If anything can get me to stop playing Fire Embem: Three Houses, it’s the murderer’s row of SNES games available now through Nintendo Switch Online.
Nintendo announced yesterday that it will now offer SNES games as part of its online subscription service. The publisher began offering Nintendo Switch Online for $20 a year last September, but has sweetened the deal throughout 2019 with a growing library of NES games and the free-to-play puzzler Tetris 99.
Now, some all-time classics, like Super Mario World and Super Metroid, are available on the service. More will be added each month.
Additionally, Nintendo will begin selling Switch-compatible replica SNES controllers at an unspecified later date.
But, you came here to see the list. Here’s the list:
- Brawl Brothers
- Breath of Fire
- Demon’s Crest
- Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics
- Kirby’s Dream Course
- Kirby’s Dream Land 3
- Star Fox
- Stunt Race FX
- Super E.D.F. Earth Defense Force
- Super Ghouls’n Ghosts
- Super Mario Kart
- Super Mario World
- Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
- Super Metroid
- Super Puyo Puyo 2
- Super Soccer
- Super Tennis
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Notably, this is the first time Stunt Race FX has been available on any console since its release on SNES. If Nintendo keeps to its current course, I may, eventually, not miss Virtual Console anymore.
