After months of waiting, Nintendo has finally announced the next batch of SNES and NES titles will be added to the Switch Online service next week. There are a total of six titles coming to the libraries in America and Europe, but as usual, the line-up is slightly different in Japan. This time around, it's receiving four games:
While Japan – for once – appears to be getting fewer games than the west, there's one particular title in its line-up that we would absolutely love to see made available locally: Famicom Wars. If the name doesn't ring a bell, it's the original 1988 NES entry that started out the 'Wars' series. The first game in this series to reach the west was Advance Wars for the Game Boy Advance in 2001.
Famicom Wars has been released multiple times on Nintendo's digital storefronts in Japan but has skipped the west every single time. If you do want to play it on your Switch, you can always create a Japanese account and then download this particular version of the NES app.
