The Nintendo of America Twitter account recently uploaded a graphic that provides fans with a full-scale shot of all the NES and SNES games you can play when you subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online in this particular region.
It also acts as a reminder that there are now more than 80 playable classics available with "more to come". Take a look below:
One of the more exciting additions in recent times would have to be Rare's Donkey Kong Country. Although other regions, like Japan, have received role-playing classics such as the Atlus game, Shin Megami Tensei.
To see the full written list of all the classic NES and SNES games available via the NSO, visit the official website. Of course, to play all of these games, you'll need to become a member or have access to a free trial.
What other titles would you like to see added to the Switch Online service in the future? What platforms are you hoping will get added to the service in the future? Share your thoughts down below.
Earthbound would be great to see added.
I’ll believe it if they actually give us games we actually want and add in some GBA/GC/N64 classics as well. I disabled my NSO subscription and my wallet couldn’t be happier.
Here’s an idea, Nintendo- disable the NSO and give us a proper virtual console instead.
This paywall to rent games is ludicrous as it is asinine... listen to your consumers!
Notice the gap in the SNES games? The hole in my heart is 500X that size. Give us EarthBound or DKC2! I’ve been waiting far too long for these.
80 classics which is great but TBH I only play one of them DKC (4ever).
We are almost at the two year mark... let’s see what they add to keep people from letting those annual passes expire (pleeeeease be n64 or GBA)
I’d rather have VC and buy individual games and transfer my past vc purchases to my switch via my account that links my 3ds to my switch. I hate having to pay to rent games (and forced to check in weekly with no stable internet connection) especially games I don’t find particularly interesting when I could buy them and curate my own collection. More content more regularly is the key don’t hold anything back!
I just play the NES and SNES Mini consoles for my old school fix. Although I do like the idea of playing these games online. Me and my bro can play Wild Guns, something that the remake of that game lacks.
I really wish we would see Mega man, Disney games, Ninja Turtles, Castlevania, Enix, and Square Soft, but I doubt these will come for a number of reasons. Hopefully the rest of the Donkey Kong Country games come soon at least .
There are a few I am surprised we haven't seen yet like anything from the Mother series, and Startropics II.
Not sure many will agree with my view but I believe the NES and SNES online games are worth more than the equivalent on Gold or Plus.
For starters I don't actually pay for subs for the free games each month I pay because it is the only way I can play my games online, any games included are a bonus.
However on Gold and Plus they are just giving me games that if I already wanted I would have already bought. I don't think I have played through any games I have recieved through those subs because I would have already played them or they just don't interest me. On Switch online they offer games that I would otherwise not be able to play on the system and in my opinion a lot of those games are stone cold classics that I would always want in my library, especially the SNES games. So that is actual real incentive to keep subbing even if online became free because trust me if online play on Playstation went free again I would drop Plus in a heartbeat, can't say the same for Switch Online now.
Obviously this is tied to the worth I attach to those classic games but for 18 quid a year? Yeah, well worth it.
Hoping for N64 games announced in September for the online service.
@Dayton311 Agreed, I'm hoping for N64 at the anniversary next month. That would keep me on for another year.
I've played a ton of the games on the NS Online. I think it's great for the $20 a year I spend. I don't get people who whine about the VC going away. You are getting literally over $350 worth of VC titles for $20 a year. If you really want to "own" games that were made 20, 30 years ago, go to a retro game store.
@gokev13 Mega Man and Castelvania are on the Switch via collections. So are many of the Square Soft games. Licensing issues are the problem with Disney/Ninja Turtle games (though rumor is DuckTales is coming to the Switch).
Ah yes... the numerous requests for N64 games. Little did you know, it can factor into de-confirming potential HD remakes/remasters of your fan-favourite games like Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask.
Would love to see Earthbound, earthbound beginnings, and Chrono trigger. The only worthwhile RPGs are breath of fire and star tropics, there is so much potential. I haven't tried immortal yet so I'll give that a go later.
I really want Harvest Moon on the SNES, because it's my all time favorite game, but I doubt it would ever happen at this point. So really I'm just looking for N64 (and would love GameCube) games at this point. We'll see, I guess!
