The Switch Online Expansion Pack arrived earlier this week, bringing 9 N64 video games to Nintendo’s moveable console. That’s…not loads, and folks have been desperate to know what different classics might be headed to the subscription-based library. Recently datamined recordsdata provide just a few hints.
“Initial datamining from the N64 app is somewhat fruitful,” MondoMega wrote in a tweet sharing a spreadsheet of information scraped from the Expansion Pack recordsdata earlier this week. “Going by the game IDs there are at least 38 N64 titles planned for NSO.”
Because the record is in alphabetical order, and we already know seven of the opposite N64 video games coming someday sooner or later, it’s attainable to deduce what among the placeholders would possibly seemingly be for. The solely video games between Mario Kart 64 and Mario Tennis are Mario Party 1 by way of 3 and Mario Story, the Japanese title for Paper Mario. So that closely implies at the very least two of the Mario Party video games might be coming to the Expansion Pack.
The different pockets are extra nebulous. There are two slots between Super Mario 64 and WinBack: Covert Operations. Super Smash Bros. 64 and Wave Race 64 are the obvious decisions that fall into that hole. Wipeout 64, in the meantime, looks as if a powerful chance for the hole between WinBack and Yoshi’s Story.
According to Mondo’s findings, there are additionally presently 52 placeholder slots on the Sega Genesis aspect of the Expansion Pack, solely 14 of which have presently been taken. Hopefully certainly one of them belongs to Alien Soldier.
Even extra curiously, the datamine reveals that the primary variety of every sport ID corresponds to the platform. NES is one, SNES is 2, N64 is three, and Sega Genesis is 5, leaving 4 open for a but to be introduced console. Last month, Eurogamer reported that Game Boy and Game Boy Color video games have been set to come back to Switch Online. Nintendo introduced the N64 and Sega Genesis lineups as an alternative. Based on the datamine, nonetheless, it appears to be like like the hand held video games are nonetheless on the best way.
Time will inform in the event that they’re addition jacks up the worth of the Switch Online subscription much more.
