Nintendo has announced that one new NES game and two new SNES games have been made available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.
Once you have downloaded the latest software updates for the Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online (version 6.2.0) and Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online (version 3.2.0) apps, you will be able to access these new games which have been added to the service:
- Congo’s Caper (SNES): A club and a little courage are all Congo needs! In this action game, released in 1993 for the Super NES console, you catch up with Congo as some demon-kid swoops in out of nowhere and kidnaps Congette. As Congo, you set out to rescue her and set things right. Luckily a superkid like Congo knows how to jump, attack, and can perform all sorts of jump-attack combos. And once Congo collects three magic rubies, he turns into Super Congo! As Super Congo, he can jump even higher – and hover by jumping repeatedly in midair!
- Pinball (NES): Hit targets and rack up points in this classic pinball game! Featuring a bonus mode starring Nintendo’s legendary character, Mario, you control our hero as he holds a platform and uses it to keep the ball in the air. Your goal is to save Pauline. If she falls and hits the ground, you lose a ball – but if you save her and lead her to the exit, you’ll get a nice surprise! This game is fun and easy to learn, and includes bonus balls for high scorers – and even a two-player mode. This is a game both pinball fans and novices alike can enjoy!
- Rival Turf (SNES): Big Al and the Street Kings think they can take over the streets for themselves. Punch, kick, and slam your way through 6 stages of rough-and-tough action, solo or with a friend! Or go against a friend and see who really owns that turf. Jack Flak and Oozie Nelson bring their brawling skills to the street against Big Al and his gang of miscreants, otherwise known as the Street Kings. Test out a myriad of street-fighting techniques against waves of enemies as a lone hero, or bring a sidekick! You can also turn on Angry Mode. Then, when you get hurt, you get angry – and that’s when your enemies should keep their distance. You’ll ignore damage and hit even harder than usual! And if that’s not enough, you can even battle against a friend or rival in Vs mode to see whose turf is whose.
