Slot 35 could be:
  • Wipeout 64
  • Worms Armageddon
  • WWF Attitude/No Mercy/War Zone/Wrestlemania 2000
  • Xena: Warrior Princess

Or World Driver Championship, which is one of the better looking Nintendo 64 games thanks to Boss Game Studios' custom microcode - they knew how to dig into the hardware just like Factor 5 and Rare.

i have 50 characters and i'll use them, all of 'em
Although I'm sad at no Konami games on the announced batch, I'm also kinda excited to play games like 1080, Excitebike 64 and Pilotwings 64 that I've never played before and I wouldn't have bought in the old VC format.

Ok so now that we have 18 games on the system and 9 more confirmed, the rest of the lineup is starting to pan out. I put astrisks for the games added after the data mine. Those spots shouldn't be considered set in stone, but a lot should make sense, especially 7-17 since everything fits in nicely.

Just a note, but your list has failed to include any of the JP-only titles (Custom Robo, Custom Robo V2 and Harvest Moon 64/Bokujō Monogatari 2).

Truthfully I was under the impression that the list that Mondo datamined was only for the North American/European side, because that would explain the lack of a slot between Goldeneye and Kirby 64 for Harvest Moon (again, assuming it's still alphabetical and wasn't scrambled after the datamine)

...unless it's using the Japanese name, in which case there really is only one slot available between 1080 Snowboarding and Dr. Mario

The original list image included the Japanese titles, and the IDs for each region - which would imply that it's a universal list for all versions of the app:

...damn.

Well I really hope they don't intend on stopping after 38 games, because I don't envy who has to choose between Banjo-Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Diddy Kong Racing and DK64 as what will fill that final slot at the beginning of the list 😬


E: Mondo has since clarified that we can have more games beyond the 38; I'm silly lol

Mega Drive proved to be even more interesting.

At least 52!

And if you needed more proof that at least one additional NSO platform is coming, look at the first digit of the game IDs. SNES was 2, N64 was 3, MD is 5. Essentially; Game Boy is coming.

With tonight'supdate, we are up to 33 Genesis games. So at minimum there are 19 more games co in to the service.

Jokes on us, 4 is going to be Sega Master System

With Mega CD games going to the next Mega Drive Mini, I really hope we get that on NSO some day. Maybe once Sega have made their money from the mini console, they reach a deal with Nintendo again.

I don't think licencing is the hurdle that would block Mega CD games; but rather file sizes. Even on a system like this CD roms take up a decent chunk of space, more than even N64 games in some cases. There are possible solutions though; they could choose not to care and just make the app filesize noticably large, or they could make Mega CD an optional download via "DLC".

I think they'll wait a decent amount of time after the Mini 2 before even considering adding them though so we'll have to wait and see what they do.

And just like Factor 5‘s games on N64, it has been a bitch to emulate correctly.

Aside for that, this game is a beast, easily one of the most beautiful N64 game, period (played in hires widescreen).

SEGA CD and 32x (at least the three titles that would probably get added) would be cool, but I think those systems are low on the priority list right now.

If anything, I just want to listen to the boot music for Sega CD all day long lol.

Hi Everyone, so we have made a few changes. The original NSO thread that was used for friends codes has been combined with the Expansion Pass thread.. The same rules apply where you have to reply to see the list in post 2. Please feel free to post your info so I can add it to post 2.

Fami-user name / Nintendo user name / Friend code

Going forward we will keep using this for ongoing NSO discussion. New threads will still pop up for news!


P.S- new poll.

I did think it a tad odd when I joined that the two threads were seperate from eachother.

So tomorrow should be the last day to announce the monthly N64 game, right? They always announce the game a week in advance, and next week is the las Friday of September. Let's hope we can have Goldeneye, but I imagine if they were going to announce the date, they would have done it at the direct.

3 hours or it’s likely over for this month.

It would be the first time they skip a month since the N64 launched. The only reason I could understand that is if they are going to launch more consoles on October. Let's see.

To be fair, they did skip November last year. Paper Mario was the first N64 game added after the original launch in October, in December.

In this case, I think it's possible they're using the ND announcement of the new roadmap for the rest of this year and the first half of next year as an excuse to take a break until next month.

Maybe, but it would be a bit weird even if we know there are more games coming. I'm really curious with Goldeneye, as if they skip September they will have 3 games for 3 remaining months. Let's see if something happens in a few hours.

So no announcement today. The only possible game I can see now is Goldeneye this month if Nintendo/Microsoft need to synchronise and announce/launch it next week. But it seems probably that this will be the first month without a N64 game since past December.

Yeah I was right, we're not getting an N64 game month lol.

My prediction is that it will be a repeat of what they did the first time: they'll add Mario Party 1, 2 and Pilotwings 64 somewhere in October, November and December, and just like last year all of the other announced games, including GoldenEye, will be released up until July next year, which is probably where they'll release Harvest Moon last due to its JP only status while releasing a western exclusive game like Cruis'n USA on our service to compensate, just like what they did with the Custom Robos and Pokemon Puzzle League. Then they'll announce another intermediate game like Smash Bros., DK64, Ogre Battle 64 or something in August and then we'll get the road map for Year 3 at the September Direct next year.

Goldeneye could still be this year in the west, it seems to be something outside the normal release schedule

So it's been almost 2 weeks since the Direct and the "Coming Soon" announcement for Goldeneye.

When are we expecting it to release?

Sometime this year. I certainly wasn't expecting it to be announced the week of the week after the Direct. If it was, they would have just said the release date instead of coming soon.
