The two new NES games added to the NES – Nintendo Switch Online service are among the best ever released on the console – Kid Icarus and StarTropics. Kid Icarus is definitely the more popular of the two, also thanks to the inclusion of Pit and Palutena in the Super Smash Bros. series.

The new NES – Nintendo Switch Online update also added two new SP editions of already available games. Kirby’s Adventure SP Edition allows players to start playing the game from the Extra Game difficulty right from the start. This difficulty is only unlocked after completing the game.

The Zelda II: The Adventure of Link SP Edition gives players Attack, Magic, and Life all maxed out at level eight. Players don’t get any item from the start, but the maxed out stats will make the game extremely easy.

The NES – Nintendo Switch Online games are available to all Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The currently available NES games available on the service are among the best ever released, like all the classic Super Mario Bros. games, Metroid, the original The Legend of Zelda and many others.
