Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Sega Genesis and N64 Coming to Nintendo Online With a New Expansion Subscription

The controllers should have been 40€, considering the SNES controller is 30€.



Around the Network

Yoshi's Story and Sin & Punishment for me. Later Paper Mario, Banjo-Kazooie and Kirby 64. That N64 controller is way too expensive but it could really come in handy for emulation. Overall, if this service is only 10 bucks more than the regular one, I'll subscribe.

Edit: Does the N64 controller come with rumble support included?



Ah this is what I've been calling for. Nintendo made the original Online subscription so cheap I think that's what held them back from wanting to adding more systems to it. Now with a premium version of the subscription they can add more systems. Awesome that N64 is finally being added. I figured we would see Game Boy next. And Genesis is a total shock! Hopefully in like a year they add GB and GBA as well so we truly get a complete 'Netflix'-like service of retro Nintendo games. Dropping 9 N64 games and 14 Genesis games at once is pretty awesome.

After almost 5 years, the subscription model is finally getting the systems it needs to be better than the old Virtual Console model. Now this service can just pass over to the next system when it comes out in a few years, allowing all these great retro systems/games to be played from the launch of each system without needing to gradually add everything from scratch like they've had to do the past few gens.

Just praying that Nintendo can somehow get Microsoft on board to allow Rare games on this service as that is like half of the best of the N64 library, although I'm sadly confident that won't happen.

EDIT: Oh dang just saw the games they've already announced coming next: Banjo (maybe we will get to see all those great Rare games afterall!), Majora's Mask, Mario Golf, F-Zero X, and more! I let my Online subscription lapse at the end of last year but I might need to get this premium tier with all these great new games coming!

The thing is: If Nintendo properly expands this service in the future (which they now have incentive to thanks to the higher revenues) this could become a really cool service, sort of like a retro Gamepass. Imagine a service that's 50-60$ a year and also offers Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, Gamecube and Wii games. And of course an actually decent N64 library. These subscription services are really profitable and Nintendo has been missing out so far as Nintendo Switch Online is so cheap. There's lots of potential here.

With the Genesis being added I hope they will add the Dreamcast to the service at some point.

Nintendo wouldn't have much an issue with the likes of Donkey Kong 64 and with Banjo coming over, Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Blast Corps, and Jet Force Gemini might be real possibilities with Microsoft. Idk how Diddy Kong Racing would work since the characters are Rare but the title name is a Nintendo character lol but Microsoft would probably be cool with that. 

The BIGGEST question would be Goldeneye! Nintendo should do everything in their power to make that happen regardless of the cost of licensing lol! Imagine online multiplayer for Goldeneye!! 



The Genesis lineup is fire. N64 could be better.

If the license for Golden Eye is going to be obtained, it would be for a remake not on the Switch online sadly. Which they tried this once before and Nintendo and Microsoft ended up canceling the project when it was basically complete as they had disagreements on the product and such.

Goldeneye online...the ultimate dream! Though at this point I slobber less over this idea than I would have like 15 years ago tbh. Still, I bet Nintendo would see Switch Online playtime skyrocket with Goldeneye online.

Also, why the hell wouldn't they include the sexy and practical six-button Genesis controller instead of the fat and ugly three button one?

.....If you aware of this.

Japan is legit getting a six-button Mega-Drive controller, according to Japanese Nintendo Direct.

Saw it this morning. Japan is still best girl in Nintendo's eyes. Have you ever played a Genesis version of Street Fighter 2 with the three-button pad? Lol...