I doubt N64 games are coming but it would be really cool to see. GB games would be neat too, and I can see that being a realistic possibility. Hopefully with the enhanced SGB graphics for games like DK '94 and Kirby 2. Fingers crossed!
As for SNES games we still need DKC2, DKC3, Earthbound, and...can you please release Kirby's Star Stacker SNES overseas Nintendo? You don't even have to translate it.
@kingbk I agree with you 100%
But you'd better pop an X Defense quickly.
Not really, just means those remasters will have to put extra effort in to justify their existence.
Switch has versions of NES and SNES games in the eshop so there is room for more than one version of the games.
Haters gonna hate.
Having lots of great classic games on a game console will always be welcome.
Here for another 2 years.
so, how is this newsworthy again? They basically tweeted out an advertisement, and NL is hanging on to the "More to Come" tag? Well, of course there are going to be more games coming! It would be note-worthy if they had said "that's all, folks."
@TheFullAndy I understand your point, but it is very based on your personal library. I have 500+ SNES games and almost 120 Master System games (I really like sega more on 8bit). Switch online games are no appealing for me (yes it is cool to have those games portable, but the emulation is far from accurate). On other hand I have almost no 3D game, and Xbox game pass works on pc, so for me it is an amazing deal. I am playing flight Simulador a lot this week, and after that I can play zoo tycoon, streets of rage 4 and so on.
TLDR: I agree with you but your value is not everyone value
@BanjoPickles I think some people are thinking it alludes to potentially announcing new games for the NS Online service at the next Direct (which is "allegedly" happening this Friday).
@abdias Flight Simulator’s been amazing so far. Really cool that I can actually spot my house and the graphics are crazy good. Game Pass PC is the best deal I’ve had on these subscriptions hands down.
@TheFullAndy Nicely put!
That's fair enough, as I said it does come down to the personal worth you would attach to the games and that is different for everyone.
Stunt Race FX and Star Fox are near worth it alone as I waited years for them to show up on the Wii and Wii U VC! Also finally having Link to the Past and Super Metroid running at 60hz is amazing!
All portable too! Love it.
You haven’t been retro game shopping have you? The prices are ridiculous. $90 for a loose Megaman 5 and $30 for Phelios. Heck even a partially complete CDi game I bought recently was $15!
If you look over the games you actually play on nso classics you’ll find you’d be ahead if you just paid the VC price and had unlimited access to them rather than pay $20 year after year and maybe hopefully possibly get to play the games you want as you trudge through a slow drip of uninteresting games.
There is no reason we can't more updates more frequently.
A couple of good games every two months just doesn't cut it. Also how about some monthly deals to go with the online pass. 30% off one game or a $5-$10 voucher a month. Add some stuff to the pass instead of games we literally brought for the last 2 systems
Great. Limited selection of 30 year old games and a lot of the best ones missing. I love Nintendo, but their online service is pathetic when compared to Xbox Live and Playstation Plus. The price is lower but it feels like I get nothing from it.
DKC2-3, Super Mario RPG and EarthBound, please.
The arcade archives games such as Super Mario Vs are not the same as the nes counterparts. I can complete Mario in about 20 minutes, not so for Vs I can’t get far at all as it was intentionally designed to be unfair and munch quarters.
Oh, thank goodness. For a moment, I almost forgot that NSO had S/NES games on there with how infrequent they add to it.....
Seriously, what is the hold-up on adding more games? It used to be where we'd get at least 4 games a month, but now it's almost like it's 4 games every 3 months. Nintendo still has a number of games they can add, and there's a plethora of 3rd-party games (which Nintendo would need to make an agreement with to get those games, much like with the Classic systems). Understandable why it won't get some games like from the Mega Man series or Secret of Mana because those are available on the Switch separately, but where's Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Act Raiser, even the freaking Super Star Wars Collection? As it is, there are a number of games on the S/NES Classic systems that aren't on NSO. I'd imagine if those collections were made available on Switch, not just part of NSO, to purchase for the same price as the physical Classic units, a lot of people would buy them, including myself.
Looks like good library. I'm hoping for GBA games too. We are rolling! And by my Binding Blade they are fun.
Yes but HD remasters also wouldn't necessarily be exactly the same as the games on the online service.
My point was there is room for both.
I can see Nintendo adding Gameboy games soon and we will see Link's Awakening despite the remake on the system.
