Mario Golf debuted on Nintendo Switch Online today, and GameXplain has now put together a graphics comparison that includes Wii U and N64. We first get to see how things stack up between Switch and N64 before moving over to Switch and Wii U.

It’s clear that Mario Golf produces the clearest image on Switch. For one thing, the resolution the highest. The action was also much darker for the Wii U Virtual Console release, which has been fixed this time around.

After an investigation into auto-renewal practices by the Competition and Markets Authority, Nintendo has made a change to Nintendo Switch Online.

The lineup of Splatoon 2 icons has been refreshed, with Nintendo now offering a second wave.

Splatoon 2 designs were offered as of last week. You’ll notice that the icons include characters, stages, and more. If you have an active Nintendo Switch Online membership, you can redeem them for My Nintendo points. Each one costs either 5 or 10 Platinum Points.

The Expansion Pass tier for Nintendo Switch Online kicked off a few months ago, and we’ve seen a number of classic N64 games added to the service since then. Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, and Banjo-Kazooie are among the included titles. Mario Golf is also following next week.

Nintendo should continue adding more N64 titles to Switch Online throughout 2022. With that said, what would you like to see on there? Let us know in the comments below.
