Nintendo has added three more SNES and NES games to its Nintendo Switch Online collection, including Kirby’s Avalanche.
The 1995 puzzle game actually arrived under the title Kirby’s Ghost Trap in Europe. It’s essentially a reskin of the Super Puyo Puyo series, with Kirby and friends replacing the regular characters. Interestingly enough, it actually remains the only Kirby game never to see a release in its native Japan.
The second offering for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers is Fighter’s History. It’s a beat-em-up from Data East, and is probably most famous for being the subject of a lawsuit by Capcom. At the time, the latter thought the game was a bit too similar to their own Street Fighter II. However, the courts disagreed, feeling that any similarities were just broadly of the genre. Now you can decide for yourself.
Finally, Daiva Story 6: Imperial of Nirsartia is something of a wild card. It’s a kind of space-war simulation first released in 1986. You’ll have to travel from planet to planet, defeating armadas and then making planetfall. There the game turns into a side-scrolling shooter. It’s never received a Western release before, but you can check out some gameplay in the trailer below.
Kirby’s Avalanche, Fighter’s History and Daiva Story 6 are all available now under the Nintendo Switch Online tile on your console’s Home screen. Last week, Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack subscribers got to enjoy Pokémon Puzzle League from the N64.
