Nintendo has announced Nintendo Switch Online is adding the classic Wave Race 64 to its ongoing roster of subscription titles.
Here’s a new trailer for the game, which is being added to the service on August 19th:
Here’s a rundown on the game, via Nintendo:
Wave Race 64 is a fast and fluid racing game originally released shortly after the launch of the Nintendo 64 system in 1996. Choose from one of four watercraft racers, each with their own abilities and style, and try to capture glory in Championship Mode, whip around the tracks in Time Trials, pull off tricks in Stunt Mode or challenge a friend in 2P VS. Mode.*
Wave Race 64 features nine challenging courses set across scenic locales. Go airborne with dolphins on the golden shores of Sunset Bay, cruise under the bright lights and tall buildings of Twilight City, feel the crashing waves on Sunny Beach or chill out on the frigid waters of Glacier Coast, just to name a few. Plus, racing conditions will change with the weather, making the water choppy or covering the course with fog. The waves will even respond to the way that you and your rivals move!
Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online is part of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, a new subscription tier that launched in October 2021. It adds classic Nintendo 64 alongside Sega Genesis games to Nintendo’s online service.
