Nintendo has been on a roll lately with additions to the Nintendo Switch Online retro libraries. It seems that the company is no longer doing a sporadic drip-feed of content, with at least one retro game being added to a retro library every couple of weeks or so. And Nintendo has decided to continue that trend tonight.
Nintendo has announced that Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards will be coming to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack on May 20th. Nintendo of America tweeted the news on their official Twitter account, so you can see the tweet down below.
Nice. I remember I got this when it first came out, there was one shard I could never find- it was the last level of Ripple Star where it’s room after room of enemies with curved staircases between them. There’s one room where you need to hit the center of the floor with a flaming arrow (fire + needle combo) to reveal its location. As a kid I never figured it out.
Kirby is here to save the NSO!
Why did this take so long tho could have been a perfect time in with forgotten land it’s honestly my most wanted n64 game along with paper Mario 64, honestly can’t wait to see what other Kirby goodies will come out this year
Hmm.. very tempting nintendo. But I think I’ll keep holding off on that expansion pass for now
