Nintendo Switch Online - Wrecking Crew

Nintendo confirms the two NES games coming to Nintendo Switch Online in July 2019.

Wrecking Crew and Donkey Kong 3 are the next Nintendo Entertainment System games to come to the Switch’s online subscription service. They will both arrive on July 17, 2019. Wrecking Crew is notable for featuring Mario and Luigi as hammer-wielding demolition workers, a game from a time before they were cemented as Nintendo’s iconic plumbing mascots.

Nintendo has also announced that NES games on Switch are getting a handy rewind feature, similar to the one used on the SNES Classic Mini. This, in addition to save states, should make these famously punishing games that little bit easier to complete. Rewind can be used at any time by holding down the ZL and ZR triggers. The update also arrives on July 17.

Nintendo Switch Online subs run for one, three or 12 months. Family membership plans are also available that allow up to seven family members access on the same account.

Nintendo Switch Online Pricing

  • 1 month – $3.99/£3.49/€7.99
  • 3 months – $7.99/£6.99/€7.99
  • 12 months – $19.99/£17.99/€19.99
  • Annual Family Membership – $34.99/£31.49/€34.99

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
