Switch: a probable increase in prices for online and N64 games on the way

The Nintendo Switch’s online offer could soon expand, with a potential price increase in the pipeline.

After the success of the compilation of remasters “Super Mario 3D All-Stars”, it seems that Nintendo has decided to welcome again in its catalog, the games of one of the distant relatives of the Switch. While the arrival of Gameboy games on the Nintendo console is still awaiting official confirmation, new rumors announce that Nintendo 64 games may arrive soon.

In any case, this is what the videographer evokes Nate the Hate in his latest podcast, where he confirms the arrival of Gameboy games on Nintendo’s latest console: ” Today I would like to add that yes this information is correct and that one of the platforms that will arrive on Nintendo Switch Online in the future is the revolutionary Nintendo 64. »

A larger catalog, but more expensive

If Nintendo regularly improves the content of its retro catalog, it is still greatly reduced. It is currently limited to 80 NES games and about 50 SNES games, accessible via the Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The still significant popularity of retro games, however, pushes Big N to offer more and more retro games in its offer.

If the arrival of the Gameboy and Nintendo 64 games is undoubtedly good news for the most nostalgic, many fear that this will be accompanied by an increase in the price of Nintendo Switch Online. Currently set at € 3.99 per month and € 19.99 per year to access all online services and the retro catalog. This could be accompanied by an additional premium offer, which would give access to these new games.

As always, this type of announcement should be taken with a grain of salt, as Nintendo could choose to modify or postpone its plans. We will therefore have to be patient to know whether or not we will soon be able to play cult titles like Donkey Kong 64 or Ocarina of Time in public transport. As the saying goes, Wait & See.
