Three new games added to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack


Nintendo 64 fans will be pleased today as they turn on their Switch and check out Nintendo Switch Online. Today, 1080 Snowboarding, Jet Force Gemini, and Harvest Moon 64 are added to the Expansion pack.

The number of hours I put into 1080 snowboarding brings back so many great memories, and I can't wait to share those memories with my kid.


In Harvest Moon 64, you've inherited your grandfather's farm near the quaint Flower Bud village. As the new farmer in town, you'll have your work cut out for you and a bounty of activities to engage in. Clear the land, till the soil, and then plant, water, and sell your crops for profit. Raise and care for livestock, including cows, chickens and sheep. Walk about town and visit the shops while getting to know the other townsfolk. You can even find someone special to start a family with. Watch the seasons roll by, bringing new challenges, festivities and sights to see.


Grab your snowboard and prepare to look cool while shredding down the steep, snowy inclines of the 1080º Snowboarding game. Choose from five different boarders, each with their attributes and special tricks, and then head down the mountain across several game modes, including Match Race, Trick Attack and 2P VS. Play solo or online and land impressive tricks, including the titular 1080º (ten eighty). Feel the sensation of speed and brave the cold – right from the warmth of your living room.

Face a dark threat from deep space in Jet Force Gemini, which was developed by Rare and originally released on the Nintendo 64 system in 1999. The galaxy is being infested by the evil Mizar and his horde of Drones. Together, the Jet Force Gemini team must travel in search of Mizar's' lair to save the day. But can Juno, Vela and their faithful dog Lupus rout the galactic threat before it's too late? Experience the interstellar adventure solo, explore more than ten cosmic locations, or pair up with a friend to tackle evil Drones in two-player co-op mode. Plus, up to four players can vie for supremacy in Battle Mode.

These additions look like fun for the whole family, and I can't wait to shred in 1080. If you don't have a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership, click the link, and you are all set.

Let us know in the comments what you're looking forward to playing out the three new games.
