Since its launch last September, the Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online library of classic games has continued to grow. These classic NES games, which range from household names like Super Mario Bros. 3 to hidden gems like Pro Wrestling, have been enhanced with online features and, with the Nintendo Switch system, can be played at home on the TV or on the go.
On Jan. 16, two additional classic NES games will be added to the library of NES – Nintendo Switch Online games: Blaster Master and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
In Blaster Master, it’s panic or perish as you blast through an endless maz of tunnels, seeking secret passages for an escape. Destroy the Plutonium Boss and his mutant cronies before these warlords destroy the earth. Load up your arsenal, and get ready for the final encounter!
In Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Link returns to Hyrule to search for the Triforce and to awaken Zelda from an endless sleep. Embark on a quest to find the Triforce of Courage and save Hyrule from ruin. Learn magic spells, talk to people in towns to get clues, collect items to increase your power and explore six palaces where the underlings of the evil Ganon await you.
With a membership to Nintendo Switch Online, these games (as well as the dozens of other NES games currently included in the NES – Nintendo Switch Online library) can be played at any time.
In addition to classic NES games, Nintendo Switch Online members gain access to online play and Save Data Cloud backup in compatible games, plus a smartphone app that enhances features of supported games.
