The Nintendo Direct today had some good news for retro game fans, with nine Nintendo 64 games confirmed to be coming to the Nintendo Switch soon. The games are available to those who subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, and will be released throughout the remainder of 2022 and 2023.

The most significant of these reveals is 1997’s GoldenEye 007, which got given its own teaser at the end of the N64 game reveals. The Switch will be receiving an exclusive online multiplayer mode, which the Xbox release will not be receiving.
