Own the Switch? Soon you’ll discover a deeper selection of classic NES and NES games to enjoy. Nintendo announced that it’ll release another four games to premium subscribers later this month.
Titles joining the Nintendo Switch Online library include Rygar, Wild Guns, Operation Logic Bomb, and Panel de Pon. Rygar hit the NES in 1987, and the rest of Nintendo’s additions are SNES games first released in the early-to-mid 1990s. It’s also worth noting that Panel de Pon never earned a proper release in the United States. Nintendo sold the Gunpei Yokoi-produced game as Tetris Attack in the U.S., as well as other countries, and borrowed characters from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island.
Both the Switch and the Switch Lite can dive into the entire catalog, which debuted in late 2018.
Gamers are still waiting to see if N64 and GameCube titles hit the Switch ecosystem, but at least Nintendo remains committed to a steady flow of NES and SNES choices. Nintendo also has several new releases to offer, including Animal Crossing: New Horizons, to satisfy Switch owners through the spring and into the summer. It’ll release Paper Mario: The Origami King in July.
You’ll discover the latest entrants available through Nintendo Switch Online on May 20. Nintendo charges for access, but Nintendo Switch Online only costs $19.99 per year. In addition to the library of NES and SNES games, the subscription unlocks online play, cloud saving, and special offers. Switch owners typically sign up for Nintendo Switch Online due to all these features, so if you’re not enrolled today, it’s worth checking out just to take advantage of an 82-game catalog of classics.
