Nintendo: The Nintendo 64 emulation not only suffers from performance and sound issues, but it also incorporates some graphical bugs. Some Nintendo 64 games are already available on Nintendo Switch Online, but only if you have the Expansion Pack, a decision that has already caused controversy. This controversy has been fed by the emulation problems of such award-winning video games as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64 or Mario Kart 64. In an interview with The Verge, Doug Bowser, president of Nintendo America, has referred to these unforeseen events and has ensured that the feedback received is taken “very seriously”.
“We are constantly looking for ways to make our online features and these games better, so we will continue to offer added value through services and more games from now on. We take feedback very seriously, and we will continue to look for ways to improve overall performance. For us, everything revolves around quality and great content ”as the main value, he assures.
How much does a new subscription cost?
That Nintendo 64 was going to be one of the novelties for Nintendo Switch Online had been rumored long before its official announcement. What had not been foreseen is that an additional subscription would be launched. Nintendo Switch Online gives access to NES and SNES games, but to enjoy Nintendo 64 and Sega Mega Drive it is necessary to pay for the Expansion Pack, which also includes the paid DLC for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Happy Home Paradise.
The individual subscription costs 39.99 euros per year, while the family one increases its price to 69.99 euros. Despite the bugs, the emulated versions add some new features, such as the ability to play online titles such as Mario Tennis 64 or Mario Kart 64. On the other hand, the company will add more video games in future waves, including The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Banjo-Kazooie or Paper Mario.
