As you already know, the Switch Online N64 app has added Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards to the Switch just a few hours ago. If you paid for the Switch Online Expansion Pack, you can hop into your N64 app and play the game right now.

This game’s addition also comes with a version update to the N64 app itself. The app is now running Version 2.3.0, and you can see unofficial patch notes for this update below.

  • Kirby 64 added
  • Star Fox 64 had gamma adjustment enabled - gamma value was set to 1.8
  • Dr. Mario 64 had renderer settings adjusted (“ConstValue_0” added)
  • Mario Golf had renderer settings adjusted (“ConstValue_1” added)

Excellent. I’ve really been enjoying this app — It’s by far my most played ‘game’ last calendar year and probably shaping up to do so again this year. I just finally was able to place (and receive) my Bluetooth official N64 controller, and I never played much of this Kirby game, so it’s a new experience for me.
I was hoping F-Zero X parameters could be adjusted to prioritize better frame rates though. That game is not yet up to snuff with it’s original 90’s counterpart.