A reminder that at this time in its lifespan, the Wii U not only had a larger selection of NES and SNES games but N64 and GBA games as well. Nintendo has no excuse for their pitiful treatment of legacy content on their most successful console in decades.
They should have released SNES games on a monthly basis, at least the first few months, as they did with the NES app. The games come irregularly and SNES app feels abandoned since day one.
There are some token games I'd like to see like Gradius III or Dracula X.
And then there are licensed games that would be an absolute coup like NES Batman and Turtles in Time on SNES.
We really need online enabled Zombies Ate My Neighbors for Halloween.
I just want DKC2 and 3, please.
If they add GBA with Kuru Kuru Kururin, then that alone would be worth the subscription price for me.
And some of them are even fun!
Btw I don't want Earthbound there and rather get a collection with all three games in one.
Just imagine that red homescreen icon with the golden font: MOTHER TRILOGY
Games I want on nso:
Super Mario rpg
Final fantasy iii (vi)
Mega man X
Mega man 1 and or 2
Duck hunt and hogan's alley (light gun games would be great with joycon)
N64 and gb/gbc/gba collections would be great too
Needs more games. Needs more classic consoles covered. I feel like this is still well behind the original Wii VC.
Street fighter II PLEASE!!!!! Turbo, super, whatever. Just gimme a fighting game I can play online!!!
I’d love TMNT Tournament Fighters, but that’ll never happen... too obscure...
@gokev13 You can buy quite a lot of the Mega Man, Castlevania, and Squenix games anyway.
September marks two years of NSO. I’m ready for a third console to be added to the mix.
Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure they will. Add more games, lol that's a good one, lemme guess, all obscure games we don't care about?
Honestly my online subscription is mainly only in use for animal crossing as I can mail friends stuff now and then. Splatoon I can always go for but it’s been awhile. I’d much rather purchase these classic games to own or at least get games more frequently and for more platforms than we have. I’d rather play my snes or nes classic than this lot.
Add GameCube & N64. Until then, for me personally, I couldn’t care less and don’t play these current games more than once a year if that.
The only reason I have Switch Online is for the cloud save and maybe 4-5 games for Online (thus far).
I think Unirally is the only game left that I'd be particularly interested in seeing.
@DoktorTotenKopf Imagine wanting the Virtual Console model in 2020 when the current model is great and much more cheaper.
80 games sounds impressive until you start to compare it with Wii, Wii U, New 3DS.
80 games in two years is about 3 games a month so I guess it could be worse but maan does it feel like a slow drip.
Nintendo: you have enough
A few more wouldn't hurt.
I remind you all that, technically, a "few" is between 3 and 300, so, go nuts, Nintendo. Preferably closer to 300.
Looking forward to seeing switch games added to this service
I don't recall any Nintendo/Nintendo-published games having NES/SNES and Switch equivalents. The closest would be Super Mario Maker 2, but that doesn't even count.
I highly doubt Nintendo would want to release two versions of a game, especially since the original version has been played numerous times by older fans and it would also be neglected by newer fans in favour of more modern titles including the new version of said game.
The Hamster games have Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, Gradius. SNES has Wild Guns but there is the remaster on Switch too.
There will definitely be room for both.
I believe the rumours about the Mario remasters and I expect Mario 64 original on the N64 online service along with a HD remaster of the game.
I wouldn't worry about it.
Unpopular opinion on here, but I think NSO is worth it. Hopefully DKC 2&3, Earthbound and some GameBoy(original, color and advance) are among future releases.
Yup and when the next gen console arrives we start alllllll over again......very exciting
Bring us Zoda's Revenge StarTropics II, Baseball Simulator 1,000, Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3, Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, Illusion of Gaia, as well as 64, Gameboy, or GBA games please.
It's important to note that those who complain about NSO aren't just doing so because of its classic game streaming component. Nintendo promotes the addition of NES, SNES (And possibly N64/GB down the lane) titles almost exclusively, alongside full-game demos. While these incentives are good, Nintendo still barely touches upon everything else the service should honor. They consistently ignore features they've done for free in the past like messaging & game invites. Other avenues like cloud saves & stable connectivity, are barely appropriately handled. Then, there's the fact that the company still ties voice chat to a smartphone app, rather than making it a console-based option, like they're competitors.
