Well I guess it’s official that we’re only getting two NES games a month now instead of three. That’s a bit of a bummer! Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby’s Adventure arrive on the Switch Online service next week on February 13, 2019.
The next additions to the Nintendo Entertainment System™ – Nintendo Switch Online game collection star some of Nintendo’s most beloved characters, including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad and Kirby! On Feb. 13, the Kirby’s Adventure™ and Super Mario Bros.™ 2 games will be available to play anytime, anywhere as part of the Nintendo Switch Online service.
- Kirby’s Adventure – Using 20 unique tricks and Kirby’s ability to steal enemies’ powers by swallowing them, you’ll have to make your way through a horrific land filled with all kinds of nightmares. Recover the broken pieces of the Star Rod, and everyone in Dream Land will sleep peacefully once again. If you fail, the citizens of Dream Land will be subjected to a lifetime of terrible nightmares.
- Super Mario Bros. 2 – Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad embark on a quest together to save the day against the villainous Wart. Pick up items and throw them at your adversaries to clear levels in seven fantastical worlds. Even enemies can be picked up and tossed across the screen. This unique installment in the Super Mario Bros. series will keep you coming back for more.
These titles join the growing library of NES™ games with newly added online play on the Nintendo Switch™ system, which also includes more than 30 classics like Super Mario Bros.™ 3, Metroid™ and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link™ that are available exclusively to Nintendo Switch Online members.
