Nintendo Switch It Up, Adding 22 SNES Games

Nintendo may be planning on switching things up by bringing classic SNES games to its Nintendo Switch Online subscription service, including Super Mario Kart and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Dataminer @KapuccinoHeck has claimed to find evidence of 22 SNES games that are planned to be added to Switch Online in the NES Online code strings.

Many of games are lauded as the best the original console, released in 1991 in the US, had to offer, however, the line up is different to the SNES Classic mini console Nintendo released in 2017.

If nostalgic gamers purchased the NES and SNES Classic Mini solely to access the classic games, they might feel hard done by with this latest news.

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime was quoted in an interview in December saying that once the NES Classic and SNES Mini consoles sell out Nintendo will not be making any more.

“Once they sell out, they’re gone. And that’s it. The way that consumers will be able to continue participating with our classic content is going to be through Nintendo Switch Online…We look at that as the main way that consumers will be able to experience that legacy content.”

Nintendo’s subscription service adds classic NES games each month, the move to add the SNES library makes sense to retain subscriber numbers as more and more game streaming services are popping up.

Subscription fees start at $5.95 a month for an individual and $59.95 a year for a family group membership (up to eight accounts).
