Nintendo unveiled a new, higher-end subscription to the Nintendo Switch Online service a few months ago, known as the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, which costs $ 49.99 a year. This subscription gives gamers the opportunity to experience some of the games on the Nintendo 64 console and the Sega Genesis console on the Nintendo Switch. According to the latest game news, it seems that Nintendo was able to increase the quality of these old games on their day console to make the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack more valuable.
It should be noted that the service in question uses software simulators on the console to run these old games, and its performance has been met with various criticisms from some gamers. Delays in game play, graphical problems, and the disappearance of effects affecting the effect space can be considered as problems that Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscribers have encountered when playing Nintendo 64 games on the Nintendo Switch console. Doug BoozerIn November 2021, Nintendo, the head of US offices, said that the company takes criticism of the service performance very seriously.
Fortunately, Nintendo seems to be slowly improving the service and switch performance on older games. After Banjo-Kazooie was included in the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, we saw that the service received an update. Result? Now the water texture in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Nintendo Switch is no longer the same as before, and its graphic glitch has been fixed.
Of course, Nintendo still has a long way to go, and the various games on the company’s online service are far from ideal on the switch. But when Nintendo is able to increase the quality of the game without changing the game itself and only with the update of the emulator, gamers can hope to continue to improve the service; Maybe in a few months we can experience all the old games in the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack in the best possible way on the Nintendo Switch.
Do not forget that the number of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack games increases over time. For example, in February of this year, we will see The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask join this shared service; A work with an average score of 95 out of 100 critics in Metacritic.
