A short teaser video on the Nintendo UK Twitter also showed off what would be coming to the service down the line, and that includes Pokémon Snap, The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Paper Mario, Banjo-Kazooie, F-Zero X and more.


Select games will also include online multiplayer, with Mario Kart 64 having up to four player online races.

The selection of Sega Mega Drive games available is listed below:

There’s currently no specific release date or price for the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack.


There was no mention at the Direct of the heavily rumoured Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles that could be coming to Nintendo Switch, which has been reported over the last few weeks.

In other news, Bayonetta 3 finally got a gameplay trailer at the Nintendo Direct alongside a release sometime in 2022. It also looks as though the voice actress for the character has changed.
