This Will Be the 14th N64 Game on the Switch Service
One of the complaints about the Switch subscription expansion pack is the lack of N64 games on the pack. Thankfully, there’s a new game that will be added to the roster.
As it turns out, there will be a new addition to the Switch Subscription. For those who love the old favorites, especially those in the Mario universe, this may be a delightful treat.
On April 15, 2022, Nintendo will be adding Mario Golf to the Expansion Pack. Mario Golf was originally released in 1999 onto the N64 system and has been one of the Mario sports staples ever since. There have been later versions of Mario Golf on the Wii, and Wii U. The latest of the Mario Golf franchise was Mario Golf: Super Rush, in 2021 for the Nintendo Switch, marking it as the sixth golf installment for Mario.
Nintendo of America announced this newest addition to the Expansion Pack on Twitter on April 6, 2022. And while it is met with excitement (who doesn’t want to see a tiny golf club in Bowser’s hands?), it doesn’t come as a complete surprise. When the Expansion was first announced for the Switch, Mario Golf was on the docket. This could mean that we may see two other games that were also featured at this time. This could mean Pokemon Snap or Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards will be released soon in succession.
But this does not clarify what other games we may be seeing in this subscription service. While there are a variety of games that could come out, anything from, say, Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Party 2, or any other game that comes from the Mario universe.
And there may be a possibility, however slim, for the James Bond: GoldenEye to be joining the roster. This comes from all the changes that have been happening with GoldenEye as of late, as their ban was recently overturned by Germany early- which means someone went through the effort to ensure it could be sold.
But until the word is confirmed, we only have some hopes and dreams for what may come on the Switch Expansion subscription service. Stay Tuned!
