Each month, the NES Online service continues to grow. While we here at NintendoFuse wished it was by more than two or three titles, we are grateful for what we are getting. And we’re also grateful they have not removed any games yet, which was one of the concerns we had back when the service was announced.
This month, we’re getting three additional titles from the NES era: Double Dragon II: The Revenge, Volleyball, and City Connection. This brings the total number of games to 44, not counting all the special editions of the various games.
This service is, of course, available for free to anyone who has purchased the Nintendo Switch Online service and should be updated to include these titles on June 12, 2019.
Below, you will find a quick trailer and a brief explanation of each game.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge – Billy and Jimmy Lee, the Double Dragons, are back to avenge the loss of Marian. In their quest to defeat the evil Shadow Warriors, Billy and Jimmy must complete nine missions, facing deadly street gangs, ninjas and huge mutant fighters. Can Billy and Jimmy contend with the enemies placed before them and ultimately save the world?
Volleyball – Enjoy a game of volleyball as you spike for a point, slam a perfect serve and make a save that wins the game for your team. As captain, you’ll lead your team through a fast-paced warm-up round, and then quickly move into the heat of real volleyball competition. The first team to 15 points wins the set, and the first team to win three sets takes the match.
City Connection – After breaking into an exclusive paint store in New York City, you’re on the run from the cops! Carrying leaky 10-gallon cans of paint, drive over every mile of New York City highways before catching a boat to England. From there, you will go on a tour of the world, avoiding the police and leaking paint everywhere you go.
Which of these three are you most excited to play? Let us know in the comments.
Games coming in the July 2019 update have not yet been released.
