Nintendo has announced the latest content drop for the Switch’s online subscribers. Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3 more arrive next week.
All about the bananas
I have to admit that I thought the second Donkey Kong Country game was already on the Switch’s online SNES. But that’s not in fact the case, as of right now anyway.
It’s a status that changes next week though, as Nintendo drops 4 more classics from the NES and SNES. If you’ve lost count, that ups the ‘free games’ number up to over 90.
Of course, and as usual, all of those are available only for subscribers of the Switch’s paid online services. If that’s you though, then you’ll be playing the below as of September 23rd.
- 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. You can view a video tutorial to help you dive into the game here.
- 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.
