A trusted Nintendo insider has teased a handful of new Nintendo 64 titles coming to Nintendo Switch Online in the future. Although Nintendo itself has already revealed the first wave of N64 games hitting the platform sometime in October, this insider in question has now given us a better idea of what titles might hit the service in the coming months.
