It might be time to pick up your Nintendo Switch if you haven’t done so in a while. Nintendo will allegedly include emulators for old N64 titles to its subscription-based Switch Online service, in addition to launching a slick new OLED version of the device. Switch Online now allows gamers to play multiplayer games and emulators for the NES and SNES, allowing subscribers to play classic games such as Super Mario Bros. and Tetris. Subscribers to the £18-per-year subscription, on the other hand, may soon be receiving a lot more for their money. Nintendo insider Nate The Hate claims that the Nintendo 64 will be included in the Switch Online emulator lineup.
After earlier forecasting that the Game Boy and Game Boy Color will be added to the service shortly, Nate The Hate stated on his show that Switch Online would be expanded to include another platform: the Nintendo DS.
“Eurogamer [said] that more platforms would be introduced to Nintendo Switch Online in the future,” he stated.
“That information is correct, and the groundbreaking Nintendo 64 will be one of the systems that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch Online in the future,” Nate said.
Nate The Hate even speculated that Nintendo might use the situation as a pretext to launch a “premium” Switch Online price tier. Given that this month marks the console’s fourth anniversary, he predicts an announcement this month. NateDrake, an industry insider and popular Nintendo Youtuber, has already been linked to numerous correct Nintendo leaks, most notably regarding the OLED model and the debut of certain EA titles on Switch. Because it was the first gaming system to incorporate 3D graphics, the N64 was a game-changer in the industry. Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and GoldenEye 007 were included.
