With a recent announcement at Nintendo Direct, N64 games will be introduced in the new “expansion pack” layer of Nintendo Switch Online. Banjo-Kazooie And F-ZERO X will soon be playable on Switch — exciting 64-bit retro gamers. However, Japanese gamers have several reasons to look forward to the new library landing in October.

Of course, with the Nintendo Switch Online service, regional games are nothing new. Japanese subscribers will be able to get Custom Robo and Custom Robo V2 in addition to the lineup announced in the West.

The Custom Robo series played the first game westward in the GameCube entry of the action RPG series developed by Noise, and then on the DS, but the previous two N64 games have never been released outside Japan. Therefore, it is exclusive. Japanese gamers sacrifice Dr. Mario 64 to win some custom robos.

We featured the first of Nintendo’s 10 games. Please finally come to the west. This pair is for Japanese Nintendo Switch Online subscribers only, Anyone You can access and download the app using your Nintendo Account in Japan and an NSO subscription in another region. This means that these games will be accessible all over the world.

Of course, they aren’t localized and aren’t included in the first batch of release titles, but customize a little robot for the Holosseum battle when the game is released on an unspecified future day. I can’t wait.
