We’ve only just got a fantastic new Kirby game with Kirby and the Forgotten Land, but there’s never enough in our book, and thankfully we’ve got some Nintendo Switch Online Kirby to satiate our massive appetites. We’re ready to inhale this classic N64 game like the adorable orb himself, as Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards will arrive on NSO very soon.

But when does Nintendo Switch Online Kirby 64 arrive? The latest addition to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack library launches on May 20, 2022, so just a short week from now. This only leaves Pokémon Snap from the initial announcement to be added to the current library of Nintendo Switch Online N64 games, so with any luck, we’ll begin to receive some other N64 games in just over a month.

Fans (me) are clamouring for some of the classic Rare titles like Goldeneye 64, Diddy Kong Racing, and Perfect Dark. While lesser-known titles like Pokémon Puzzle League, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, NBA Jam, Wave Race 64, and Pilotwings, all deserve a little more love once the obvious crowd is delivered. What N64 titles do you want to see on the NSO line-up next?

Inhale the trailer below like a greedy little Kirby, and you’ll be happier than a waddle dee in a bandana.
