Pilotwings 64 Coming to Switch October 13

Pilotwings 64, one of the original launch titles for the Nintendo 64, is finally getting its day in the sun again. The game will release on the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack Nintendo 64 service on Thursday, October 13. This will be the 19th N64 title to hit the service in Japan. The previous game to release was Wave Race 64 in mid-August. You can see the Japanese trailer featuring tips and tricks for Pilotwings 64 below. 
Per usual, Nintendo has once again teamed up with Nintendo Dream magazine to bring a retro article from 64 Dream back to life digitally in PDF form. There is only one available this time, but it’s pretty comprehensive as it tells players about the Super Famicom version of Pilotwings as well as provide an overview of all the maps, vehicles, techniques and more. You can find that below.
