Now that Jackbox has been confirmed for NSO Game Trials here in Europe, I'd like to ask a question regarding a certain control style: how do you connect phones in order to play Jackbox? Do you have to download a separate app, go to a specific website or just join the game itself? The fact you can play with a phone is immensely exciting (means I don't have to get more controllers specifically for it), I'm just a bit confused about how it all works is all. If you've played any Jackbox game on Switch, do let me know the process behind it

Also, on the topic of Game Trials, I'd like to go on a little rant about one in particular if you don't mind: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker.

I've always wanted to play Treasure Tracker. I think it's a brilliant concept that fleshed out an under-utilised Mario character that also led to one of the most unique puzzle games ever made. I loved the look of it so much that I've played the eShop demo of it to death at this point. So yeah: I like this game.

The problem then arises with wanting to get it. As can clearly be seen by what came before, I absolutely want to get it but between other games coming out, it's hard to find the wallet space for it. That's why I've been pining for a Game Trial of it for so long: that way I can finally play most (if not all) of it without having to spend a cent. And we have gotten one. Two in fact! .....And they've both been exclusive to Japan and North America ARE YOU KIDDING ME CJNEJWFWJFVWBOQF.

The fact that I've been jebaited not once, but TWICE, aggrivates me more than you could ever imagine. I've found some of my all time favourite games through Game Trials (Dead Cells is a great example) and I know for a fact that Treasure Tracker would be the exact same. THEY JUST WON'T GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY UGHHHHHHHHHH.

@Fizza I haven't played it on the Switch, but how it usually works is whoever starts up the game will get a 4-letter code, and anyone else who wants to play just goes to the Jackbox website on whatever device they want and enter that code to join the game. Pretty simple.

And I felt the same way about the Dead Cells Game Trial. I've heard such great things about that game but it doesn't seem like the type of game I usually like, so I've always wanted to just try it. But the Trial never came to America, so it still just sits on my wishlist.

I keep forgetting to bring this up, but one interesting thing I noticed is that for the Japanese Direct, Goldeneye is 2023. Here, it was the vague "coming soon". I wonder if that means they're at least trying to get it out this year, but aren't certain yet of when its coming.

When are we thinking the next N64 game is coming? If Goldeneye is 2023 like @kkslider5552000 has pointed out, then that means we're guaranteed (for the first time ever in fact) to not have a brand new game for over a month. If that's the case then I think we can confidently knock September off as that month, seeing how we have less than a week of it left and it was also the month that announced the next year's worth of games so it'd make sense to skip it in favour of the last quarter of the year. As for my personal predictions then based on the 3 games we know for a fact are going to be out by the end of the year, I would say:

  • Mario Party 1 in October (the month where Superstars came out last year so it'd be quite fitting, though that hasn't really stopped them from releasing these games seemingly whenever the hell they feel it).
  • Pilotwings 64 in November (pace-breaker between MP 1 & 2).
  • Mario Party 2 in December (last remaining game for the year).

Is this list mainly due to me wanting Mario Party to come out as soon as humanly possible? .....Yes, but I still think it's a reasonable enough assumption to make regarding the rest of the year. I always do love these types of roadmaps when it comes to NSO games though, I hope to god they keep going.

@Fizza I think if Goldeneye was coming out in 2023 outside Japan, they wouldn't have put "coming soon" in the Direct outside Japan. Leaning towards October 5th for Goldeneye given the 60th anniversary of Dr. No film and Microsoft has no 1st party Game Pass releases for October.

As for the rest, I get the feeling Superstars will get DLC (day 1 in the Expansion Pack) coinciding with N64 additions otherwise I think the N64 Mario Party games would be spread out more (e.g. MP1 in 2022, MP2 in Summer 2023, MP3 in Holiday 2023). So I'm predicting Pilotwings in late October/early November and Mario Party 1+2 in late November/December (Mario Party 3 being January).

I'd like to have other people's opinion on this; What are the chances of Diddy Kong Racing and DK64 coming to Switch Online? Don't get me wrong, getting all three Mario Parties and Goldeneye is nice.. but I was seriously hoping for DK64 or Diddy Kong Racing as I haven't played either of them in ages... and I'm getting kinda nerveous that they'll never be added to NSO

@Grumblevolcano MP2 has been confirmed for 2022 though so it genuinely might be the order in which they were revealed that they'll be coming out (in which case god we're going to be drowning in parties).

@Mauzuri I'd say its highly likely since we've gotten both Banjo Kazooie and Goldeneye already and, unlike those other two that have a bunch of company hoops to jump through, DK64 and Diddy Kong Racing are both owned by Nintendo so I'd say they'll probably be some of the last games added myself once we're nearing the Switch 2 (I for one would love to play DKR for the very first time ).

Nothing like a triple run of Mario Party to ruin friendships over (and beyond) this holiday season.

Given that Pokemon often has a big presentation early in a year, I'm hoping that maybe by the time Stadium 1 & 2 are set to come out, we'll have GB/C (at least) on NSO, with 1st and 2nd gen games to be added, and transfer pack features supported with Stadium 1 & 2. Extremely low chance of happening, but dreaming is free.

Donkey Kong Country 64 was already made available on Wii U VC, so NSO shouldn't be out of the question. Supposedly, it's inclusion of "Jetpac" was not a factor in it taking so long to come out (never released on Wii VC).

Diddy Kong Racing seems probable, given we've already gotten Banjo-Kazooie and are getting Goldeneye (the latter of which had far more red tape involved). It does contain Rare-owned characters, but Nintendo and Microsoft/ Rare seem to be on good terms.

@Fizza I know both MP1 and MP2 are 2022, I was just saying I figured they'd be more spread out if Superstars DLC wasn't happening given Superstars and NSO Expansion Pack are essentially competing with each other (both are heavily focused on MP1-3).

@TowaHerschel7 Forgive my ignorance but what are you talking about?

@Fizza I highly doubt Nintendo will drop NSO on Switch when it's successor is released. I imagine Switch will still get GB/GBC/GBA games added at the very least with all new additions to existing consoles on the service being cross-gen. Switch may get even more support then that, but I imagine this would be the bare minimum we'd get even if Switch 2 released tomorrow.

@Fizza That was the gibberish you wrote being silly in your above post, I was just being silly as well pointing out that the gibberish had the right number of "digits" to be a game redemption code on the Switch eShop. ūü§™

@Grumblevolcano Goldneye was apparently listed as 2023 in the Japanese Direct though so my guess (or rather my hope) is that this'll be Mario Party.
