Original article [Fri 8th Jul, 2022 02:45 BST]: When the N64 library was originally announced for the Switch Online Expansion Pack, Nintendo teased some other game – special for Japan. These titles are the N64 jewels Custom Robots and Custom Robot V2.
Now, along with today’s news Pokémon Puzzle League will be added to the service on July 15, Nintendo has revealed Japan will (instead) receive the previously announced custom Robo games on the same day.
To play them, you’ll need to have access to a Switch Online Expansion Pack subscription and also a Japanese Nintendo Switch account – to download the N64 app for this region. If you are interested in checking out these titles, check out our handy Nintendo Life guide for assistance.
Custom Robo games are the last titles we know of coming to the Switch Online N64 service in the future. From now on, it’s a game of guesswork – and based on the unexpected revelation of Pokémon Puzzle League these days, that means any N64 game could be the next game. Having said this, there’s still a good chance it could be something we’ve seen in previous generations of Wii U eShop and Wii Channel.
