F-Zero X Joins Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pack Later This Week


Nintendo’s N64 library for the Switch Online Expansion Pack service may have been a tad underwhelming on release, but it’s already improved a lot since then.

Not only has Nintendo gone to the effort of fixing a number of issues associated with the emulation of certain games, but it’s also bolstered the service with a number no classics. We’ve already seen games like Banjo-Kazooie and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and next up is the futuristic racer F-Zero X, starring Captain Falcon and co.

This absolute classic will be arriving later this week on 11th March. Over on its social channels, Nintendo has reminded Expansion Pack members how they’ll now be able to race against friends online:

If you haven’t already played F-Zero X, here’s a bit more about the game (along with a trailer above), courtesy of Nintendo.

“Choose from 30 different hover-car racers, including updated versions of the Blue Falcon and other vehicles from the original F-Zero™ game, and get ready to hit the acceleration! Race to the finish line on tracks that twist and turn through the air. However, you will have to avoid the other 29 cars on the track or else face the consequences! If you’re in a competitive mood, try to win a Grand Prix Cup, get the fastest lap time in a Time Trial, or destroy the competition in a Death Race. You can also challenge three friends in the Versus mode. With five separate play modes, hidden vehicles and courses, and an excellent soundtrack, F-Zero X is a worthy racing title to return to!”
