Shown off during the last general Nintendo Direct broadcast, Pilotwings 64 was promised as an upcoming Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack library addition. Nintendo has now updated fans as to when the seminal Nintendo 64 title will finally launch on the service: October 13. As has become the norm, there’s a new trailer for the game coming to the service, but this one is a bit… different. Just listen to the voiceover and you’ll understand:

The silken tones of the narrator are absolutely great. Nintendo should consider hiring him for future Switch Online trailers. Will you be playing Pilotwings 64 next week? Tell us in the comments!

    That may be the most flawless voice and script for a retro release announcement we’ll ever witness. State of the art 1996 gameplay meets 2022 self-aware humor.

    Pilotwings 64 is my favorite in the (admittedly small) series by a mile, and was the perfect compliment to Mario 64 at launch. I have given up hope of an HD remake, but the original presented in a sharper resolution is more than welcome.

    I tend to prefer emulation on the Deck nowadays. The Switch’s slow trickle release approach does nothing for me. (Well, fine; this magestic trailer would not exist otherwise, so … I will concede that one point. ;^) Still, I’ll keep my (accessible, backup-able) save files on a platform which isn’t guaranteed to vanish in the future.
