@Fizza Oof, Yeah, that is a hefty download; I have the physical version (imported from the UK; cheaper than buying an ESRB copy). As for save files....My memory is a little foggy, but I believe there are multiple save slots. This is to allow for save switching, not to mention there is an autosave feature in the game. Autosaving is nice, but it can hamstring you in certain circumstances.

Looks like North America's getting a different game trial.

If I do play this one, it'd probably be only once because I'm not into fighting games. Kinda curious about that Ys game, honestly!

Pokken Tournament is high on my list of Switch games I'd like to play but wouldn't spend much money on, so that's very good for me.

Didn't this game get a trial period roughly two years ago?
Hopefully I didn't delete my save that from that time.

Why does the screen look so small on Wave Race compared to the other N64 games? It has more black around it.

I just got a Ps5 and it’s really cool that I can play some of my Vita games that had Ps4 compatibility or versions… also, if I renew my PS plus membership, I can play all the games I downloaded several years ago.

I wish Nintendo would do this in some capacity- allow us to access our digital purchases for at least some games. I would actually pay to be able to do this through subscription service….

So, Stadium 1 & 2 coming next year. Pokemon usually has major presentations early in a new year. Maybe by then, GB/C will be coming to NSO and they'll announce 1st and 2nd gen for it, and let us use our teams in Stadium? One can hope. Rentals aren't exactly ideal.

Never did get to play Pilotwings 64 or Excitebike 64, so that's cool.

MARIO PARTY YESSSSSSSSSS.

I've been holding off on Super/Superstars on the off chance that the N64 entries would get added to NSO EP. SO GLAD I LISTENED TO MY INTUITION BABY!

Oh and Goldeneye's pretty cool too I guess

As a PC gamer who hates paid online, the inclusion of Pokemon Stadium and GoldenEye is making me consider getting 1 year of the Expansion Pack. Just to experience GoldenEye at least. Going to wait for now. Will most likely go back to the base membership after it expires if I do.

I'm just glad the got whatever legal hurdles the game had to get it to both Switch Online Expansion Pack and Xbox Game Pass were resolved.

Pokemon Stadium does make me wonder, if Game Boy came to Switch Online with classic Pokemon, would that potentially allow the transfer pack functions. I know this isn't official, but just food for thought.

I wonder if they've done anything to the NSO release of Goldeneye. Xbox has better performance and updated controls. If NSO is just the original game emulated without any tweaks... I guess it's better then nothing?

EDIT: Apparently only the NSO version has online play, probably via the same method used for all NSO titles... but then, wouldn't it still be in splitscreen?

@Fizza Aww, that's a bummer. Good eye, I missed that too while watching the Direct.

Unless maybe they only mean the newer games... we got bamboozled by the fine print.

@Sunsy I gotta be honest, the Mario Party games are what's making me want the expansion pack. I'd love to play those online. I wouldn't mind playing GoldenEye, either.

I'll be honest, I was not expecting Mario Party this soon, consider y'know...the Superstars release. And tbh, Superstars is probably a vastly better option to play online, but even still, I would've thought they wouldn't want to do that.

Goldeneye is bizarre to me, since Nintendo has gotten exactly one 3rd party game on the N64 NSO, and then decided to get the one that was arguably the most difficult to get. Like they had to collaborate with both Microsoft and checks Eon Productions, and possibly others too, just to get this. When you consider all the far easier 3rd party games that aren't on NSO, its just very weird to me.

@kkslider5552000 Microsoft also benefits a lot from Goldeneye, it's a 2 way thing. A strong Day 1 on Game Pass release in a year that's very weak for Game Pass and Rare Replay is more complete (the Xbox trailer has the Rare Replay logo). Goldeneye appears on so many "best games of all time" lists so to be able to say that's on Game Pass is a very big deal.

@kkslider5552000 @Grumblevolcano I think what puzzles me the most about this whole thing (apart from the fact that it's actually happening) is that the Xbox version of Goldeneye doesn't have online play....yet the SWITCH version does. This feels like it should be swapped around, doesn't it? I mean I'm not complaining: I'd love to play some online Goldeneye wherever. Just don't pick Oddjob ok: I've heard horror stories about him.

It'll be splitscreen, though. You'll only have ½ or ¼ the screen real estate, even when playing online. So it's there... just not ideal. Especially if your friends are screen peakers.

Still odd that Xbox doesn't have it though. They added it to the Perfect Dark remaster...
