Two Nintendo 64 classics are coming to the Nintendo Switch online next month

Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscribers will get two new Nintendo 64 games to check out next month: Mario Party And the Mario Party 2. Both games are scheduled to be released on November 2. Since the expansion pack was released last year, Nintendo has mostly committed to releasing one game per month. That streak ended in September when no new games were released, so that might be a bit of a make-up! Whatever the case may be, fans of the N64 era are sure to be happy to see these two titles return.

Nintendo has released a new trailer for the old games, which can be found in the tweet embedded below.

Mario Party 2 It was previously released through Virtual Console on Wii and Wii U. However, the original version Mario Party It has not been available since it was first released in the late 1990s. The game was the source of some controversy upon its original release, with some small games requiring players to quickly rotate the joystick. Players who used their palms ended up with severe blisters (myself included), and many parents raised their concerns. Nintendo released gloves to fans who asked for them, and those mini-games were excluded from later releases. That changed with last year’s release of Mario Party Superstarsbut a disclaimer has been added.

It’s unclear if December will see the release of the N64, but several additional games have been announced for 2023, including fan favorites like Golden eyes 007And the Pokemon StadiumAnd the 1080 on ice. harvest moon 64 It was also announced in Japan, although the game will likely skip the North American release. In Japan, the rights to the game are owned by Marvelous, but it was published in North America by Natsume, who owns the rights to the name Harvest Moon. Marvelous had to change the name of the series to “Story of Seasons” when it began self-publishing, effectively splitting the franchise in two. Unless the two companies work out something, harvest moon 64 It will likely remain a Japanese exclusive.
