NSO Expansion Pack is broken as fans complain of frame rate issues and input lag

The launch of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack has not gone well, judging by the number of complaints on Twitter and Reddit.

The Expansion Pack for the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service, which adds support for N64 and Mega Drive games, is already controversial for its high price, so it really needed a problem free launch to justify its cost – but that’s not what’s happened.

In theory, adding support for two new formats shouldn’t cause any problem, since Nintendo Switch Online has been around for years now, and indeed there don’t seem to be any problems with the often-emulated Mega Drive games. N64 games are re-released far less often though and it’s them that are causing the problems.

The list of complaints varies greatly depending on the game but there are reports of frame rate issues in Mario Kart 64, Star Fox 64 and Yoshi’s Island, as well as controller input lag on the likes of Super Mario 64, Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, and Mario Kart 64.
