The Nintendo Switch Online library of NES games is expanding this month, with three new games announced today. The games will be available from December 12.
The latest NES games to join the online library are:
- Adventures of Lolo – After the love of his life, Lala, is kidnapped by the devilish King Egger and taken to his haunted castle, our hero, Lolo, sets out to rescue her. The journey is perilous, as the Great Devil’s fortress is guarded by a massive army. But Lolo has a few tricks up his sleeve. Combining clever environmental puzzles with tricky enemies and an engaging style, Adventures of Lolo is a true classic.
- Ninja Gaiden – Take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa, a rising ninja in his family’s clan who travels to America to seek vengeance for his father’s death. Fight your way through six challenging side-scrolling chapters/14 stages (not including boss battles) while defeating gangs of street thugs, battling evil ninjas and fighting barbarian bosses by using the deadly Dragon Sword, ninja skills and ninja magic.
- Wario’s Woods – Control Toad as he scrambles along the bottom of the screen picking up monsters and bombs and arranging them vertically, horizontally and diagonally to clear the screen of enemies. This game features several modes of play, such as basic, lesson and time race. If you like puzzle games like Dr. Mario, you will definitely love this one!
Nintendo has promised to continue adding NES games to the online collection next year, starting in January.
If you’re new to Nintendo Switch Online, there are other benefits to the controversial service. 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.
