Mario Golf 64 Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack April 15, 2022 release date

Mario Golf Tees Up on Nintendo Switch Online Next Week

The drip feed of monthly Nintendo 64 titles on Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack continues. Last month, we were graced with F-Zero X. Now, this evening, Nintendo of America announced the next game that will be joining the service. The beloved Mario Golf will hit Nintendo Switch Online next week on April 15.

Here’s the official Mario Golf Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack announcement via Twitter:

There’s also a trailer, but it’s only in Japanese at the moment:

As always, players need an Expansion Pass membership in order to access the 1999 Mario sports game. It’s pretty pricey at $49.99 per year for an individual membership and $79.99 for the family membership (which is less money if you have friends chip in for the program). Whether the infrequent updates to Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis applications are worth it is up to you. Although, some will say it is because you get access to the new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tracks, as well as the Animal Crossing: New Horizons DLC.

Regardless, it isn’t out of the realm of possibility that Mario Golf could get the same modern quality-of-life improvements other games have received. F-Zero X received online multiplayer, so maybe Mario Golf is next. Because nothing defuses tension among competitive gamers like being on opposite sides of the globe!
