SNES games have finally arrived to Nintendo Switch Online

Today, a catalogue of 20 classic SNES games have been added as part of Nintendo’s Switch Online membership.

In the September 4 Nintendo Direct, entertainment planning and development head Shinya Takahashi announced the news. Up to now, only NES titles were available for players who were nostalgic for the classics, but a whopping 20 games have been re-released for Switch. These are:

  • Brawl Brothers
  • Breath of Fire
  • Demon's Crest
  • F-Zero
  • Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics
  • Kirby's Dream Course
  • Kirby's Dream Land 3
  • Pilotwings
  • Star Fox
  • Stunt Race FX
  • Super EDF Earth Defense Force
  • Super Ghouls'n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Puyo Puyo 2
  • Super Soccer
  • Super Tennis
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

And notably, this is the first time that Stunt Race FX, Super Soccer, and Super Tennis will be playable on a different platform since the SNES. The games will be compatible with the Switch’s rewind feature, and offer local and online multiplayer in titles including Super Puyo Puyo 2 and Kirby's Dream Land 3. Like the NES re-releases, Nintendo will also put a SNES controller on sale soon, and it plans to release even more SNES games in future. Watch the announcement below.
