By the end of this year, there'll be 29 playable NES games on the Nintendo Switch Online service. Next week, on 12th December, the final three games for 2018 will be added to this digital library. Below is a brief description of each one from the official PR:

  • Adventures of Lolo – After the love of his life, Lala, is kidnapped by the devilish King Egger and taken to his haunted castle, our hero, Lolo, sets out to rescue her. The journey is perilous, as the Great Devil’s fortress is guarded by a massive army. But Lolo has a few tricks up his sleeve. Combining clever environmental puzzles with tricky enemies and an engaging style, Adventures of Lolo is a true classic.
  • Ninja Gaiden – Take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa, a rising ninja in his family’s clan who travels to America to seek vengeance for his father’s death. Fight your way through six challenging side-scrolling chapters/14 stages (not including boss battles) while defeating gangs of street thugs, battling evil ninjas and fighting barbarian bosses by using the deadly Dragon Sword, ninja skills and ninja magic.
  • Wario’s Woods – Control Toad as he scrambles along the bottom of the screen picking up monsters and bombs and arranging them vertically, horizontally and diagonally to clear the screen of enemies. This game features several modes of play, such as basic, lesson and time race. If you like puzzle games like Dr. Mario, you will definitely love this one!

In addition to this announcement, Nintendo confirmed more games will be added to the NES service next year, starting in January. At this point in time, no information about these upcoming releases has been revealed.

In the same PR, Nintendo also said the first shipments of NES wireless controllers for Switch would go out next week. These controllers are available in a pack of two for $59.99 and can be charged by attaching them to a docked Switch. The controllers are an exclusive offer for paid Switch Online members only and can be purchased from the official website.
