Nintendo is bringing back some classic N64 and Sega Mega Drive games

Great news for fans of some amazing classic games.

Nintendo held a special announcement on Thursday evening, filled with news and reveals of what players can expect in the coming weeks, months and years.


Part of the September Nintendo Direct announcement was the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Plan will arrive in October.

The new membership plan is being added to Nintendo Switch Online and it will include an N64 collection, similar to what we saw with the NES & SNES collections previously.

Additionally, a Sega Mega Drive collection [or the Sega Genesis collection, as it is known elsewhere in the world] will be added as well. Wireless N64 and Sega Genesis controllers will also be available for purchase, priced at €49.99.

The new membership plan launches later October 2021, but no pricing has been announced. Check out the update announcement right here:
