I wonder if they'll put any Pokemon games out on it or not. On the one hand it's an obvious choice, but on the other this is Nintendo and also Pokemon could make easy bank just selling the damn games all over again instead of putting them in a subscription service.

I mean, they put G/S/C on the 3DS eShop, I wouldn't be shocked to see them add them there as well.

I'm with Dragonlord though; I didn't care too much for other games that weren't Pokemon on the GB/GBC, but if this leads into GBA or other classic console based emulation, I'm all for it! I actually couldn't name you a single game outside of the Pokemon franchise and Harry Potter that was on the GBC that I played Hmm

I just think about the possibility of finally having a way to play Golden Sun that doesn't require me to dig out one of my GBA SPs, or using an emulator, and it just makes me happy. Being able to play through Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age on the Switch would be orgasmic.

I'd also kill to be able to play Fire Emblem 7 and 8 on the Switch as well. Just so much goodness there to be had. Hopefully it won't take them too long to finally get to the point of adding GBA games.

My only fear is that, judging by a lot of the NES/SNES games they've added on NSO, there's going to be like one good game added for every 10 absolute garbage games.

Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis Games Coming to Nintendo Switch Online
A new subscription tier for Nintendo Switch Online was announced during todays Nintendo Direct, which will give you the ability to play a selection of Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games!



The new tier will roll out some time in October, although no pricing was given. If you're looking to experience these games with their original controllers, Nintendo Switch Online members can purchase a Nintendo 64 controller and/or a Sega Genesis Control Pad for $49.99 each. There will also be additional Nintendo 64 games added over time, so don't give up hope if one of your favourites didn't make the cut!

What do you think about the games being offered? Does the pay wall turn you off from the offerings, or will you happily subscribe to the higher tier if the price is right?