Game Boy? GBC? GBA? N64?
Even for SNES games, where are classic RPGs like Super Mario RPG or any Final Fantasy title? Chrono Trigger?
Can they give us more than one or two every 4 months?
I've lost patience with defending this service. I thought we would be seeing several new games every month and eventually would get games from all the consoles I mentioned. But at this point, I am questioning if the Switch 3 will have N64 games...
I would be okay with paying more, if I got more.
@TheFullAndy I agree. Actually I am finding the game pass extremely useful as well as I do the NES and SNES online. Xbox does newer and some not so older games with game pass, nothing like what ps is doing with ps now which is a bunch of really old games and is not worth the price.
I think I've loaded nes app twice and SNES one three times. Maybe it's about time to add another console.
@Benhop07 megaman games are all available on the eshop, great collections!!!
Super Mario RPG, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Donkey Kong Country 2/3, and so many more titles have long deserved a spot in this alleged legacy preservation subscription service. I'm tempted to bring up N64 games, but, at this point, I'm hesitant to think we'll ever get to play games like F-Zero X, Star Fox 64, Super Smash Bros., Majora's Mask, etc., in a convenient and legal way again.
It's really too bad my Wii U died on me. Maybe I should just buy another one of those.
all i need is dkc 2 .... haven't played a single one yet. dkc 1 ...nice that this game was added but idk, never played it again after dkc 2 got released. graphics, music, humor, everything was just better gimme that game and i will use the snes app finally xD
Why do they act like no one remembers Virtual Console
Worrying how they’re in such a bad state they need to pretend that this service is in any way decent
@DoktorTotenKopf have fun not visiting other islands on ACNH! and battling on pokemon!
@eRaz0r you dont deserve to play them if you never have! DC is on the SNES mini. DC2 is also on the WIi U. "im so excited but i never played them" you had 25 years bro....dont be entitled you sound like that guy whining for the FFVII remake when he never played the original.
At this point I'm only subscribing to NSO to play the odd Splatfest every few months.
Just an additional point
In 2 years the Wii’s virtual console had about 209 games from 8 consoles in the same amount of time we've had 80 games from 2 consoles
A free online service in 2008 was better than a paid one in 2020
Let that sink in
@DoktorTotenKopf without knowing your personal situation I'm wondering, how deep the hole in your pocket is, that the 20€/$ NSO subscription per year burned...
Sure, everyone would appreciate more, but the value for the money is great. I bet, even if every single NES/SNES game would be available to purchase via a VC, there would still be people complaining, probably about the price...
Have the complete back catalogue of NES, SNES, GB/C and GBA games
Leave the slow rollout to N64, GC and Wii
Also have one app for all retro consoles for the love of heck
@Nemesis666 you couldn’t be more wrong, hun.
@mazzel I have plenty of cash to burn but I would rather purchase older titles and keep them forever instead having them disappear from my devices after terminating such a barebones online service.
@Hackleckackle don’t take everything so personal; you’ll be a happier person but with you, I doubt it.
@nintendopok I don’t play either of those games. I usually played Smash online and that’s it.
GBA lifetime! I love it !!
@jtmnm sadly even if you did purchase another WiiU, I don’t think the online service is available to purchase some of those titles you wanted. I might be wrong though. I share your sentiments though.
80 titles and about 10% of them is actually worth more than 1 minute of playing
Ha, what a lovely comment section. A huge selection of gaming history that I loved as a kid and wish I had as a kid, and can still enjoy today as most of these classics hold up. And all this for 20 bucks a year? Be happy with what you have, instead of what you want.
The system has been out for 3 years. The service for 2? Nintendo keeps trickling out these old games like people haven’t played them before.
They were on Wii, 3DS, and Wii U
Please add Blades of Steel
@Joriss I think the games listed are great, but what about my previous comment about features?
I know people that got switchs recently probably their first nintendo console since the wii ( most of them used it only for likes of mario kart and wii sports). They think the games are great. Granted cause probably havnt played them since snes days.
I have a wii u and 3ds full of them so its not as great a deal to me.
Though hoping they add GBA and N64 that's where it will go from alright to good for me. If gamecube ever dded I'd be thrilled.
