Switch Online adds five NES games this week, including modified versions of Metroid and Dr. Mario


Nintendo delivered December’s three Switch Online NES games as promised (Wario’s Woods, Ninja Gaiden, Lolo), but they also sprinkled a few surprises into the mix.

As is customary Nintendo dropped two new SP games on us on the UK storefront: Metroid and Dr. Mario. The former allows players to instantly jump to the Ridley fight with most of the map explored and the latter puts you in a precarious situation at level 20 high speed to view a unique scene. Other regions should have access to these same titles this week.

As I’ve said in the past, SPs have my attention. In a bizarre turn of events Nintendo wanted to save some surprises last-minute instead of just telling us about their online service months ago, which turned some people off of it.
