Leaker Claims Diddy Kong Racing and More Rare Games Are Coming to Switch Online
Nintendo dropped a bombshell by announcing that Nintendo 64 games would finally be available on Nintendo Switch Online. Nine N64 titles will debut for the service in October. Nintendo revealed which Nintendo 64 games would be available on Nintendo Switch Online, as well as the launch of the Expansion Pack. It also confirmed that some Nintendo 64 games will be available after launch.
Banjo-Kazooie is one of the Nintendo 64 games that will be available in the Switch Online Expansion Pack. Banjo-Kazooie, a classic Nintendo 64 title, is now available for the Switch Online Expansion Pack. However Rare owns Banjo-Kazooie. It was therefore surprising to see Banjo Kazooie in the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. However, this may not be the first Rare-developed game to arrive on the service.
Zippo, a Nintendo leaker who has previously accurately leaked Nintendo news, claims that other Rare-developed games will be coming to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. Zippo pointed out Banjo-Tooie and Killer Instinct as the titles in the pipeline. There is also the possibility that more Rare-developed games will be added to the service once they have made their debut.
Diddy Kong Racing looks like it would be a top choice for many Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack fans. Fans would be able to replay one of the most beloved racing games on the Nintendo 64, and also have the option to play Diddy Kong Racing online multiplayer, which is a first for the Nintendo 64 version.
The Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack offers the opportunity to play classic Nintendo 64 multiplayer online games. Nintendo might be able to time the release of Diddy Kong Racing for Nintendo Switch Online so that it arrives at a time when Mario Kart 64 multiplayer is still available online.
It is important to stress that Nintendo has not confirmed this rumor and it is only a rumor. Zippo has leaking Nintendo news accurately in the past. However, it is possible that their information is skewed. Fans should therefore take this information with caution. It seems probable that Rare-developed Nintendo 64 games will be coming to Nintendo Switch Online in the future, but for now Banjo-Kazooie is the only confirmed one.
