If the name of the Game Boy was on everyone’s lips for a few days, it was finally other older consoles that appeared during the Nintendo Direct. Including a famous 16-bit … from SEGA!
If you had been told 30 years ago that the preservation of SEGA games would go through a service from Nintendo, would you not have laughed like a whale? Well, yet, it is very serious. During a particularly packed Nintendo Direct, Yoshiaki Koizumi announced the upcoming arrival of an additional pack of retro Nintendo 64 games and Mega Drive in a new Nintendo Switch Online offer.
The Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pass offer will involve an increase in the price of the subscription, which has not yet been specified. It will be available at the end of October. And just to be sure to have your attention, the Kyoto firm has revealed the titles that will be there Day One and those that will arrive later. Be careful, there is a lot of worship. And some of them, like a mythical Kart game, promise online games.

You will soon have the opportunity to order replica Nintendo 64 pad and Mega Drive (3 buttons) from the Nintendo Store. These dedicated wireless controllers will have a price, around 50 euros. More information to come. Quick, that wouldn’t be bad.
