The Nintendo Switch’s paid subscription service got a whole lot more confusing this week with the release of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. The list of included games is currently restricted to N64 and Sega Mega Drive releases, with a specific selection available. We’ve listed all games in the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack below so you can judge whether it’s worth the extra monthly cash.

Mario Kart 8: Deluxe Booster Course Pass
Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscribers will also gain access to all six waves of the Mario Kart 8: Deluxe Booster Course Pass as they arrive. The new tracks are primarily made up of revamped levels from older Mario Kart Titles and the mobile release Mario Kart Tour, though Wave two did include an entirely new level as well. New waves will continue to be released up until the end of 2023.
Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion
Expansion Pack subscribers can also dive into the extended single player expansion for Splatoon 2 which features 80 new test facilities to ink up and navigate. Own this and you can also play as an Octoling in multiplayer as well.
What games are coming to the NSO+ Expansion Pack in the future?
In addition to the listed upcoming games listed above, recent datamining efforts by Mondo_Mega have revealed more than 30 titles planned for the Expansion Pack. These include Wave Race, the original Super Smash Bros., and the first three Mario Party titles.
In addition, more than 50 spaces for Mega Drive titles are listed. We can’t say when or even if all these games will be added for certain, but it seems very likely that Nintendo plans to steadily add extra content to the NSO+ Expansion Pack to keep people interested.
