SNES games now part of Nintendo Switch Online

by on September 5, 2019

In their latest Nintendo Direct, Nintendo confirmed an extension of their Nintendo Switch Online service. From September 6, 2019, members of the service will now be able to also download a library of 20 SNES games on top of the NEW games already available.

In the absence of a fully-fledged Virtual Console-style library, this expansion into SNES titles is a very welcome one. For the first time you can play classic titles like Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart and A Link to the Past on your Nintendo Switch.

Check out the image below to see a full list of the 20 titles you can expect to play:

To coincide with the launch of SNES titles, Nintendo also revealed a new SNES controller. It takes inspiration from the original SNES controller, but with USB connections like the Switch Pro controller. This new gamepad will retail at £26.99 or €29.99 and will be available from September 18, 2019.
