Pilotwings 64 lands on Nintendo Switch Online next week

Not at all Boe-ing.

Get ready to take to the skies, as on 13th October the 1996 classic Pilotwings 64 will be jetting on to consoles via Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.

In Pilotwings 64, players will be able to get their hands on a variety of airborne machines as they complete various tasks across its worlds.

This includes shooting missiles at a giant robot, as you can see in the trailer below (FYI, it is all oddly sensual).
