a section dedicated to “titles scheduled to be released in 2023”. Within this section, we find a list of four games. While we already know about Jet Force Gemini and GoldenEye 007, there are two more exciting titles on the horizon. One of them is the beloved 1080 Snowboarding, a game that many fans have been eagerly anticipating. The other title is Harvest Moon 64, which is set to launch in Japan before the end of 2023.
It’s important to note that the “last updated” date for this list was just a few days ago on November 22nd, 2023. However, Nintendo cautions that titles are added to the library “irregularly”, meaning that not all of the listed games may arrive before the end of next month. This unpredictability adds an element of excitement and keeps fans eagerly waiting for more surprises from Nintendo.
While the specific lineup beyond the current list remains a mystery, it’s clear that Nintendo is determined to keep expanding its N64 library on the Switch Online service. President Shuntaro Furukawa has repeatedly expressed the company’s desire to provide a compelling experience for its members. By continually adding new titles, Nintendo ensures that players have a reason to keep coming back to the service and reliving their favorite nostalgic moments.
Not only is Nintendo bringing these beloved classics to the Switch Online + Expansion Pack service, but they are also launching an exciting 18+ app in Japan to accompany the release of Jet Force Gemini and GoldenEye 007. This app will surely enhance the gaming experience for adult players and create a buzz around the nostalgia-filled titles.
As we eagerly await the arrival of Jet Force Gemini and GoldenEye 007, Nintendo has given us a glimpse into the future of the N64 library on Nintendo Switch Online. With the promise of more titles, including 1080 Snowboarding and Harvest Moon 64, fans can look forward to reliving their favorite gaming memories on the modern console. Nintendo’s commitment to expanding its content ensures that Switch Online members have a reason to keep coming back for more. So buckle up and get ready, because the N64 nostalgia train is just getting started!
