Jet Force Gemini’s Nintendo Switch Online release has a ‘broken’ widescreen mode, users playing the Japanese release have discovered.
As reported by Nintendo World Report, while the game does support widescreen mode, when using the feature the game doesn’t properly scale, instead letterboxing the image rather than filling the entire screen.
Jet Force Gemini was released for the Japanese NSO service this week, and will be released in the West in December, although no release date has been given.

The game follows a galactic law enforcement team called Jet Force Gemini, who are down to their final three members. The trio land on the planet Goldwood and have to rescue a tribe of small creatures called the Tribals from the evil insectoid Mizar and his army.
Players have to explore 15 worlds and collect all the Tribals hidden in each one, making use of each character’s unique skills to reach them all.
Offering widescreen support and Dolby Surround, Jet Force Gemini was one of the most technically accomplished titles on the N64 despite not requiring the console’s Expansion Pak for extra RAM.
When it comes to Switch Online next month, Jet Force Gemini will bring the total list of N64 games on Switch Online up to 27 in the west, following the addition of Mario Party 3 in October and Pokémon Stadium 2 and Excitebike 64 in August.
