The Crystal Shards will be available via the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pass subscription on May 20.
Nintendo has added Nintendo 64 games to the service on a monthly basis. The Crystal Shards first appeared in 2000.

While many Nintendo properties changed to 3D that generation, The Crystal Shards is still a 2D affair (granted, using 3D models). However, until Kirby and the Forgotten Lands were introduced on the Switch earlier this year, we wouldn''t get a full 3D Kirby platformer.
