9 more N64 games have been confirmed for Nintendo Switch
Mario Party, GoldenEye, Excitebike and more will be released within the next year
Nine more Nintendo 64 games have been confirmed for the Nintendo Switch Online service.
Pilotwings 64, Mario Party, Mario Party 2, Mario Party 3, Pokémon Stadium, Pokémon Stadium 2, 1080 Snowboarding, Excitebike 64 and GoldenEye 007 will be released within the next year, Nintendo said during a Nintendo Direct on Tuesday.
Pilotwings and the first two Mario Party titles will release before the end of the year, Nintendo said, while the six remaining games will arrive in 2023.
Both Pokémon Stadium games will not allow players to import their Pokémon into the game as was the case when the games originally came to N64.
This means that players will instead have to use the rental Pokémon which were included in the original games in case players did not own any of the supported GameBoy games.
Due to Pokémon Home’s Nintendo Switch support, the transfer of a player’s Pokémon to these Pokémon Stadium rereleases would be possible, especially as online functionality has featured in NSO games previously.
Microsoft has officially confirmed an HD remaster of GoldenEye 007 for both Nintendo Switch and that it will also come to Xbox Game Pass.
“25 years after its original release, experience GoldenEye 007 faithfully recreated for Xbox consoles,” developer Rare said. “Includes achievements, 4K resolution and a smoother framerate – even in split-screen local multiplayer!”
It’s not clear whether the Switch version of the game will include improvements beyond online multiplayer.
