Nintendo Switch Online adds 3 new SNES titles

Posted on July 23, 2021

Nintendo Switch Online’s NES and SNES offerings are fairly decent but somewhat of a mixed bag. There are some truly classic titles on there for fans to enjoy and obscure ones that you may have never heard of.

Of course, there are the likes of Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country, River City Ransom. We also get oddities like Spanky’s Quest, Clu Clu Land, and Tuff E Nuff.

This trend seems to be continuing as the three new titles being added on 28 July are left-field, to say the least: Claymates, Jelly Boy, and Bombuzal. Claymates and Jelly Boy are fairly standard side-scrolling platformers, whilst Bombuzal is an isometric puzzle game. To be fair, the ’90s were a crazy time for games, with all manner of weird and wonderful titles coming out.

Jelly Boy looks like it could be a fun time sink for fans of platformers, and Claymates looks like a weird hybrid of Sonic and Mario games. There are currently over 100 titles spread across both the NES and SNES platforms to enjoy. Bear in mind that you will need an active Nintendo Online subscription to access these. Luckily, these titles have been rendered a little more playable thanks to supporting some more modern features like online play and save states.

The full list of all available games can be viewed on Nintendo’s official website. There is still hope from fans that other console classics from the GameCube and N64 era might be included with the service. At the moment, there is no official announcement of this occurring from Nintendo.

Nintendo continues to dominate with the new and classic games on offer from their legendary IPs, and the recently announced OLED Switch model should provide a more vibrant and crisper screen to experience these titles on.
