Retro takes Switch firmware update to a new level

The Switch Online + Expansion Pack paves the way for some games on SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive and Nintendo 64.


Nintendo has announced the firmware version of Switch, version 13.1.0, which introduces support for the Switch Online + Expansion Pack in addition to stability improvements.

Switch Online may be familiar, as you can subscribe to the service for a while, which costs € 20 a year, but the Expansion Pack associated with it is already a novelty and paves the way for many games released for Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive consoles for another € 20 a year. . This is also why new firmware is needed because it includes the emulator on which applications designed for old consoles run.

Of course, Nintendo will expand its current lineup later, and perhaps the performance of the emulators may also improve. This would be necessary, as current reports show that players are not too excited about the level of quality on offer. Most criticism is about high input lag and graphics issues, but managing individual titles is also far from ideal. However, the initiative can catch retro fans if it matures sufficiently.
