Nintendo Unveils The Next Nintendo 64 Game For Switch Online + Expansion Pack

Nintendo Unveils The Next Nintendo 64 Game For Switch Online + Expansion Pack ...

Nintendo hasn't announced the future of Switch Online + Expansion Pack, so what's the future? Nintendo has today revealed that the game to follow up Pokemon Puzzle League will be Wave Race 64, a 1996 jet ski racing game.

It's not the first time we've seen it on one of Nintendo's digital services, but it's still a welcome addition to Switch Online's N64 library. This game was developed by Nintendo EAD and follows the Game Boy original, released in 1992.

Yes, the Kawasaki banners make a comeback. They were originally replaced with Wii and DS banners in the Wii Virtual Console release, but they were eventually restored in the Wii U release.

Wave Race 64 will be released later this week, and this version of the game includes Rumble Pak support. If you'd like to learn more about Wave Race's history or the Switch Online retro offerings, check out the following links:
