Nintendo Switch Online Nintendo 64

During the most recent Nintendo Direct, it was announced that Nintendo 64 games would be coming to the Nintendo Switch Online service. Recent patent documentation suggested that a new Nintendo 64 controller would be released, so this comes as less of a surprise. However, unlike the NES and SNES that are playable with the current online service, Nintendo 64 games will require a subscription to a more expensive service to be played. Details on the pricing for this have not yet been revealed. The service will be called Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.

Nintendo Switch Online Sega Genesis

More surprisingly, select SEGA Genesis games will also be coming to this higher priced service. There will be new wireless controllers for Switch that reproduce the original controller for each console. Only Nintendo Switch Online members can purchase these controllers. They will retail for $49.99 each.

Nintendo Switch Online Controllers

As with the current library of NES and SNES games available with the basic tier of Nintendo Switch Online, each of these two consoles will get a Switch app which gives you access to the available library of games. The games are downloaded to your system and then emulated in the app. The emulators include the ability to create save states and rewind gameplay.
