While players are still cutting their teeth on the first volley of Nintendo 64 games freshly landed in the Nintendo Switch Online subscription, the manufacturer is adding without warning an RPG with a certain popularity rating.
It is an understatement to say that the public of old role-players hopes with each new episode of the series Paper Mario a return to the fundamentals. But since the Wii episode released in 2007, the RPG dimension definitely seems to have given way to the rest, to the chagrin of some. No matter, since the players subscribed to the new Nintendo Switch Online offer will finally be able to afford the return to the sources they hoped for.
You guessed it: the founding episode Paper Mario will soon join the first list of games from the Nintendo 64 catalog. Nintendo has indeed announced its arrival for December 10th., as a gift before the hour:
As this brief press release does not fail to specify, it will be necessary to have subscribed to the recent Additional Pack to benefit from it. Life is sometimes well done, since some will be able to discover this resolutely role-playing Paper Mario in the conditions of the time (or almost). Indeed, the wireless replica of the Nintendo 64 controller is obviously compatible with this newcomer.
By expanding “quickly” the catalog of Nintendo Switch Online, the manufacturer may try to take of course the possible critics who complain about the lack of updates of the service. In December 2019, the company announced the end of monthly game additions, to prefer case by case.
The arrival of the Nintendo 64 catalog was not, moreover, smooth., since some of the players had publicly questioned the quality of the emulation, the fault of regular drops in framerate, lag or some unwelcome crashes. Faced with these criticisms, the president of Nintendo of America had affirmed to take the remarks “very seriously”.
The arrival of Paper Mario will calm the game? If the 2001 RPG will arrive on December 10, the Nintendo Switch Online catalog should soon welcome The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Banjo-Kazooie, Pokémon Snap, Mario Golf and Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards.
