Three NES Games Are Coming to Nintendo Switch Online

-

Three NES games are coming to the Nintendo Switch Online service this month, including a star of the Mushroom Kingdom, a star of the boxing ring and a star of, well, the stars themselves! Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream and Star Soldier will all be available to play on the Nintendo Switch system starting on April 10.

Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels has previously made only brief cameo appearances in the Western Hemisphere. Mario fans will appreciate the familiar look and feel of the game, while finding that its updated gameplay creates an entirely new challenge. In addition to the classic enemies already known to fans worldwide, there are also Poison Mushrooms, backward Warp Zones and the occasional wind gust (which can help or hinder your progress).

In Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, players have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to battle the big guys of the World Video Boxing Association circuit as young boxer Little Mac. Take them on one by one, starting with skinny Glass Joe. Battle up through King Hippo and all the way to the WVBA Champion himself. Players use their best jabs, hooks and power uppercuts to knock out opponents, but must also dodge jaw-breaking blows by paying attention to subtle changes in their foe’s body position.

The standard for vertically scrolling shooters, Star Soldier is the original game that spawned all of the titles in the long-running Soldier series. Go inside a floating space station inhabited by a giant computer known as Starbrain. Your mission: to stop Starbrain’s galactic invasion by piloting Caesar, a new compact space fighter, through 16 deadly stages.

These three games join the growing library of classic NES games in the Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online collection. The varied collection currently consists of dozens of games, including Super Mario Bros. 3, Donkey Kong and The Legend of Zelda, among many others. All of these NES games have been enhanced with online features and, using the power of Nintendo Switch, can be played at home on the TV or on the go.

Nintendo Switch Online members also gain access to the free-to-download software Tetris 99 as a special offer. The game includes online events like last month’s “Tetris 99 MAXIMUS CUP.”
