Nintendo 64 and SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis Games Coming to Switch
During the September Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, which will feature Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis games.
The new Expansion Pack will be an additional cost on top of Nintendo Switch Online. Therefore, you will have to own Nintendo Switch Online before you can purchase the Expansion Pack. The expansion will arrive in late October, and select titles — like Mario Kart 64 — will offer online multiplayer for the first time ever. The complete list of classic games that will launch with the expanded service is as follows:
Launch Lineup of Nintendo 64 Games
Super Mario 64
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Mario Kart 64
Star Fox 64
Sin and Punishment

Nintendo Switch Online members can also pre-order two new controllers at a later date. These controllers are spitting images of the original Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis controllers and can be used to play these classic games on Nintendo Switch Online. Nintendo will reveal more details at a later date.
