Nintendo Direct (THE NINTENDO 64 IS REBORN!)

Nintendo Direct (THE NINTENDO 64 IS REBORN!)

The Low Grade Gamer on 24th Sep 2021

Excited for what has transpired from the latest Nintendo Direct would be an understatement. Nintendo has brought us Nintendo 64 gaming to the Nintendo Switch which is what we have been asking for since the launch of the switch. These games will be billed on top of the current Nintendo Switch Online pricing and will be called the Expansion Pack. It is coming in late October and the games available at launch will be:

  • Super Mario 64
  • Mario Kart 64
  • Star Fox 64
  • Yoshi's Story
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  • WinBack: Covert Operations
  • Dr. Mario 64
  • Sin and Punishment
  • Mario Tennis 64

In the future:

  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Pokemon Snap
  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
  • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
  • Mario Golf
  • Paper Mario
  • F-Zero X.

Not only do we get some N64 Classics but we will also have access to some Sega Classics.

  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Contra: Hard Corps
  • Dr. Robotnik‚Äôs Mean Bean Machine
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Golden Axe
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Phantasy Star IV
  • Ristar
  • Shining Force
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • M.U.S.H.A
  • Phantasy Star 4
  • Shinobi 3
  • Strider

You will also be able to buy wireless versions of these controllers just as you were able to buy them for the NES and SNES.

Nintendo is certainly adding more features to its console before and just after the release of its latest console the Switch OLED.

We are waiting in anticipation to see if anything else pops up unexpectedly.
