Nintendo Switch Online - NES and SNES games

Nintendo has announced that four more games are joining the Nintendo Switch Online NES and SNES libraries.

Nintendo Switch Online members have a lot to look forward to this month. Firstly, Overcooked! 2 is free to play for an entire week from today. Secondly, another batch of classic NES and SNES titles arrive on February 17.

Receiving a Western release for the first time is the SNES action game, Psycho Dream. It’s not one we’re familiar with, but Nintendo describes it as a “reality-bending action platformer that sends you into a virtual fantasy game to rescue a missing person.”

Also joining the SNES library is Laser Soft’s Doomsday Warrior and caveman adventure, Prehistorik Man. The solitary NES addition is the flame-fighting puzzle game, Fire ‘n Ice.

Here is Nintendo’s PR summary for each title.

Psycho Dream

When Sayaka doesn’t return to reality after entering an immersive virtual world known as a D-Movie, the protagonists, Ryo and Maria, must progress through a terrifying fantasy game called Legend of the Fallen Capital to rescue her and bring her back to reality.

Doomsday Warrior

It’s the Doomsday Warrior versus the Doom Squad! This action game features an evil sorcerer who has recruited seven warriors to take over Earth. But one of the Doom Squad has resisted the influence and now stands against the rest as the Doomsday Warrior!

Prehistorik Man

Sam the caveman’s quest to save his village begins! Sam lives in a village whose food is stolen by dinosaurs. To get more, Sam must collect bones, which he can then use to buy food. On his way, he’ll need to make use of a variety of weapons, vehicles and attacks, including shouting, to attack all on-screen foes. Can Sam reach the dinosaur graveyard and collect enough bones?

Fire ‘n Ice

As Dana, you have been chosen by the Queen of the Winter Fairies to bear the power of ice magic. With it, you must defend your home, Coolmint Island, from the wicked wizard Druidle and his flames!

Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch Online subscribers in Japan will receive Psycho Dream, Shin Megami Tensei II, Solomon’s Key 2, and Mario’s Picross, the last of which is already available in the West.
