Nintendo Switch Online Getting Six More Retro Games

On December 12, 2019, six more retro titles will be added to the Nintendo Switch Online lineup.

Through Nintendo Switch Online membership, players can access a growing number of classic Super NES and NES games, allowing older gamers to relive their nostalgic memories, and giving newer gamers the opportunity to make some.

The inclusion of these six new titles expands the SNES library available to Nintendo Switch Online members to a total of 24 titles, and brings the NES library to a total of 50 games—giving fans a grand sum of 74 classic games to pick and choose from. As a means to celebrate the inclusion of 50 NES games, Nintendo is giving players a 50 percent discount on a set of Nintendo Entertainment System controllers that are compatible with the Switch. From now until January 10, 2020, subscribers to the Switch Online service can pick up one of these controllers for a price of USD $29.99

The new games coming to Nintendo Switch Online are as follows:

Super NES
