Nintendo has today updated its Switch Online N64 library with the addition of GoldenEye 007. It's also bumped up the app to Version 2.9.0 - so what's changed?

As you probably know by now, the video game giant doesn't normally share patch notes about these app updates. Fortunately, well-known dataminer OatmealDome is on the case - uncovering everything this latest update has to offer.

Here's the rundown, which does mostly seem to focus on GoldenEye 007. but there's also a reference to the some previous NSO releases including Mario Party, Mario Party 2 and Yoshi's Story. The "gongs and static" are in the Q Watch, too. Here's the full rundown:

[NSO - Nintendo 64] - Version 2.9.0

- GoldenEye 007 added.
- If you want to play online, you have to create a lobby and have friends join.
- No “modern” controls like the Xbox version.
- The Q Watch music does have the gongs and static.

- The ahead-of-time compiled executables for Mario Party and Mario Party 2 were updated, details unknown.

Dataminer LuigiBlood also claims GoldenEye 007 for Switch "is the same ROM as usual but they removed the face textures for Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton. They're all unused..." - read more in our standalone story about this.

OatmealDome also highlighted a fix to Yoshi's Story in Version 2.9.0 (as noted by Twitter user MondoMega):

"Looks like the Inviso boss fight from Yoshi’s Story has been fixed in version 2.9.0. In prior versions, background objects didn’t appear “behind” Inviso’s transparency."
