Nintendo this week released the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, making multiple games from the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis / Mega Drive playable.

MondoMega on Twitter has now datamined the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis / Mega Drive Switch Online apps, revealing multiple games that are coming to the service that have to yet to be announced.

Each console app contains a numbered list of games that are in alphabetical order and some of the gaps are small enough to make it obvious what those games are. 

The suggested list of N64 games coming to Switch Online include Super Smash Bros., Wave Race, and Mario Party 1 to 3. At least 38 N64 games are planned, along with 52 Sega Genesis / Mega Drive games.

What is more interesting is the Switch Online platforms are numbered with NES given the number 1, SNES number 2, N64 number 3, and Sega Genesis / Mega Drive number 5. This leaves a gap with number 4 missing suggesting the rumored Game Boy games coming to Switch Online might be happening.

If DK64 comes and has online multiplayer, I will destroy you all day one.

So with 17 games remaining, I'm really hoping DK64, Perfect Dark, Diddy Kong Racing, and 1080 Snowboarding are there too. I'll see if in a year if the expansion pack is worth upgrading to and Nintendo fixes the N64 emulator lol not counting on it though.

Most of the first party games should make it, and hopefully Nintendo/Microsoft can work out more than just Banjo coming to the Switch online. I'm hoping to see some games I missed playing during my n64 days. Space Station Silicon Valley, Ogre Battle, and Body Harvest. I would also like to see Mischief Makers on there, I rented it back in the day but didn't finish it. It seemed fun enough but at that time I wasn't giving 2d games much attention.

They better fix the emulation and lower the price.

They might do the first part, but sure as hell ain't gonna do the second lol. If there's one thing I've learned about Nintendo is that they don't cave to public backlash like the way Sony has done several times this year. Either investors will have to get onto them or so few people upgrade to the Expansion Pack that it gets their attention

Then we'll just have to ramp up the pressure.

Price is only an issue at launch because there's not many games. Once more games come out (and they fix all the day 1 bugs) it'll be well worth the price. Then eventually throw in GB and presumably GBA and suddenly $50 is going to seem like a steal. The issue with the price (other than people just loving to complain) is a temporary thing only, like when the Online launched and for $20 there were only like 10 NES games or whatever. But it wouldn't have made sense for Nintendo to price it low at the start and then keep upping the price each time they add more games. So you get complainers at launch and then everyone is happy later on once the library fills out.

You have a point there, but I await to see what happens with baited breath.

Ogre Battle, Harvrst Moon 64, and Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon would be nice.

Damn it. If they have Mario Party 1 online, I'll actually have to buy this shit.

Add dreamcast support with slave zero, re-volt and power stone.
As well as the N64 games, bomberman 64 and hot wheels turbo racing and I will break down and get it

Laggy Smash Bros, sounds great

Smash can't be 33 if the list is using Japanese titles, because it would be Dai Rantō Smash Brothers then and fit around the first slots... right?

I think the main focus is to actually get decent emulation happening first before the add more titles.