I hope Nintendo are actually future proofing with this service and that it will be something that will carry on with future consoles and not just be a this generation deal like the virtual console with wii.
Time and money friend. Dropping a ROM in a emulator and selling it for cheap is more economically sound than spend resources on a remake or remaster.
@LilMuku The Wii Virtual Console wasn't free. Those 209 games would have cost something like $1000+ to buy them all. On the Switch there are 80 games included with NSO, plus tons of other retro games available to buy - they just aren't under the same "Virtual Console" banner.
They are one of the slowest companies out there when it comes to online services. We are waiting a proper online for 2 years with all the classics, online connection problems and lags are observed in Nintendo games, there isn't a decent way to spend the silver and gold coins in games and lack of apps. I don't know what's going on, but they understand better the Japanese audience than the westerners. They even don't help the fans to develope tools and games.
I generally play Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon 2 online. The NES and SNES games are ok but there's a lot of games that either aren't good or have aged badly. Some of the great ones are already on NES/SNES mini so I don't play them often. GBA would be a nice addition for me since my GBA SP battery doesn't hold it's charge for very long anymore.
I'd like street fighter 2 turbo or maybe batman returns, even Gunsmoke added to the nes collection? The thoughts of having N64 games added to the switch is super exciting too.
@Yanina Think I'm going to play Kuru Kuru Kururin on my GBA soon, love that game. I liked it that much I got Kururin Squash on the GameCube as a Japanese import, it's the only Japanese import game I own.
A new system next month would make ton of sense, not just for renewals coming up but something to play for the next couple of months since their schedule is a bit light due to you know what.
N64 would be logical, with the anniversary, being next in line, and many multiplayer games have fond memories of. Whether or not they can do online multiplayer the same way as NES/SNES games remains to be seen, plus how to recreate the controller for the Club Nintendo bonus, lol. I think it would be mostly down to if the Mario Remasters is true or not, since you can't have an N64 collection without its most iconic game and would Nintendo give it away for free at the same time as selling you a Remaster?
Though alternatively I think the entire Gameboy line would be a good choice. Easier to port over and just so many more games than the N64. They could milk that for years.
GameCube onwards might be asking too much as that would be GBs and GBs of an app.
More games to be announced in a couple days, then, ehhh?
Bring back the VC. Also Nintendo, please do a deal with Sega to continue the Ages Line with games we actually want (not every version of Puyo Puyo)
No one buys all the games though but having access to a larger variety of games to curate a collection to your own personal gaming tastes is far better. Right now Nintendo is calling the shots in what games are bogging down your memory card with the nso approach. It may not be much space but it’s still space that’s being taken up by games you care nothing about.
Dear lord, they've resorted to reporting on random tweets now.
I just want the other DKC games and Mother
@DoktorTotenKopf I wouldn't agree. At the price point it is at this is nice extra. What they really need to do is fix the bugs of actually playing games online.
Both games you've mentioned weren't published by Nintendo. Yes, the Hamster collection does indeed include Nintendo games, but those were added by choice of Hamster, not Nintendo. Nintendo only allowed them to use the games.
Big deal. At this point there should be hundreds of games. And there’s STILL NO PURCHASE OPTION!!! AND NO N64 AND GAMECUBE!!! Ughhhhh!!! 😡😡😤
Still not bothering to renew, when I start to play on Switch more I shall reconsider, but no software is compelling me to use my Switch currently, and barely anything save Splatoon 2 convinced me I needed online in the first place. I just play Splatoon on Wii U now if I feel the urge for splatting.
I appreciate that these games are here and that Nintendo is considering classic games... but when your service has 1/10 of the functionality of several free emulators... it's not a very convincing sell.
I'm happy with the service so far. It's been nice having all these games that I would've paid for plus others that I can try out if I want. Plus online play, plus cloud saves, etc. And it's less than $3 a month for the whole family. We pay 4x more than that for Netflix, and we probably use NSO more.
Not trying to be mean here, but if you're missing VC so badly, go grab (or reconnect) a Wii U. The Wii U eShop is still open, and VC works great on that system. If you need portable, there's 3DS. Problem-solve, people.
Earthbound and Super Mario RPG are the two games that I most want to enter the catalog.
It would be wonderful if they decided to translate and bring at least one of the Fire Emblem games released for SNES.
