In case you somehow missed it earlier, Nintendo has finally rolled out a “Mature” rated Nintendo 64 app for Switch Online users here in the West. This was announced alongside the return of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and legendary Rare title Perfect Dark – “now with online multiplayer”.

This app is an additional panel in your main menu and there’s no way to integrate these games with existing N64 versions, but that’s the way it is. On the more positive side, this means that more mature Nintendo 64 titles could one day make their way to the Expansion Pack service (Come on, conker’s bad day for fur).

The “mature” app debuted on Switch in Japan last November, alongside the release of GoldenEye 007 and Jet Force Gemini. Remarkably, these games have managed to avoid being added to Nintendo’s mature version of the app here in the West.

To download the second Switch Online N64 app, you’ll need to head to the Switch eShop, go to the NSO section and you’ll see it next to the current app. Of course, you’ll also need access to the Expansion Pack subscription tier to play these games on your Switch.
