Mario Golf Is the Next Game To Be Added to Nintendo Switch Online’s N64 Library

Pitching next week.

Mario Golf will become the 14th Nintendo 64 game available on Switch when it arrives on April 15.

When it arrives players will be able to download Mario Golf as part of the Switch Online Expansion Pack, which costs $49.99 and is the only way to play N64 games on the console.

While now a long-running series, the N64 version of Mario Golf marked the Mushroom Kingdom crew's first time hitting the links and features 18 playable characters and six championship courses.

Nintendo has added new games to the N64 library roughly once a month, with March seeing F-Zero X added to the service while in February it was The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

The full range of N64 titles currently available on Switch is: Banjo-Kazooie, Dr. Mario 64, F-Zero X, Mario Kart 64, Mario Tennis, Paper Mario, Sin & Punishment, Star Fox 64, Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Win Back: Covert Operations, and Yoshi’s Story.

The Switch Online Expansion Pass also grants access to SEGA Genesis games alongside DLC for Nintendo games including Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Happy Home Paradise and more recently Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Booster Course Pass.

The extra content doubles the number of tracks available in the game, with the first two cups - Golden Dash and Lucky Cat - being released in March.

In our 8/10 review of the 1999 game, IGN said: "Mario Golf is a great combination of wacky fun and superb golf simulation."
