I think this is a decent starting line-up and I'm looking forward to playing them. Considering there'll be 53 games by next August if they keep releasing 3 every month, £18 a year is a bargain really. I wonder how in-depth the added online features will be. I think Balloon Fight would be really fun in competitive multiplayer but as far as I know it was only co-op in the original release. If they add an online competitive mode that would be amazing, but it might be a bit too much to ask.

I'm hoping the online features will include high-score challenges and so on, but I suspect it might be limited to the standard 2-player mode being made available for friends only.

Glad to hear that. Definitely „i can play it when i feel like it” mentality is better than not knowing when the particular game may just disappear.

Oh, I'm sure high score sharing is going to be included. I wonder how speed running purists will feel about these games being available on the Switch? Will they consider them equal to the original physical releases, or dismiss them as cheating?

@FaeKnight they'll probably see it as emulation and thus not acknowledge the scores.

Ya know what let's just use this thread to talk about the app and the games.

From now on this is the main NES - NSO thread.

Yesssir! Don’t forget than you can use the Y button to move titles around in your “catalogue” screen. The size of the box art changes based on the amount of titles in a row.
1) Move the cursor over a title
2) Press Y
3) Move the cursor to any square dot that now appears
4) Press Y again to confirm

I just played a quick game of Balloon Fight for the first time in ages and my score was 351200. Can you do better? I know I can!

Edit: Do you think we ought to have a separate thread for NES game high scores? I'm itching to test my skills!

I just got 999999939992492! Yep, I'm that good.
Haha, nope, I suck at Balloon Fight. Started with the Mario games. And maybe, just maybe, I'll play thru the first Zelda for the first time now lol

Given the tech in the joycons and that Nintendo is willing to tinker when needed, it'd be nice if we got Duck Hunt someday. It'd probably be smoother aiming then on the Wii U version.

Bonus points if they make a Zapper attachment.

While I've only had a quick test of the NES games, its looks good so far. Games load insanely fast, they look great in handheld with the same display options as NES Classic and while the guy I joined online didnt seem to know how to get a 2 player Double Dragon match going, the connection to his feed seemed flawless.

Pity its just Friends Only online but thankfully my Friends List should have more than enough people online. So far so good.

Just beat Mario 1. Emulation seems spot-on, no complaints from me so far!

If you guys are willing to curate and mantain a highscore/competition thread then go ahead.

As for my time playing the NES games, I started with a quick Yoshi match, and then took time to set up a proper starter file in Zelda (blue ring, white sword, big shield, blue candle).

I don't usually like using save states, but saving normally would be too cumbersome on this system (since you need to exit the game to set up the second controller as player two). So to get the money to buy the blue ring I used some save states outside the money making game.

Already?! What are you, a Speedrunner?

I have to admit, I've been erratic in my jumping from game to game here. Played a bit of SMB and lost all my lives by world 1-3 (wow I'm out of practice), tried out Yoshi, played a few boards of Dr Mario, did a round in Wrestling where I had no idea what I'm doing but won anyway, played a bit of River City Ransom... Just kind of hopping from game to game rapid fire. Something I never would have done on the actual console since by the getting the game cart to work could be fiddly, so when you did get it to work you played that game for hours.

My best so far was 7, not that I thought to grab a screencap. Instead I jumped from that into Zelda and attempted to complete the 1st dungeon. After finding it, that is.
