Two SNES games and a classic NES enrich the catalog of the Nintendo Switch Online service and there is something for everyone.
This month, Nintendo is spoiling retrogaming fans with three new additions to its catalog of classic games. No Nintendo 64 title in sight at the moment, but fans of the NES and the Super NES will be able to find a skewer of games that marked these consoles in their time.
Whether you are a fan of platformof beat em all or even from pinballknow that Nintendo has some good surprises in store for you this month.
The Super Nintendo in the spotlight
The Kyoto firm’s 16-bit console catalog receives not one, but two games this month, adding to an already busy list. Thus, it is now possible to find Congo’s Caper and Rival Turf in the application dedicated to the SNES on your Nintendo Switch.
Congo’s Caper is a very classic platform game, but which is therefore just as effective. Released in 1993 in Europe, you play as Congo, a monkey transformed into a human by a magic ruby who will have to save his sweetheart kidnapped by a demon. With its endearing style and lively gameplay, this game will make a perfect alternative to the usual games of mario bros.
On the other side, Rival Turf offers a combat experience not unlike that of other classics like Streets of Rage. In this beat’em all, it’s up to you to protect the city from an evil gang (as so often in this kind of game). Nothing new under the sun, but a game like this sure serves as a great stress reliever. In addition, it is possible to play it in cooperation for even more fighting and fun.
A monument of arcades
An arcade without a pinball machine is not one. In 1985, Nintendo decided to bring this classic to living rooms around the world with Pinball. This game then becomes accessible to a number of households who no longer need to go to the local arcade room and pay for each game.
A little extra charm, the pinball machines offered are not ordinary and are embellished with two Nintendo icons of the time: Mario and Pauline. It is also in this game that Mario’s friend appears for the first time with her brown tint as we know her today.
Going with the usual Nintendo trend, June should also see the arrival of a new Nintendo 64 game. Pokemon Snap remains the last game that Nintendo has already made official, but not yet released. After Mario Golf and Kirby 64this spin-off from Pokemon should land very soon on the online service of the Switch.
