Nintendo Switch Online is getting six more games and the Switch NES controllers are going on sale

Just in time for the doldrums of December

On Monday, I wrote an article about Nintendo Switch Online its lack of new SNES and NES games. I said all I wanted for Christmas was some new titles on the service, and I guess there is a Santa Claus because Nintendo has revealed six new games are being added on December 12. Now, I’m not saying it was my little article that made this all happen, but what I am saying is I’ll gladly be taking credit for it. So, you’re welcome.

They may not be Donkey Kong Country, but Super Punch-Out!! and Kirby Super Star are two absolute treasures from the 16-bit era of gaming.

With these additions, Nintendo Switch Online will have 50 NES and 24 SNES games available for subscribers. Additionally, Nintendo has announced it is putting the Switch NES Controllers on sale for a limited time. Between December 6 and January 10, 2020, you can pick up a pair of controllers for $29.99. As a reminder: you must be a paying Nintendo Switch Online subscriber to purchase them.
