The Nintendo 64 games on the Switch are the faster 60Hz versions

When Nintendo recently confirmed that Nintendo 64 games are on their way to the Switch, the company said nothing about which versions of the games are coming. Many fans expressed concern that it would be about the weaker PAL versions, but this week the good news came from Nintendo.

In a message via the European Nintendo account, the company confirms that all Nintendo 64 games run at 60Hz on the Switch. This is in comparison with the original 50Hz variants that were available in Europe, which are both slower and often had thick, black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.

The article continues below the Twitter message.

Nintendo further points out that a selection of the games offers the opportunity to choose the PAL version, for those who may wish to do so. These include several language selection options in the game.

Otherwise, the Japanese game maker has not said anything about either the launch date or price. We know that the new Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription will arrive at the end of October and that it will cost more than the standard subscription, but the final details have not yet been prepared.

Games included in the subscription include Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Mario Kart 64. Various Sega Mega Drive games are also included in the package, and Nintendo promises to expand the library eventually.
