A pair of fast-paced N64 titles are set to join the Switch’s lineup

Even if you’re an N64 fan, you might not have heard of the games that are joining the Online + Expansion Pack platform.


Nintendo has done a pretty good job of regularly infusing its Nintendo Switch Online service with new games. Base subscribers have gotten a healthy dose of those, while members of the higher “Online + Expansion Pack” tier have done pretty well too. If you somehow don’t know what that is, it’s a level of membership that adds even more consoles to the system’s ‘virtual console’ line. And one of those, of course, is the N64.

We’ve so-far seen a bunch of games hit for that branch of the service as well, with names both big and small. The just announced drop of upcoming titles though, is definitely in the latter category, with Extreme-G and Iggy’s Wrecking Balls. Both games have racing as a core4 concept, but the two are as varied as night and day. While Extreme-G is a futuristic, high-speed roller coaster ride, Iggy’s Wrecking Balls stars a cute lil’ dragon and some vertical (and spherical) racing action. As a head.

As of right now, it looks like neither title has been posted, but stay tuned. If we know Nintendo both should be up and ready to play in short order.

  • Extreme-G – Fans of all things fast, start your engines! Push your cyber cycle to the limit and zoom through 12 futuristic looping, twisting racetracks. But watch out, because these battle bikes pack a wallop – each is loaded with weapons, and your rivals are not afraid to use ’em! Beat your opponents to the punch and pick up a bevy of powerups in an attempt to top the rankings and avoid total wreckage. Plus, up to four players can settle the racing score locally** or online.* Whether playing solo or with friends, Extreme-G sets the course for some serious g-force!
  • Iggy’s Reckin’ Balls – Who needs to race in a vehicle when you’re spherical? Ball out with Iggy and his eclectic reckin’ crew as you smash and swing your way through vertical races set on a series of towering tracks. Take shortcuts, zip through loops and avoid enemies bent on stopping your ascent in this winner-wreck-all competition for up to four players**.
