It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for; an N64 & Sega Switch Online Subscription has finally been announced!

That’s right, we’re finally getting some of the best N64 games and the best Sega Mega Drive games (or Sega Genesis if you’re reading in the states) dropping on Nintendo’s hybrid hero.

The Nintendo Switch Online service is the main reason why Ninty continues its war on ROM uploaders everywhere. It’s become the go-to zone for accessing our favourite classic games without any faff, and playing NES and SNES games on a fancy TV or on the go is fantastic!

Heck, we’re so excited for Gameboy Switch online support that our excitement is already at fever pitch, and now they drop N64 & Sega Switch Online subscription support too…

… I think we need to lay down!

Everything We Know About The N64 & Sega Switch Online Subscription News

I know we were all excited about the latest Nintendo Direct video, and amongst news about Metroid Dread and a new Kirby game, Nintendo finally gave Switch Online users the information we’ve been dreaming of.

The downside; it’s probably going to cost a little more than the regular subscription price. Still, we’re only paying £3.99/$3.99 a month or £17.99/$17.99, so I guess adding another £5/$5 into the equation isn’t going to break the bank.

And when you see the game’s list below, you’re going to want to throw all your money at Doug Bowser and the gang.

Nintendo has gone on the record to say that more games will be coming over the next few months, but here’s the release list so far.


Dr. Mario 64

Mario Tennis

Sin and Punishment


Starfox 64

Super Mario 64

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

WinBack: Covert Operations

Yoshi’s Story


Castlevania Bloodlines

Contra: Hard Corps

Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine

Golden Axe

Eco the Dolphin

Gunstar Heroes


Phantasy Star IV


Shining Force

Streets of Rage

Shinobi III

New Nintendo Switch Online Controllers Dropping October

N64 Sega Switch Online Subscription - New Controllers to match the new games from classic consoles

Oh yeah; the fun doesn’t stop there!

To coincide with the new N64 & Sega Switch Online subscription news, Nintendo are dropping new N64 and Genesis controllers to recreate those classic console feels.

The new controllers look and feel exactly like the old ones (funny that, eh?). The main difference is that these controllers are 100% wireless and can be used anywhere, anytime.

How cool is that!

Not only does this signify Mario and Sonic becoming best friends for life, but it also marks the end of the console wars for good.

A Sega controller on a Nintendo console – I think we can safely say both companies are working on the same page now, don’t you?

Release dates for the controllers hasn’t been announced, but we know it will be round the same time as the October games release.

Personally, I can’t wait to play Sonic 2 on the Switch. Which of the games listed above are you most looking forward to playing?
