Four more classic Nintendo games are now available on the Nintendo Switch Online service.
Most noticeably is the addition of Rare's 1995 release Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. The two other games for SNES include Mario's Super Picross by Jupiter (releasing for the first time in the US) and The Peace Keepers by Jaleco. Last but not least is Natsume's sci-fi shoot 'em up S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team for the NES.
Here's the official rundown of each game, courtesy of the Nintendo press release:
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest – Kaptain K. Rool and his Kremlings have kidnapped Donkey Kong. Enter Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong, who are ready to brave the seas to save our hairy hero. Diddy Kong's Cartwheel can sprint him across a distance, while Dixie Kong's Helicopter Spin will let her float from high places. Play solo or with a friend in eight exciting worlds. All aboard, and let's set sail!
Mario’s Super Picross – Use numbers as clues and chisel away squares to bring a hidden image to the surface, with Mario cheering you on as you progress through the game’s puzzles. You can get a friend in on the excavation too. Two chisels are better than one! This puzzle game launched on the Super Famicom™ system in 1995 and has never been released in the U.S. until now.
The Peace Keepers – The DM Corp is responsible for a new string of troubling incidents. It's up to Flynn and his crew to rise up and stop them. Progress through each stage by executing on the deep action gameplay and unleashing each character's unique super attacks. The story changes based on the route you take!
S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team– In the year 2029, Supreme Commander Vile Malmort and his army land on Earth, aiming for world domination. Your main objective is to send these alien invaders packing. Blast and fly through relentless enemies and bosses while collecting new weapons, speed boosts and life recoveries. Get ready, soldier. You're Earth's only hope.
If you happen to have access to Japan's Super Famicom app, there's also one extra game you might be interested in checking out. The 1994 release, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem. Keep in mind, all of the text is in Japanese. Read more about this game in our previous post.
