The N64 classic will be added to the service on March 11, and will be available to Switch Online Expansion Pack subscribers.
The sequel to the original F-Zero on the SNES, F-Zero X was notable in that it was one of the few polygonal N64 games that ran at 60 frames per second.
What’s more, it managed this despite offering extreme levels of speed and 30 cars on the track at once.
F-Zero X will be the thirteenth Nintendo 64 game available on Switch Online in the west, following on from the addition of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask in February, Banjo Kazooie in January and Paper Mario in December 2021.
Once F-Zero X is added, the full list of Nintendo 64 titles on Switch Online will be as follows:
- Dr Mario 64
- F-Zero X
- The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
- 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
Switch Online’s Expansion Pack tier launched in October and was met with frustration from some players due to emulation issues and a lack of features including button mapping.
Nintendo 64 and Sega Mega Drive / Genesis games can only be played if Switch Online members upgrade to the optional Expansion Pack.
