Nintendo is adding Paper Mario to its Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online library on December 10. This is the first new game to join the program since its launch earlier this fall. Paper Mario was one of the previously announced games that came with the Nintendo Switch Online $ 50 per year expansion pack. But it looks like instead of deleting them all at once, Nintendo is going to deploy them as one file.

Other new games confirmed for the Nintendo 64 online that have yet to be released include the following:

  • The Legend of Zelda: The Mask of Majora
  • F-Zero X
  • Mario golf
  • Pokémon Snap
  • Kirby 64: Crystal Shards
  • Banjo-Kazooie

Nintendo hasn’t said when these games will arrive. But in a press release for Paper Mario, 21, the publisher said he had “more on the way.”

Paper Mario joins the existing library of nine Nintendo 64 games:

Paper Mario debuted in August 2000 near the end of Nintendo 64’s life. Developer Intelligent Systems designed the game as an extension of Super Nintendo’s Super Mario RPG. Like its predecessor, Paper Mario features turn-based combat and substantial storytelling (for a Mario game). But unlike the Super Nintendo game, players team up with one partner character at a time.

Many fans consider GameCube’s Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door to be the pinnacle of the series, but the original Paper Mario shares much of the same DNA.

If Nintendo releases one game per month for the N64 online service, it is expected to complete the library towards the end of President Justin Bieber’s second term. Yes, we are going to amend the Constitution to let it run.
