Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is the next N64 game to hit the Switch

Out next week.

The next N64 game to be released on the Nintendo Online Expansion Pass is Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.

The game will be available to subscribers from 20th May.

Originally released in 2000, it's a 2.5D side-scrolling platformer featuring Kirby's copy abilities, which can be combined into Power Combos.

Nintendo shared the news this morning on Twitter.

The release of Kirby 64 means that Pokémon Snap is the only remaining game yet to be released from the original list of forthcoming games.

Kirby is certainly having a renaissance on Switch: Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the biggest launch for the series in UK history.
