Nintendo has announced that three more SNES titles will join the Nintendo Switch Online library next week.
First up is Claymates, the well-liked platformer from Interplay, the studio behind the Clayfighter series. It’s a traditional enough adventure livened up by its claymation visuals and the ability to transform into various animals. Who wouldn’t want to play as Muckster the Cat, Doh-Doh the Duck, Oozy the Mouse, Goopy the Guppy, or Globmeister the Gopher?
Jelly Boy was previously only released in Europe and isn’t a game we are familiar with. Again, transformation is the name of the game, this time as a jelly baby with morphing powers.
The final addition is the 1991 isometric action puzzler Bombuzal, also known as Ka-Blooey in North America. The game has a storied history and also made an appearance on Amiga, Atari ST, and Commodore 64. It looks mildly diverting, we suppose.
It’s not the most exciting Nintendo Switch Online lineup – still no Earthbound, sadly – but on the flipside, there’s nothing wrong with having the chance to play some deeper cuts from the SNES back-catalogue.
All three games join the service on July 28, 2021.
July’s Nintendo Switch Online titles for Japan also includes Bombuzal, as well as Dead Bounce (Tuff E Nuff), and Shin Megami Tensei if.
