Currently, iconic titles such as Mario Kart 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64 and more are part of the expanding catalog. During this week’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced the addition of nine more titles.

By the end of this year, Pilotwings 64, Mario Party and Mario Party 2 are all launching.
