Nintendo of America has announced in a tweet that the 1998 fan favourite will be added to the service’s Expansion Pack tier on January 20.
This makes it the second new N64 title added to the Expansion Pack tier since its launch in October.
It will follow N64’s Paper Mario, which joined the Switch Online Expansion Pack service in December.
Nintendo originally announced in December that Banjo-Kazooie would be coming to Switch Online.
At the time, Banjo-Kazooie’s original developer Rare said in a statement: “It’s a pleasure to be ushering the bear and bird onto Nintendo’s latest console, offering another modern way (alongside Xbox Game Pass and Rare Replay) to savour its many collectibles and googly eyes.”
Once it’s added to the service, the full list of Nintendo 64 games available on Switch Online will be:
- Dr Mario 64
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
- Mario Kart 64
- Mario Tennis
- Paper Mario
- Sin & Punishment
- Star Fox 64
- Super Mario 64
- Yoshi’s Story
Nintendo has also said that Pokémon Snap, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Mario Golf and F-Zero X will be added to the service at some point.
Switch’s N64 library is set to receive over 20 additional titles in the future, if a recent datamine of the platform is to be believed.
That’s according to analysis by Twitter user MondoMega, who has worked out using the launch games’ database IDs that at least 38 games are planned in total for the service.
That represents 17 more N64 titles than were released for both Wii and Wii U’s Virtual Console service.
