The N64 Update for Switch Online is now live (Version 2.6.0), and here's what's included ...

The N64 library in Switch Online received an upgrade earlier, both for the Nintendo classic Wave Race 64 and for upgrading the application to Version 2.6.0.

Nintendo does not release patch notes for these specific updates, but fortunately OatmealDome, a dataminer for Nintendo, is here once again to reveal everything going on behind-the-scenes this month, including some tweaks to last month's release, Pokemon Puzzle League: Untitled.

Version 2.6.0 of [NSO - Nintendo 64] has been released. Wave Race 64 has been added. - The NTSC, German, and PAL French versions of Pokemon Puzzle League have had their renderer settings changed (settings related to the color framebuffer were removed). - Sorting changed to place PAL versions after NTSC.

A few changes to the N64 application in Japan included, among them, the addition of a custom Robo and the Fanta ads in Wave Race 64.

Several additional changes have been made in Japan, including the removal of Fanta adverts in Wave Race 64.

LuigiBlood, a Dataminer and Nintendo Life user, dives into a little more depth:

- Pokemon Puzzle League has seen removed config and updated PCB and NRO (recompiled code). Probably a fix for something. - Custom Robo V2 has updated PCB and NRO. - Wave Race 64 Rumble Pak (Japan) has replaced Fanta advertisements with Nintendo 64 logo.

This latest update builds on some changes made in Version 2.4.0. You may find out more in our previous coverage.
