Nintendo 64 Switch Online 18+ was released alongside GoldenEye 007 and Jet Force Gemini last month in Japan.
Unlike the subscription service’s other N64 games, Japanese users were required to download and launch a separate app in order to play the two classic Rare titles. It seems that this app will soon roll out in Australia, after it was recently rated.
GoldenEye 007 was added to Switch Online in the West earlier this year. Nintendo’s Japanese arm likely held back its addition until it could find a solution for the age ratings requirements.
However, the game is already available in Australia, so it’s not yet clear which games this app would be necessary for in the region.
When it comes to Switch Online this month, Jet Force Gemini will bring the total list of N64 games on Switch Online up to 27 in the west, following the addition of Mario Party 3 in October and Pokémon Stadium 2 and Excitebike 64 in August.
Switch Online’s Expansion Pack tier launched in October 2021 alongside a library of Nintendo 64 games. Nintendo has confirmed that 1080° Snowboarding and Harvest Moon 64 will be added to the N64 library in the future.
