The subscription-based Nintendo Switch Online just got a quartet of fresh classic games, hailing from the NES, SNES, and Game Boy eras.
Gotta get back in time
Nintendo continues to support the heck out of the Switch Online subscription, with plenty of new titles to keep fans busy. It wasn’t long ago that the Game Boy Advance corner of the service got a heaping dose of Mario titles, and now we’re back with even more.
Well, we should probably clarify since it’s not more Mario we’re talking about here. But be that as it may, there are 4 new titles to grab and play on your Switch, and some of those are from pretty big name franchises.
Here’s what just arrived:
- Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble – When you move, Kirby moves! This action game was released for the Game Boy™ Color system in 2001 and features the ever-adorable Kirby! In this game, it’s all about how Kirby tilts and tumbles! This twist on classic Kirby gameplay adds new levels of fun. Kirby moves left, right, forward and backward based on the movement of the system you hold in your hands! This version replicates the motion controls from the original Game Boy Color version. Tilt your Nintendo Switch system or controller to play. Go, Kirby, go!
- Blaster Master: Enemy Below – Jason and his legendary battle vehicle, SOPHIA, are back again to save the world. Using the strong weapons and high jumping power of SOPHIA, Jason must head to subterranean regions and eliminate everything in his path. In narrow places, Jason can exit SOPHIA and move through catacombs on foot. In the catacombs, control Jason in top-down view and battle with guns and grenades! Swap in and out of your vehicle and adapt to the situation to succeed!
- Harvest Moon – Discover the roots of the farming simulator genre in Harvest Moon! Take in the natural beauty and breathe the fresh country air. Experience firsthand the down-to-earth goodness of life on a farm! Your challenge is to dig in and build your life as a farmer with old-fashioned hard work and dedication. You have a modest house, so it’s going to take a remodel to woo a farming companion. Success in this game is measured by the fruits of your labor, so remember – you always reap what you sow!
- Mystery Tower – Use wit and skill to reach the top of the tower! This game launched for the Famicom™ system in Japan in 1986 and is packed with puzzles and action! Play the role of archaeologist and explorer and set your sights on the top of the tower. Clear stages by moving and rearranging mysterious stones to reach the exit and proceed to the next floor.
Just a reminder too, that Switch Online services are subscription-based, so you’ll need a sub to dig into any of these titles. And on top of that, you’ll need the beefed-up Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack sub if you wanna get down on the above Game Boy offerings. That extended arm of the service also includes GBA games, as well as N64 and Sega Genesis titles.
