Nintendo has confirmed that all of the N64 games that are being added to its expanded Nintendo Switch Online service will be playable in 60 Hz. This is excellent news for Nintendo users in the UK, who had been worrying whether they’d be stuck with PAL versions of the game running at 50 Hz. That won’t be the case, but select games will include the option to play the original European PAL version.
