A fresh infusion of classic Nintendo titles will shortly be aded to Switch’s online subscription service. The slate includes Rygar, Wild Guns, and more.
It’s over 80!
We all know that the Switch still has no Virtual Console. I’m not happy about it, you’re not happy about it. Well, maybe you’ve long given up on it yourself, or you never cared in the first place. I’m still little salty. Either way though, Nintendo has done a terrific job with their subscriber exclusive NES/SNES slate. I have to admit that.
These games are ‘free’ to download and play if you are a paid subscriber to the Switch’s online service. And as of next week, the library will be at 82.
Granted some of these are doubles, thanks to altered versions of classics existing alongside the original releases. Still, 80 games is a very solid number. And when you consider that they’re all essentially bonuses for subscribing to online play. It’s kind of hard to argue that.
The latest batch too, adds in some legit classics. That’s including Rygar and Wild Guns, but also Operation Logic Bomb and former Japan-exclusive Panel de Pon.
Here’s what’s coming up on May 20th:
- Wild Guns – The Kid gang and their army of robots have taken over! Blast your way through villainous outlaws, diabolical robots and towering, screen-filling bosses. Fortunately, you’ve got plenty of moves to help you survive the firepower headed your way. You’ll need a sharp eye and quick-on-the-draw reflexes to survive on your own. Or team up with a friend and go out blazing in two-player co-op.
- Panel de Pon – As the stack of puzzle pieces rises, think fast to match panels and set off cascading chain reactions and combos. You’ll have to make strategic choices quickly to counteract the relentless competitor attacks from above. A selection of single-player and two-player modes and options provides escalating action and zippy fun. This title originally launched for the Super Famicom in 1995, but this is the first time this version of the game will be available in the U.S. Though this title was never translated into English, it may seem familiar!
- Operation Logic Bomb – Agent Logan has been fitted with bioelectronic implants that grant him superior strength, reflexes and analytical abilities. He’s been charged with a mission to save the Subspace Particle Transfer Project. Now it’s up to him to infiltrate, neutralize the intruders and rescue the scientists in a top-down shooter with giant bosses and frenzied action that doesn’t let up.
- Rygar– An old legend proclaimed, “When the peaceful land is covered with evil spirits, a brave soldier will be brought to life from the dead.” Luckily, Rygar, the mythical hero from Argus, has arrived in order to defeat the evil king Ligar and his army of dangerous beasts. Join forces with Rygar for a hybrid action-adventure game with a distinct blend of platforming and role-playing elements!