If third-party games can be made available, I think there is still a lack of RPGs. Square Enix, taking Collection of Mana as a parameter, will probably prefer to launch on their own and charge for their games (if that happens, I hope they release Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV, V and VI and Dragon Quest V and VI).
The majority of the games are outdated and I find better quality games on Google Play. When I had a Wii, WiiU, the games I downloaded were mostly N64 games. I'm not paying 400 dollars if N64 games are exclusive to the"pro" model. A few of the SNES games are fun, most aren't. The ones that are the most playable are the ones that were made into GBA games like Link to the Past, Super Mario, and Yoshi's Island. Has Nintendo abandoned the Switch Online?' Or are they planning to make some into remakes and except us pay 60 dollars for Ocarina of Time.
Even if they add no more games ever. To have all those SNES classics for 18 pounds a year is a bargain. Yeah we all want more more more, but what’s on there is more than enough. Now where is Mario 64 remastered xxx
They can do a lot better then what they're offering and how they've been managing their online service.
Unless there's N64, GC and WII games and decent half way internet connectivity on the horizon you can count me out ... it ain't worth it anymore
Super Mario RPG now please.
Need N64 and handheld games!
@kaiofelipe @cutelilmonster @shonenjump86 It is strange that NSO doesn’t even have all the titles on the Mini consoles. Those really are nice little bundles.
Yes, those are all the reasons I doubt those games would ever come, doesn't mean I can't wish that they would.
I know I could buy those collections but at this point I would rather spend money on the online service and having more options than buying a bunch of collections and separate games. It just seems more convenient to me.
My guess is that GBA games are next. In handheld mode, the Switch is already a giant GBA. Time for the GBA Metroid games to appear on Switch!
Didn't the Wii and Wii U each have more?
ZOMBIES. ATE. MY. NEIGHBORS.
Give me all the games that Konami, Capcom, and others believe are worth $30+ to collect all the ones I don't care about with them. (Contra III, Castlevania X, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Final Fantasy IV, V, and IV, Chrono Trigger).
I am a little surprised that Square hasn't trolled us by putting Final Fantasy Mystic Quest on the service yet.
Games I'd like to see added...
-The Mysterious Murasame Castle
-Zoda's Revenger: StarTropics II
-Contra III: The Alien Wars
-Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
-Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble
-Final Fantasy II (actually Final Fantasy IV)
-Final Fantasy III (actually Final Fantasy VI)
-Illusion of Gaia
-Joe & Mac (have the second one, why not the first?)
-The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
-Super Mario All-Stars
-Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
-Zombies Ate My Neighbors
@Hackleckackle Yup, because Nintendo is a small indie company and can't possibly negotiate a deal with a big massive company like Square.
Besides, those are just a handful of examples. Here's some more: Where's Fire Emblem? Now would be a great time to give us those classic titles in the West that we missed out on. I could translate the games myself! There've been fan translations for decades now.
And then what about all the old retro systems? There are millions of people with as much or more nostalgia for GB/GBC/GBA/N64 than for NES and SNES but Nintendo had given us very little of those titles in the last several year. And sure, I can play the via Wii U or the originals, most of which I own, I get that. But there is a sizable group of people, like myself, who want access to that material on Switch, rather than some Chinese piracy box. Not everyone has a game room with space to have every game console we've owned since childhood plugged in.
Technically, there are 78 games available......NOT 80.
Unless you’re proficient in Japanese, the unlocalized Super Famicom games don’t count in my book.
I wish they updated it so that only new games would remain those big blocks. Kinda weird to see big names like Mario and Zelda shoved at the bottom while the big spots are taken by things like Rygar.
I share the family price with friends, so I think it’s worth the $5 a year. I’m happy with the content we get with NSO. I don’t often hop in there, but I’ve become accustomed to Nintendo adding new consoles each year, so I hope that we see some N64 titles. I would love to play Mario 64 or Mario Party 2.
I'd trade in all this junk for 5 GC games.
Instead of these old roms, they should simply stick up a notice saying "we don't care about online". It would give a better impression, at least it's honest.
@ReikoMortis Wii VC was the best
Have you ever played The Chaos Engine or Shadowrun? Just a couple recommendations not on your SNES list. The Super Star Wars games are excellent too.
