F-Zero X joins Nintendo Switch Online lineup this week

By Jack Taylor – 9 March 2022

F-Zero X is the next title to join the Nintendo 64 library of Nintendo Switch Online games, and is coming to the service on Friday.

F-Zero X launched for the Nintendo 64 in 1998, building on the success of F-Zero for the SNES. It included an expanded roster of 30 racers and vehicles, and a total of 24 tracks. Fans will be able to rediscover the game - or discover it for the first time - when it joins the Nintendo 64 selection of games on 11 March.

Like several other Nintendo Switch Online games, it'll also support online multiplayer, letting players join up to three of their Nintendo Switch friends online in races.

Nintendo 64 (and SEGA Mega Drive / Genesis) games are available to players with the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription, which also includes the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Paradise expansion and the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: Booster Course Pass at no extra cost. Coincidentally, pre-loads for the Booster Course Pass also begin on 11 March, ahead of its release on 18 March.
