At Nintendo Direct on the morning of September 24, Nintendo revealed that the new pricing plan for the online service Nintendo Switch Online will include unlimited game play on the Nintendo 64 and MegaDrive.
The title of Nintendo 64, which has continued to be rumored, is a tremendous lineup such as Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Ocarina of the Legend of Zelda, Sin and Punishment ~ Heir to the Earth ~ on the first day of service start.
The surprise mega drive was Sega’s Sonic 2, Puyo Puyo, Golden Ax, Bear Knuckle II, Gunstar Heroes, etc., as well as Konami’s Contra, Vampire Killer, Capcom’s Strider Hiryu, and Toaplan’s Warrior Arresta. 14 books can be played from the first day. Titles that represent Mega Drive and highly rated titles are lined up.
The following 14 titles have been announced as mega drive titles that “Nintendo Switch Online + additional pack” subscribers can play from the first day.
Strider Hiryu ☆ * 1
Puyo Puyo ☆ * 2
Golden Ax ★
Gunstar Heroes ★
Warrior Arresta ★
Phantasy Star ~ At the end of the millennium ~ ★
Lister the Shooting Star
Shining Force ~ The Legacy of the Gods ~ ★
The Super Shinobi II ☆

Streets of Rage II Requiem for Death Fight ★
VAMPIRE KILLER ★
Contra The Hardcore ★
Ecco the Dolphin ☆
★ Titles recorded on the Mega Drive Mini
☆ Titles recorded in one of the overseas version Mega Drive Mini
Perhaps because of the popular title that represents Mega Drive, there are eight works recorded in the miniature reprint game machine Mega Drive Mini domestic version.
Since it was the policy to record only one Mega Drive Mini in the case of the series, Puyo Puyo 2 and The Super Shinobi were selected in the domestic version, and the previous work and sequel were not included.
On the other hand, in the initial lineup of Nintendo Switch Online + additional packs, you can play the original Puyo Puyo, The Super Shinobi II, Strider Hiryu, and Ecco the Dolphin, which were recorded only in the overseas version of the Mega Drive Mini.
On the contrary, it was Lister the Shooting Star that was not included in any edition of Megadora Mini. It’s hard to get because it’s sold as an assortment of past Megadora software, Steam’s classic collection, and separately! It’s not, but it’s a title that has a high reputation.
Although there are many duplicates with the Megadora Mini, Nintendo Switch Online has the advantages of being able to carry around with Switch at any time, being able to use rewinding as well as state saving, and being easy to screenshot and share.
If you support online like NES and SNES works, you will be able to play multiplayer such as Golden Ax, Gunstar Heroes, and Streets of Rage II over the Internet.
The titles of Mega Drive that can be played with Nintendo Switch Online + additional packs will be gradually expanded even after the service starts.
* 1 The arcade version is on sale as additional content for Capcom Arcade Stadium. 10 title pack 1500 yen
* 2 The arcade version is being distributed as SEGA AGES for 999 yen.
