Nintendo has announced that four more classic games are coming to the Switch Online service on September 23, 2020. I’m most excited for Mario’s Super Picross, a game that never released for the Super NES in the U.S. – until now! As a big fan of Picross games this one will definitely be played from beginning to end. It looks a lot like the Game Boy version, but with much better graphics.
Of course, it’s also very exciting to see Donkey Kong Country 2 make the cut. This is an amazing game with a stellar soundtrack and although it’s a bit on the difficult side it should be fun to play co-op online with a friend. I’ve heard good things about S.C.A.T. as well, so NES players should get a kick out of that one, especially Contra fans. I had never really heard of The Peace Keepers before, but it might be a fun brawler.
Remember that a Switch Online membership is required to play these, and over 80 more classic games. It’s $20 a year and the value proposition just keeps getting better as the library grows.
