Now that N64 games are set to come to Switch Online, I'm hoping Donkey Kong 64 and the original Super Smash Bros. get added. Maybe Banjo-Tooie with Stop 'n' Swop as well, since Microsoft is willing to let them have Banjo-Kazooie on the service.

I think it’s safe to say that DK 64 will be added eventually. It’s a staple of 3D platforming and one of the more popular DK games. Players loved the new Kongs and their abilities to the point that they actually want to see Lanky as a playable Fighter in Smash. Diddy Kong Racing is another possibility as it is widely regarded as one of the best games on the N64. The only N64 classic that I can’t really see coming to this new premium service is GoldenEye mostly due to the possibility of copyright issues as it is a licensed game. So far no games that have outside licenses have been released on the online service. The closest is Punch-Out! but even then it’s the re-release that removed Mike Tyson and added in Mr Dream. This is probably why some great games like NBA Jam and The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse haven’t been released for the SNES Online.

Am I the only one sick of the "SwITcH Iz A PoRt MaChInE" narrative?


I mean, yeah, there are a lot of ports, pretty much the majority of the Wii U library was re-released on the Switch, but even if you remove all of the ports and remakes from the Switch's library, it'd still be amazing. You'd still have (to name some of the more notable releases):

ARMS
XC2
Mario Odyssey
Super Mario Party
Kirby Star Allies
Mario Tennis Aces
Smash Ultimate
Yoshi's Crafted World
Mario Maker 2
Fire Emblem Three Houses
Luigi's Mansion 3
Astral Chain
Pokemon SwSh
Hyrule Warriors AoC
ACNH
New Pokemon Snap
Ring Fit Adventure
Paper Mario: The Origami King
Mario Golf: Super Rush

And you'd also have Metroid Dread, Pokemon Legends Arceus, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Bayonetta 3, Splatoon 3, BotW2, and Metroid Prime 4 on the way as well.

Like, in terms of original releases, what else do you want? There's only a handful of IPs that don't have some kind of new, original, main series game, like I could get fans of Mario Kart, DK, Pikmin, Star Fox, and F-Zero wanting their fill of something new and original, but in general, when have we ever seen a lineup anywhere close to what we've gotten from that list of original IPs? Even that selection of games is still amazing, and the way I see it the ports are bonuses.

Most of the games I played on Switch in the last year were ports or remakes of some kind--the lone exception was NEO TWEWY; so my own library would corroborate the Switch as a port machine. Most of this comes down to Switch being a portable; it's simply my choice system for playing old games. Also, I'm including games like Great Ace Attorney and Famicom Detective Club, which although old games, only got English release for the first time this year.

That said, there's plenty of non ports I'm eyeing for the near future, like Metroid Dread and SMT V. So, hmm.

I like being able to play several ports on the Switch but I think the system has plenty of games of its own that are also great. I particularly liked Mario Odyssey and Pokémon Sword and Shield.

20 years of Grand Theft Auto marks a special occasion for a trilogy release on Switch.


It will contain GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas.
That's the first time that a "Console" GTA game will make to a Nintendo Console. This is PS2 or 3D Trilogy, hopefully it's going to be a decent port unlike the PS3/360 one.. Also "I'll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda."

There are two GTA games on Nintendo Consoles already, GBA version and the DS's Chinatown Wars. Due to some weird stuff due the 3d/HD "reset", The Chinatown Wars is considered part of GTA4 & GTA5/online World. (There are about a Dozen GTA4 Characters that appear in GTA5 and reference events of GTA4.)

Is anyone here that owns the Switch OLED. I thinking to buy the OLED because my Switch is 4 years old. Well i think between Fall 2023 and Spring 2024 Nintendo Launchs the "Switch 2". The Switch OLED is like the Nintendo DS Lite for the Switch. Do anyone of you have a Switch OLED and can share the experience.

$50 hahahahahah NO.
They should just sell a '64 arcade' without the Online nonsense like what Microsoft did with Rare years ago, that'd be sure to make money! Heck I'd buy it exclusively for Paper Mario!

I sincerely hope they don't pull this crap if they ever release Pokemon XD/Colosseum or Emerald on the VC

If it was $30 just for N64/Genesis, perhaps that'd be fine. But adding the cost of dlc and requiring you have an active subscription to access dlc... Idk.

I generally don't like having active subscriptions, and only subscribe to a service as I plan to use it.

Well Nintendo finally pushed things too far. It's $50 for the NSO expansion. Nothing but pure, naked greed with this one. It's getting a hard pass from me. Hoping the lower tier is still around as I'll need the saving and the online. Don't need the rest, especially at that price point. Shame on them.

I'm pretty sure they'll add on to the expansion pack like they have with the normal membership. Here's hoping for Gamecube and Sega Saturn titles.
