It’s a great time to be a Switch owner. With new releases on the horizon like Kirby and the Forgotten Lands, it is difficult to not be excited!
Nintendo are also adding more and more value to their online Expansion Pass. Not only have they added more SEGA games in the last few days, they’ve also announced 3 additional N64 games to sink your teeth into. Let’s take a look at what has been announced.
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (2000)
One of the more polarising entries in the Kirby series. Kirby 64 was regarded as a throwback to the simpler NES days even at it’s release. Simpler visuals and gameplay were refreshing for some but equally a point of complaint for others.
Gamers felt that the N64 was capable of more than Kirby 64 was able to deliver and this also reflected in its middling review scores. At its heart, you’re able to play as our favourite little pink ball as he joins forces with King Dedede to free the fairies from dark matter.
This 2.5D Platformer is a fun distraction and a really nice throwback to a time when games like Klonoa and Pandemonium were all the rage.
Mario Golf (1999)
It’s hard to know what to say about Mario Golf you don’t already know. It’s Mario, and he’s playing golf. What are you waiting for?
Pokemon Snap (1999)
One of our favourite games on the N64. It was incredible to be able to see pokemon behaving in a more natural way in this on rails snap ’em up.
Pokemon Snap puts you in the shoes of a budding photographer trying to take a picture of every single pokemon. You are awarded more points for better pictures and snapping a pokemon in a unique way. Whether that be catching a soaring Charizard or a Pikachu casting thunderbolt. The more points the better!
Pokemon Snap looks dated now, but beyond that is a game full of depth and replayability!
So what do you think? Which N64 classic will you be playing first?
