While some people weren’t too happy with the more expensive tier, Nintendo just added new SEGA Switch Online games to the expansion package to make it more digestible. Nintendo launched the most expensive option for its Switch Online ecosystem in October, bringing absolutely classic titles from its beloved Nintendo 64 library to NSO as well as brilliant SEGA games with matching wireless gamepads (you literally have maximum few hours to enter our hard-to-get N64 Wireless Controller FREE Discount). The SEGA roster, as of now, has grown even deeper with five more titles added to the mix for Expansion Pack members, including the cult classic Altered Beast. Head over below for a closer look.
New SEGA Switch Online games
As you know from our coverage of launch titles, SEGA Switch Online games already included some fantastic options including Castlevania Bloodlines, Sonic 2, Golden Ax, Contra: Hard Corps, Eco the Dolphin, Strider, and more. But as of now, you’ll find five new additions: Altered Beast, ToeJam & Earl, Dynamite Headdy, Sword of Vermilion, and Thunder Force II:
Nintendo is also offering a trailer to celebrate the new additions to YouTube:
Relive some of the iconic games that defined SEGA Genesis. Today, five more powerful games have been added to the SEGA Genesis – Nintendo Switch Online library and are playable now.
Currently, customers pay $ 20 per year for the Switch Online standard – the entry level with online access alongside SNES and NES game libraries. While most people would have been more than happy to add new games to this list, Nintendo instead decided to release the Bittersweet libraries N64 and SEGA Genesis at a price of $ 49.99 per year, which includes the standard package and what Nintendo calls the expansion pack. While the $ 50 price tag isn’t much higher than what Xbox and Sony charge for their respective online platforms, it was a tough pill to swallow for what is essentially a bunch of old games you can probably play. for free with less- more than legal and other ROM hacks. Nonetheless, it looks like Nintendo is doing its best to add value to the expansion pack with the new SEGA Switch Online games. Let’s just hope the membership price drops, or at least it goes on sale at some point (don’t expect too much).
