Pokemon Puzzle League is the latest N64 game to join Nintendo Switch Online.


Nintendo has added another classic Nintendo 64 game to the Switch Online library. Pokemon Puzzle League is available on the Nintendo Switch Online plus Expansion Pack service starting today, July 15.

Originally released in 2000, Pokemon Puzzle League is a Pokemon-themed spin on the classic Panel de Pon series, following Ash Ketchum and other characters from the Pokemon anime as they challenge other trainers in block-clearing puzzle battles.

This marks the second N64 Pokemon game to come to the Switch Online service, following the original Pokemon Snap last month. It's also the seventeenth N64 game to hit the service to date since it launched last October. Nintendo says additional N64 titles will continue to be added in the future.

The Switch Online plus Expansion Pack plan is a premium tier of Nintendo's online service. Along with all the features of the base service, it offers additional perks like access to a library of classic N64 and Sega Genesis games, as well as select Nintendo Switch DLC like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Booster Course Pass and Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Happy Home Paradise expansion.

An individual Expansion Pack subscription costs $50 per year, while a family plan costs $80. The latter covers up to eight Nintendo Accounts across multiple systems.
