Nintendo Switch Online Games for December 2021 Lineup

Nintendo has announced its lineup of free games for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers in December 2021. This month you get: Paper Mario on N64.

No new NES or SNES titles since July 2021, and after the new Expansion Pack subscription game systems skipped November 2021, December doesn’t even bring a new Sega Genesis title. Even 1 N64 title seems sparse. Seriously disappointing to get so few new retro games every two months. Nintendo needs to step it up to at least one or two new games on every retro game system monthly! And that’s coming from someone who adores N64, heck, I didn’t even upgrade to Expansion Pack yet despite ordering two new wireless N64 controllers. 🙁

December 2021’s 1 Nintendo Switch Online N64 game: On Friday, December 10th 2021, Paper Mario will be available to play anytime and anywhere, only for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members.

Watch the trailer showing May’s N64 game:

  • Paper Mario 64 (N64)

It’s a paper caper! After Bowser steals the Star Rod and kidnaps Princess Peach, Mario plots to rescue the seven Star Spirits and free the Mushroom Kingdom from the Koopa’s rule. As Mario travels from the tropical jungles of Lavalava Island to the frosty heights of Shiver Mountain, he’ll need all the help he can get. Master the abilities of the seven Star Spirits and the other allies joining the adventure to aid our hero on the battlefield. There are over 50 Badges to locate that, when equipped, will grant special abilities and powerful attacks. The turn-based battle system will make fighting Bowser’s baddies equal parts strategy and timing. Discover over 100 items, mix them together, and cook up fantastic creations to keep Mario going strong in battle. Close the book on Bowser’s story before his evil deeds turn the world upside down and make it so only HIS wishes come true!
