Pokémon Puzzle League Joins Nintendo Switch Online on July 15

It’s time to reclaim your Puzzle Master title and become the very best (like no one ever was!) as the critically acclaimed Pokémon Puzzle League Nintendo 64 video game is set to be re-released on the Nintendo Switch Online service on July 15. A new trailer for the game was unveiled showcasing the retro anime footage made exclusively for the title.

Meanwhile in Japan, instead of getting Pokémon Puzzle League, which was never released in the country, the island nation will get the RPG titles Custom Robo and its sequel Custom Robo V2, both of which were never released outside of Japan. This marks the first time Japan has gotten an exclusive game on Nintendo Switch Online’s Nintendo 64 app, with the western app marking its first exclusive title with Dr. Mario 64.

Pokémon Puzzle League is the first game to come to the Nintendo 64 app of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service that wasn’t previously announced. The service launched as an expanded tier to the NSO service, bringing Nintendo 64 games and Sega Genesis (also known as the Sega Mega Drive everywhere but North America) for the much-expanded price of US$49.99 annually.
