Five new NES and Super NES video games are coming to the Nintendo Switch Online library this week.

Surprise! Nintendo has announced the next batch of retro games available to Switch Online subscribers. Top of the list is the Rare’s 1996 SNES classic, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble! For our money, it’s the best of Rare’s Donkey Kong efforts with both the gameplay and visuals a cut above the previous two instalments.

Two games from Jaleco also join the SNES library. Firefighting action game The Ignition Factor is surprisingly fun and strategic. And although we haven’t played 1993 fighter Tuff E Nuff, the name alone makes it worthy of attention. The SNES lineup is completed by Laser Soft’s 1992 platformer, Super Valis IV.

There’s just one NES title this time around, Beam Software’s forgettable action-adventure game, Nightshade.

All five games arrive on December 18, 2020.
