Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack datamine mondomega 38 Nintendo 64 games n64 52 sega genesis more games coming dataminer list listings mario party 1 2 3

At the announcement of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, Nintendo promised more Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games would arrive over time, and it listed a few of them by name. These games include The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s MaskMario Golf, Pokémon Snap, F-Zero X, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Paper Mario, and Banjo-Kazooie. How many more games can we expect beyond those? Well, a good bunch, it seems. MondoMega dove into Nintendo Switch Online and its new Expansion Pack offerings for a datamine, and the dataminer uncovered listings that suggest at least 38 Nintendo 64 (N64) games and 52 Sega Genesis games are planned to be added to the service in total.

Additionally, the first number of each Switch Online game’s ID corresponds to its platform, with SNES being “2,” Nintendo 64 being “3,” and Sega Genesis being “5,” which suggests there is one more unannounced platform to be “4.” Prior reports suggest that platform would be Game Boy / Game Boy Color.

The entries for the 38 Nintendo 64 games and 52 Sega Genesis games found in the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack datamine are largely listed alphabetically, so if you put on your thinking cap, you can deduce what some of the missing entries are, especially for N64. For instance, Nintendo 64 game #37 is pretty clearly The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. It seems like all three Mario Party games may be wedged in-between Mario Kart 64 and Mario Tennis as well, which would be some dynamite news. The original Mario Party was never ported to Wii Virtual Console, with some believing it was due to the ol’ palm-burning issue. (And I did indeed burn a hole in my palm playing that dang game.)

What do you surmise are some of the blank entries on this list? We already have a list of 10-ish Nintendo 64 games we really hope make the cut.
