Nintendo Switch Online

There’s been an ongoing saga with the possibility of SNES games on Switch over the past couple of months. Within the Nintendo Switch Online NES app, it was discovered that references to over 20 SNES titles had been added back in January. This seemed to ramp up further last month.

The app was updated once again today, but has apparently gone in the opposite direction. Dataminers have found that all SNES game strings have now been removed.

What this means currently is unclear. Could SNES games be moved over into their own app? Or could we be losing hope for seeing these titles on Switch in the future?

Below are overviews for Blaster Master and Metroid’s new SP versions:

Nintendo has revealed this month’s NES offerings for Switch Online. Two more games are joining the lineup in the west on February, including Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby’s Adventure.

In Japan, Nintendo will be throwing another game in the mix: Tsuppari Oozumou. This is the second month in a row that Japan has had an extra game. However, anyone who creates a Japanese account on their Switch system regardless of their region can play Tsuppari Oozumou.

The supported platforms for the Nintendo Switch Online service could be expanding in the future. Just a few days ago, fans datamined what appeared to be references to various SNES games. Some additional information has since surfaced.

The Nintendo Switch Online app was updated again yesterday, making a few new games available to subscribers. However, that apparently wasn’t all. New languages were added for SNES descriptions such as Spanish for Super Mario Kart.

Here’s a look at the rundown of existing language descriptions currently, which is speculated to be the SNES launch lineup:

A short while ago, Nintendo revealed its January lineup for the Nintendo Switch Online subscription. All regions will be receiving Zelda II – The Adventure of Link and Blaster Master. However, Japan will actually be getting a third game: Joy Mech Fight.
