Outside of the existing N64 library, several upcoming games have already been announced – though a specific release date is unclear. Nintendo has revealed that the following games eventually will be added to the expansion pack:

The Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack also includes access to a library of games from the Sega Mega Drive, which includes games like Sonic 2, Castlevania Bloodlines and more. A full list of available games can be found at Nintendo’s website.
In other Nintendo news, Mario Party Superstars has brought back the notorious Tug o’ War minigame with a new health warning, after the Mario Party event caused a string of injuries after launching on the N64 in 1999.
Elsewhere, recent reports have suggested that Shadow Of The Tomb Raider runs much better now that Denuvo anti-piracy software has been removed.
