Nintendo Switch Online: ‘Donkey Kong Country’ and More Retro Games are Arriving This Month

If you’re nostalgic about SNES and NES games or even a true fan of them, you’ll definitely love what Nintendo will bring this month for the subscribers of its Switch Online service. Donkey Kong Country, a highly-popular SNES game released in 1994, will arrive for Nintendo Switch Online along with other two titles: Natsume Championship Wrestling (SNES) and The Immortal (NES).

SNES and NES games can still be a load of fun, regardless of what the new generation of gamers might say.

The games arrive on July 15

We have to wait less than a week if we want to get our hands on either one of the titles mentioned earlier. Nintendo itself made the announcement via Twitter, along with a presentation video:

For a fee of only $4 a month or $20 a year, Switch Online offers you the possibility of playing 85 retro games that can remind you of childhood. Among the roster we find the following titles:

  • Stunt Race FX™
  • The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™
  • Super Metroid™
  • Star Fox™
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Breath of Fire II
  • Pop’n TwinBee
  • Smash Tennis
  • Operation Logic Bomb
  • Wild Guns
  • Panel de Pon
  • F-ZERO™
  • Demon’s Crest
  • Super Soccer
  • Super Puyo Puyo 2
  • Of Fire
  • Kirby’s Dream Land™ 3
  • Super Ghouls’n Ghosts™
  • Super Mario World™ 2: Yoshi’s Island™
  • Super Mario Kart™
  • Super Tennis
  • Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics
  • Star Fox 2
  • Super Punch-Out!!

Games don’t necessarily have to occupy large amounts of RAM, GPU memory, and storage in order to be fun to play. A game for SNES consoles (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) occupies a maximum of a few megabytes, while any game for the NES consoles (Nintendo Entertainment System) occupies less than half of one lousy megabyte. While it may sound incredible and amusing to those gamers who didn’t grow up with the consoles as most of us did, those games are still highly-played today.
