The “authentic” experience will also be available for selected games.
European Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will get the best Nintendo 64 experience with the expansion pack, which will be released later this month.
During Nintendo Direct last month, European video showed the games at 50 Hz, which was the European (“PAL”) standard until the advent of HD television in the late 2000s – and is significantly slower than presentation in North America and America Japan (“NTSC”). Nintendo of Europe announced today that there will be a 60 Hz option for NSO games that does not require the North American version of the application to be downloaded.

The 60 Hz versions will only be in English: playing in other supported languages requires playing at 50 Hz.
