I'm not sure about F-Zero Expansion because I don't think there is an english version.
However OoT Master Quest, even if already released on GC and 3DS, could be in.

Hope none of you were expecting a virtual console on Switch anytime soon.

By soon I mean the next year or two.

Not having Rare's games will cut whatever enjoyment id get out of this by half.

Unless they REALLY go all in and put expensive ass games on it like Clayfighter Sculptors Cut or Bomberman 64 Second Attack.

Like the 3rd party support would have to be unreal to even justify buying an N64 mini. N64DD games as well.

If they could get the Goemon games I'd be even more hyped

If they somehow could get the N64DD version of F-Zero X I'd be screaming, but I'm probably asking for too much here :V

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon is such an underrated game that still holds up compared to so many other N64 games. Fuckin' hidden treasure right there.

See, technically, most of the rest of DKR's cast (ie Tiptup, Bumper, Pipsy, etc) are owned by Rare/Microsoft, too. It's just that they're so minor in the grand scheme of things that Nintendo didn't give a shit. If Tiptup had his own game series like Banjo and Conker do, he would of been given the boot as well.

Edit: Forgot Star Fox 64 and Donkey Kong 64. That's 17 already. Yoshi's Story. Make that 18.

That's the 15 (17) I can think of with no third parties and no Rare. This will be interesting! Hopefully it'll be 20 (maybe a little more pricey than the SNES) and we get those too.

The various wrestling games could be included. If Nintendo can make a deal with Microsoft a lot of the older Rare games (they released Rare Replay a few years ago and this could net them extra money) like Jet Force Gemini, Banjo Kazooie, Blast Corps etc. Then there are things like Starcraft 64, Turok , Doom, Mega Man 64 (Legends), Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, Quest 64, Bomberman 64, Star Wars Rogue Squadron, Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, Ogre Battle, etc. There are many others as well.

There are a LOT of great games that could be on a Nintendo 64 Mini and you don't have to focus just on Nintendo games.

Excluding Rare, there's
- Mischief Makers
- Rogue Squadron
- Both Goemons
- Ogre 64
- Snowboard Kids
- Harvest Moon
- Space Station Silicon Valley
- Turok
- Wonder Project J2 (won't happen, but I got it used recently, and it's really nice)
- Beetle Adventure Racing...

There's a couple of those available on VC, so you never know...

Animal Crossing 64 was basically re-released on GC, and it's worse than more recent games...

The Starfox 2 equivalent in the west should be F-Zero X: Expansion kit (or something 64DD related)

Yeah, these look more like icons for a Virtual Console store or service more than anything else.

Though the lack of GCN is disheartening...though not entirely unexpected, since people have discussed the fact that the Switch doesn't have analog triggers and the GCN did (well, shoulder buttons really) and potential issues for porting titles over.

While I agree (I still think Tennis 64 is the best Mario Tennis on consoles), it'll be a nightmare not only to get the console, but the pads!

I can see Smash community going nuts about a mini-console with Smash, especially if they can hack it to include some unofficial patches...

Honestly just excited for an N64 controller with a Wii controller port. Playing N64 virtual console games will be much more pleasant. C buttons do not feel right mapped to an analog stick.

Edit: oh man! They might include a DD game or two. Come on custom f zero levels!

Nah they can't narrow it down to 10 even WITHOUT Rare and 3rd Parties. They will simply up the price and also make money off controllers.
