The Nintendo Switch Online library of NES games is expanding, with three new games announced today. This includes the classic Double Dragon II: The Revenge. All three games will be available from June 12.
The latest NES games to join the online library are:
- Double Dragon II: The Revenge – Billy and Jimmy Lee, the Double Dragons, are back to avenge the loss of Marian. In their quest to defeat the evil Shadow Warriors, Billy and Jimmy must complete nine missions, facing deadly street gangs, ninjas and huge mutant fighters. Can Billy and Jimmy contend with the enemies placed before them and ultimately save the world?
- Volleyball – Enjoy a game of volleyball as you spike for a point, slam a perfect serve and make a save that wins the game for your team. As captain, you’ll lead your team through a fast-paced warm-up round, and then quickly move into the heat of real volleyball competition. The first team to 15 points wins the set, and the first team to win three sets takes the match.
- City Connection – After breaking into an exclusive paint store in New York City, you’re on the run from the cops! Carrying leaky 10-gallon cans of paint, drive over every mile of New York City highways before catching a boat to England. From there, you will go on a tour of the world, avoiding the police and leaking paint everywhere you go.
With a membership to Nintendo Switch Online, these games – along with the dozens of NES games already available – can be played any time. Since launching last September, the Nintendo Switch Online library of classic games has grown, with the likes of Kid Icarus, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Pro Wrestling. You’ll also have access to the exclusive online game Tetris 99.
If you’re new to Nintendo Switch Online, there are other benefits too. Apart from access to the growing collection of NES games, the main attraction is the ability to play compatible games online. You can also save data to the cloud and there’s a handy smartphone app that enhances features of supported games. It’s $3.99 per month, or $19.99 for the full year, plus a seven-day trial for those on the fence.