For NES, Green Beret is one of my all time favourites. I love Karnov - great pick! 👍
@Moistnado I agree. They seem to be more concerned with selling nostalgia than focusing on stable connections and native party chat.
Dont know if my opinion is unfair, but after 2 years, i find it strange that the switch dosent have the same lineup as the Wii u has. It must be a calculated strategist move by nintendo to serve the VC games over a long span of time. Do someone know how difficult it would be to transfer one SNES game or n64 from Wii u to switch ? Hope we will see n64 and more snes games pop up soon, and hopefully gamecube games also, and who knows, maybe certain wii games also ? Like Wii sports etc.
I'd like to like this service, but it's... kind of a hassle to use, to be honest.
I have a family account, but I'm not using the NES and SNES apps.
I still have my wii u filled with downloads. Until they make a true virtual console service with traditional downloads, as others have said, I'm not interested.
It's still very lacking as nintendo has such a wonderful huge range of games. GameBoyAdvance has a massive collection with some outstanding games.
@TheFullAndy "However on Gold and Plus they are just giving me games that if I already wanted I would have already bought."
This is a really odd thing to say when you take into consideration that games on Xbox Gold or PlayStation Plus are current-gen, a few years old at most, whereas those on Nintendo Online are older than many Switch users' parents. If anything, the old games are the ones you'd have already played, especially because many of them are quite short. (I know you wrote 'bought', but I'll assume most just want to play, no matter how they obtain it.)
Just gimme friggin’ Mario 64 already.
No I meant bought.
I want Game Boy, GBA , N64 and GameCube classics
@Hackleckackle Who said I was blaming you?
As for Square, their petty nonsense is just that. "Not happy with Nintendo"? Please.
Online saves are nice but should be free (offline). I'm not playing online games. Sooooo....the classic library is...ok...but just that. Ok and SEVERELY lacking...
I'd rather pay €5/8 (AGAIN!) for the games of MY CHOISE then these meager offerings made by "Japan's richest company".
@Razer Ahhh ok. Let's have a look. So you consider:
F-Zero = junk.
Super Mario World = junk.
Pilotwings = junk.
Super Ghouls n Ghosts = junk.
Link to the Past = junk.
Super Tennis = junk.
Yoshi's Island = junk.
Mario Kart = junk.
Super Metroid = junk.
Star Fox = junk.
Super Puyo Puyo = junk.
Breath of Fire = junk.
Donkey Kong Country = junk.
Demon's Crest = junk.
Super Mario Bros = junk.
Super Mario Bros 3 = junk.
Legend of Zelda = junk.
NES Open = junk.
Metroid = junk.
Blaster Master = junk.
Gradius = junk.
Punch Out = junk.
Ninja Gaiden = junk.
Kirby's Adventure = junk.
Excite Bike = junk.
Balloon Fight = junk.
Donkey Kong = junk.
Dr. Mario = junk.
Really? What's your 5 Gamecube games?
@WiltonRoots yeah I'm not going to lie, once upon a time you may have been right. But many of these games have been so done to death that yes. I and many others can easily consider this stuff junk.
Most might be classics that helped pave the way, but these days they barely hold up anymore.
I mean... If your content with 20 to 30 year old games, then knock yourself out, but you hardly speak for the majority.
@Razer Neither do you speak for the majority funnily enough...you're speaking for yourself, same as me...lol.
But you'd be happy with five 19 year old games instead? Which ones?
@Hackleckackle I'm using the term @Razer classified those games as, he said he'd rather have five Gamecube games instead but won't list which ones.
@Hackleckackle No problem. I get a feeling there will be some sort of announcement soon as they do seem to add more games once the year of online is almost up, we shall wait and see. No matter what it is though, people will complain it's not enough or it's junk.
@TheFullAndy You buy games in order not to play them?
What? I am saying that for the games that show up on Plus/Gold if I really wanted them I would already have bought them when they first arrived on the systems.
Therefore by the time they show up on Plus/Gold they are games that I would not be interested in, otherwise I would have already bought them.
@Hackleckackle I don’t care; I don’t care about your opinions or thoughts on anything, ever. grow up.
Something tells me there’s gonna be an announcement in a few day’s... reckon it’ll be Gameboy - which I personally don’t mind cause I prefer handheld games
