Posted on May 26, 2021 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
The Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online app has been updated, bringing it to version 2.3.0. Four new games can now be played: Caveman Ninja, Magical Drop2, Super Baseball Simulator 1.000, and Spanky’s Quest.
Here’s the rundown of each title:
Caveman Ninja (also known as Joe & Mac) – Can cave-dudes Joe and Mac rescue the lost cave-dudettes? In this action game from 1991, life was pretty cool for Joe and Mac until a bunch of Neanderthal nerds crashed their village. The dudes will have to leap to the rescue and jump, dash and use roll attacks to get past the stone-age obstacles in their way. Just make sure to pick the best weapon for the situation, and the boys are sure to make it through!
Magical Drop2 – This puzzle game launched on the Super Famicom system in 1996, but it never saw an English release. But even if you’ve never played, the rules are simple to learn. Catch and throw the drops that descend from overhead. Create vertical lines of three drops of the same color to clear all the connected drops. Enjoy four playable modes, including a mode that assigns you a rank when the game ends, as well as a story mode with 10 characters to play!
Super Baseball Simulator 1.000 – Get ready for high intensity, superhuman baseball spectacles! Use Ultra Plays like Phantom Ball, which will make the ball vanish mid-pitch, or Meteor Hit, which will knock out fielders who make contact with the ball before it bounces. With multiplayer options, a grand total of 18 baseball teams and the ability to create your own original team, this is the wacky baseball simulation dreams are made of!
Spanky’s Quest – Spanky was on his way to a picnic when the witch Morticia began dropping bricks from the sky. Trapped, with six towers now built across the land, Spanky must clear each before the witch’s evil pet crow catches him. He’ll have to use his magic ball to stun enemies, bounce it off his head to power it up and pop it to attack – and try on some hats along the way.
While it isn’t out in the west (probably since it never received an official English translation), Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War is one of Switch’s classic games this month in Japan. It’s being distributed through the Super Famicom app.
We’ll also mention that today’s SNES update includes an SP version of Super Mario Kart. All cups and all courses are immediately playable.
