Nintendo to update Switch’s SNES library with DKC, Natsume wrestling

Ready for another round of SNES (and NES) titles on the Switch’s subscriber service? A true classic is coming up with the original Donkey Kong Country.

Going to the country

There are quite a few Super Nintendo games that have stood the test of time. The best of these showcase the pinnacle of the 16bit era’s graphics, and exceptional play control. That being something of a specialty for Nintendo, they do tend to be first-party games.

Each one of those points gets hit by a game that’s on the way for Switch online subscribers this month, since we’re getting Donkey Kong Country. The first of three games, the original DKC is a true classic, and it has basically been that since it was released.

Not that it’s alone this month though. The service is also getting Natsume Championship Wrestling. Definitely one of the lesser knowns 16bit grapplers, NCW does sound interesting nonetheless. In particular, that the game offers a massive amount of moves per wrestler.

So that’s what’s coming up for the SNES side of things, but Nintendo is very much still supporting their ‘virtual’ NES as well. This month brings The Immortal for that.

All of the above lands on July 15th. Scroll down for the official rundown.
