Starting today, players all over the world can enjoy Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Punch-Out!! and Star Soldier. All three titles are excellent games, but Punch-Out!! is probably the best of the bunch, and it holds up incredibly well even decades after its original release.


Also added to the NES – Nintendo Switch Online this month is an SP version of Kid Icarus. In this version, players start at the very last stage of the game with all three sacred treasures, the Mirror Shield, the Arrow of Light and the Wings of Pegasus. These three treasures make Pit incredibly powerful, which makes the battle against Medusa almost trivial.

NES – Nintendo Switch Online is available to all Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.
