Switch Online is getting Zelda 2 next week

Nintendo has announced the next batch of classic NES games to hit the Switch's online service.

January 16 will see Zelda 2: Adventures of Link come to Switch Online, which was originally released in the US and UK back in 1988. It's quite different from the first Zelda, as it takes place from a traditional platforming perspective, rather than the top down viewpoint adopted by its predecessor.

As such, it received a bit of a battering from fans over the years, although don't let that put you off; Zelda 2 is a fantastic game in its own right, so don't listen to the haters, eh?

Also on the cards is platforming shoot-'em-up Blaster Master, which hit the NES back in 1988 in Japan and the US but didn't arrive in the UK until 1991. 

The previous update for Switch Online included Wario's Woods and Ninja Gaiden.
