The Nintendo Switch Online collection continues to expand with three Nintendo 64 titles recently added. Whether you’re into farming sims, sporting action, or shooters, these latest three titles bring a variety of classic gameplay.
First up is Harvest Moon 64, a title from 1999 that was released in Japan and North America at the time. This early entry in the series sees the farming simulator in its most pure form, the goal being to restore and maintain an abandoned farm. There are plenty of side quests to keep you busy as you learn the ropes of life on the farm.
Meanwhile, sports enthusiasts will get a kick out of 1080 Snowboarding, a 1998 title published by Nintendo. You control one of five snowboarders in several modes, including trick, race, and traning modes. It’s all about performing the best jumps as you glide along the snow.
Finally, Jet Force Gemini was developed by the talented Rare studio, releasing for the Nintendo 64 back in 1999. This third-person shooter follows three members of a galactic law enforcement team as they try to stop a horde of drones. Jet Force Gemini features solo play, two-player co-op, and even a four-player battle mode.
Check out the trailer for all three titles below. Were you a fan of the originals? Let us know which one is your fave of the pack!
