Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online has been updated with three new games this month in Metroid, Mighty Bomb Jack and Twinbee. But, as with last month, Nintendo has thrown in an extra surprise.
Gradius SP – or Gradius: Stage 5 and maxed out! as it is otherwise called – has been added as an unexpected fourth game.
“The Vic Viper’s never been stronger” the game’s description explains. “In this special version, you’ll begin from stage 5 of 7 armed to the teeth with all the strongest equipment, including Laser instead of Double (apologies to all the Double fans out there).”
Nintendo will add Adventures of Lolo, Ninja Gaiden and Wario’s Woods to the service in December, with more games to be announced for the months beyond that.
The pricing plans for Nintendo Switch Online are £3.49 ($3.99) per month, £6.99 ($7.99) for three months or £17.99 ($19.99) for 12 months.
There is a 12 month Family Membership for £31.49 ($34.99) that allows a Nintendo Account holder to “invite up to seven others to join a family group” that will all have access to Nintendo Switch Online.
