The NES – Nintendo Switch Online app has been updated. Version 2.0.0 is live, adding in the latest games and SP versions.

Adventures of Lolo, Ninja Gaiden, and Wario’s Woods have been added. On top of that, Dr. Mario SP and Metroid SP are now available.

Here’s an introduction to the latter two:

Dr. Mario SP

Uncover the ultimate truth after beating the game!

In this special version of Dr. Mario, you’re dropped in just before a rare scene that occurs only after clearing the game on level 20 at Hi speed. This game has been played and loved by many people since its release, but who knows how few have seen this! Fun fact: in the 2005 Nintendo DS game Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day, this game was called Germ Buster. This wasn’t necessarily for training your brain, but it seems to have a relaxing effect on it either way!

Metroid SP

Defeat your archenemy, Ridley!

In this version of Metroid, you start at the battle against Ridley! Our hero, Samus, has all her equipment, including the Ice Beam upgrade for her weapon – and she’s ready to face down her nemesis! Ridley is now known for being a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game for Nintendo Switch console, but in this game, Ridley was described as the original life-form of the planet Zebes, controlled by Mother Brain.
