New Games for NES Online – December 2018

The Nintendo Entertainment System on Nintendo Switch Online is about to get another update. On December 12, Nintendo will add three more games: Wario’s Woods, Ninja Gaiden, and Adventures of Lolo. All will contain the same ability to save your game progress with suspend points and play online with friends. This update will bring the total number of NES games to 29.

If you want some time with these games, you can sign up for a free trial of the Nintendo Switch Online service on your Switch eShop or on Nintendo’s website. If you already have a paid subscription, these games should hit the NES app via a software update on December 12.

Below, you will find a brief explanation of each game along with a quick trailer showcasing each title.

Adventures of Lolo – After the love of his life, Lala, is kidnapped by the devilish King Egger and taken to his haunted castle, our hero, Lolo, sets out to rescue her. The journey is perilous, as the Great Devil’s fortress is guarded by a massive army. But Lolo has a few tricks up his sleeve. Combining clever environmental puzzles with tricky enemies and an engaging style, Adventures of Lolo is a true classic.

Ninja Gaiden – Take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa, a rising ninja in his family’s clan who travels to America to seek vengeance for his father’s death. Fight your way through six challenging side-scrolling chapters/14 stages (not including boss battles) while defeating gangs of street thugs, battling evil ninjas and fighting barbarian bosses by using the deadly Dragon Sword, ninja skills and ninja magic.

Wario’s Woods – Control Toad as he scrambles along the bottom of the screen picking up monsters and bombs and arranging them vertically, horizontally and diagonally to clear the screen of enemies. This game features several modes of play, such as basic, lesson and time race. If you like puzzle games like Dr. Mario, you will definitely love this one!

Which of these three are you most excited to play? Let us know in the comments.

Games coming in the January 2019 update have not yet been released.
