Have you been getting tired of the current batch of NES games on the Nintendo Switch? Never fear, because Nintendo just announced two more will be added this month: Kid Icarus and StarTropics. This brings the total number of NES games to 35.
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 March 13, 2019.
Below, you will find a quick trailer and a brief explanation of each game.
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.
Which of these two are you most excited to play? Let us know in the comments.
Games coming in the April 2019 update have not yet been released.
