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.
Bring it on! They updated it with new languages such as Spanish....it's totally happening. :)
Stunt Race FX! I haven't played that since I was a kid. Anyone else remember it, using the Star Fox tech? Loved it. Hope it still holds up well.
It doesn't. I own the cartridge
@MetroidFreak21 Aw, that's a shame. I wondered.. I can vaguely, even now, remember a pretty low framerate. Still, I'd like to have a trip down memory lane. I actually still own the cartridge also, but in storage at my parent's house somewhere. I don't live anywhere close to try it out.
I played it a lot as a kid. You must be Andre from Gamexplain.
If they start releasing SNES , GBA, N64 games with online multiplayer then it's going to justify the $20 yearly fee and then some!
I definitely agree. I'm getting excited.
If they add games beyond SNES then they'll start charging more than $20 a year.
Without a doubt. I also doubt we’ll see any GBA or N64 games free on switch. They’re most likely planning a mini version of the N64 and they’ll profit from that a few years before offering anything for free theough the obline service on switch. This is Nintendo, they’ve never been a company that does much charity.
GameCube they have controller adapators so wouldn’t be a stretch plus as much as I want GBA as 3ds never did apart from the 10 ambassador games but gameboy gameboy colour as well please
I’m sure they’ll start with a few SNES mini games first. Maybe they can release 4-5 every month instead of 2-3. Good news anyway
I'm ashamed to admit that i never played Super Metroid and Link to the Past. So i'm looking forward to this.
You're in for a treat. They both still stand up really well today.
No need to be ashamed. Consider yourself lucky. Both games are superb! Super Metroid can get pretty challenging if new to Metroid, you may need a guide...but get to the end because you will feel so accomplished. An all-time classic!
two fantastic games. LTTP is arguably one of my favorite games ever.
My first Metroid was Other M.
Played and beat em years ago and still go back and play them from time to time even now. A few of the best classics ever.
Nintendo add online to these retro games so it may be fun to play with strangers or friends
Gamecube games will not happen.
Um, could you be more positive? GameCube games will happen if we demand them. So demand that they happen.
no, they might just get HD remasters for the Switch itself, which I would be fine with.
The issue is that in the past, when Nintendo started releasing games from a new console, they would taper off releases of the prior one. It was more easily seen on the Wii U, where they would trickle-release SNES games. Then they would announce a new console for the VC and they would trickle release that console's games and seemingly turn off the trickle of the prior console they focused on. It's really hard to explain. Basically, I hope if they start bringing out SNES games this doesn't mean they're already phasing out NES games.
no I hope this means that instead of getting 3 games a month we get 6 (3 NES and 3 SNES) and then hopefully the trend continues.
I mean it was bound to happen 🤷
Will get myself a subscription once snes games drop.
Hopefully Konami will play nice and release Sunset Riders with online co-op then I would pay for Nintendo online. I also wouldn't mind if Konami wrangled the license of Turtles in Time for SNES I would love to play that online co-op as well.
It's 5 dollars a year and they adding more 😲😲😲 28562;😲
