F-Zero X Is Speeding On To the N64's Nintendo Switch Online Library

F-Zero X will become the 13th Nintendo 64 game available on Switch when it arrives on March 11.

Players can enjoy the fast-paced futuristic racing as part of part of the Switch Online Expansion Pack which costs $49.99 and is the only way to play N64 games on the console.

F-Zero X features more than 30 unique hover-vehicles including the legendary Blue Falcon and lets users race them solo or with friends in Grand Prix tournaments.

It joins 12 other N64 games available through the Expansion Pass including the recently added The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask which arrived on the service in late February.

The full range of N64 titles currently available on Switch is: Banjo-Kazooie, Dr. Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Mario Tennis, Paper Mario, Sin & Punishment, Star Fox 64, Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Win Back: Covert Operations, and Yoshi’s Story.

The Expansion Pass also grants access to SEGA Genesis games alongside DLC for Nintendo titles including Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Happy Home Paradise and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Booster Course Pass, which doubles the number of tracks eventually available in the game from 48 to 96.

In our 9/10 review from back in the day, IGN said "F-Zero X is another proof that nobody does sequels like Nintendo" as "the developers kicked out everything that stood in the way of perfectly-tuned gameplay."
