Nintendo Switch Online launched last September with a digital library of 20 NES games available to all subscribers. Since then, they’ve been adding more games to that library each week, including Ninja Gaiden, Super Mario Bros. 2, and more. That library is set to expand once again on March 13th.
Nintendo Switch Online users will soon be able to enjoy two additional games:
Kid Icarus and StarTropics. This will differ in Japan where StarTropics is replaced by both Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Yie Ar Kung-Fu. You can watch a trailer above, and you can peruse descriptions for the latest Nintendo Switch Online games below.
Kid Icarus – The evil goddess Medusa has stolen the Three Sacred Treasures and imprisoned the goddess of light, Palutena, in her evil plot to control all. Play as Pit, a young angel who has been entrusted with a magical bow and arrow. Fight against hordes of enemies that swoop from above and below. Secure the Three Sacred Treasures from their evil guardians, equip them and face Medusa in the final battle.
StarTropics – Step into the shoes of Mike Jones, a teenage star pitcher from Seattle, who has come to the tropics to visit his famous archaeologist uncle, Dr. Jones. After being told that his uncle has been abducted, Mike begins a perilous quest in order to rescue him and figure out the mysterious plot behind his disappearance. Luckily for Mike, he meets helpful villagers and finds more powerful weapons as he explores numerous locations and island hops using his uncle’s submarine.
