During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, an Expansion Pass for Nintendo Switch Online was revealed, which will allow subscribers to play games originally released on the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis. Nintendo 64 games had been rumored for the platform for months, but the Genesis games came as a pretty big surprise! Either way, fans seem pretty excited about the possibility of playing so many classic games on Nintendo’s handheld hybrid, and many took to social media to share their excitement.

So glad I got a Nintendo Switch when I did. After reading about the announcement of n64 games coming to the Switch online service soon. It’s got me a bit hyped about how the gaming and speedrunning community are going to be impacted by this forever.

Some are less optimistic about the future, though.
we KNOW that by this time next year the N64 games on Nintendo Switch Online+ will be stuff like Glover and Paperboy 64
