Nintendo has just announced the first batch of SNES and NES games coming to the Switch Online service. All up, we've got a total of four releases.
On SNES, we've got Telenet's 2D action-platformer from 1992, Psycho Dream. This game was also exclusive to the Japanese market. In addition to this, is Doomsday Warrior from the same year and company, and the third is Prehistorik Man - originally released in 1995 and developed by Titus France.
The sole NES offering for this month is Tecmo's Fire 'n Ice - perhaps better known as Soloman's Key 2 (technically a prequel) from 1992. Below is the full rundown about each game, courtesy of the official Nintendo press release:
Psycho Dream – When Sayaka doesn’t return to reality after entering an immersive virtual world known as a D-Movie, the protagonists, Ryo and Maria, must progress through a terrifying fantasy game called Legend of the Fallen Capital to rescue her and bring her back to reality.
DOOMSDAY WARRIOR – It’s the Doomsday Warrior versus the Doom Squad! This action game features an evil sorcerer who has recruited seven warriors to take over Earth. But one of the Doom Squad has resisted the influence and now stands against the rest as the Doomsday Warrior!
Prehistorik Man – Sam the caveman’s quest to save his village begins! Sam lives in a village whose food is stolen by dinosaurs. To get more, Sam must collect bones, which he can then use to buy food. On his way, he’ll need to make use of a variety of weapons, vehicles and attacks, including shouting, to attack all on-screen foes. Can Sam reach the dinosaur graveyard and collect enough bones?
Fire ’n Ice – As Dana, you have been chosen by the Queen of the Winter Fairies to bear the power of ice magic. With it, you must defend your home, Coolmint Island, from the wicked wizard Druidle and his flames!
Each of these titles will be released next week on 17th February. To access them, you'll need to have a Nintendo Switch Online membership. In related news, Japan will be receiving Shin Megami Tensei II this month. Learn more about this game in our other post.
