The update adds Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest, Mario’s Super Picross, and The Peace Keepers

Imagine having access to one of the greatest libraries of games to give to consumers and the best you can do is Mario Picross.

NES/SNES online are huge disappointments.

there are a lot of licencing issues when it comes to that. those people that made the games need to give permission to do these things. over the years, some ip's have been purchased and sold over and over with random financial incentives... some ips may be lost forever. if you want the full library, the switch homebrew community has you covered on many different levels.

I've never understood defending a lackluster product by saying "well, if you hack it to play roms and do things the company selling it considers illegal... "

NES/SNES Online are terrible products and not worth the money. End of story.

Lol @fitofficial it's 20 bucks for a year and you get a decent little library of games. It's not TERRIBLE

Everything Nintendo does online is a disappointment in some way.

Pretty lousy lineup, considering how long we've waited since the last NES update.

Do we really need Golf when we already had NES Open Tournament Golf, which is almost identical in graphics and gameplay?

Very interesting tidbit I read in the Youtube comments. I've yet to fact check it, but if true, I guess Golf's inclusion is pretty awesome in honor of Iwata's life.

Here's the tidbit:

"Golf was originally hidden in the Switch's system and you could access it by holding the joy-cons and performing the gesture Satoru Iwata used to make in directs. NES Golf was one of his favorite games, and Nintendo added it in as an easter-egg to honor his life.

Nintendo unfortunately patched this secret out. This was because in Japan, it was tradition to place a recently deceased’s person’s favorite things in a special box that is not allowed to open. The hidden game was essentially a digital version of this ritual, and it’s clear that Nintendo wanted Iwata’s life to be honored in a special way by giving the switch a secret game that only they knew about."

Pretty lame actually. I checked it outand the only difference I see are 3 boxes to scroll through.

There's probably something more going on in the backend prepping for something in the future if they gave it a 3.0.0

This makes me really happy because I own all of the Mega Man collections on Switch, but it always bothered me that they excluded these OG Gameboy titles.

Hopefully they'll add Mega Man Xtreme 1&2 for GBC later on, bc those were also missing from the collections.

5 MegaMan titles at once, now that's some good update, it's time for me to bring out the hopium for a new MegaMan

Sgt_Slaughter38d ago

Maybe this means Mega Man 64 is around the corner, too. Would be a fun addition on top of these.
