The Nintendo Switch Online library of NES games is expanding this month, with two new games announced today. The games will be available from January 16.
The latest NES games to join the online library are:
- Blaster Master – It’s panic or perish as you blast through an endless maze of tunnels, seeking secret passages for an escape. Destroy the Plutonium Boss and his mutant cronies before these warlords destroy the earth. Load up your arsenal, and get ready for the final encounter!
- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link – Link returns to Hyrule to search for the Triforce and to awaken Zelda from an endless sleep. Embark on a quest to find the Triforce of Courage and save Hyrule from ruin. Learn magic spells, talk to people in towns to get clues, collect items to increase your power and explore six palaces where the underlings of the evil Ganon await you.
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 Super Mario Bros. 3 and gems like Pro Wrestling.
If you’re new to Nintendo Switch Online, there are other benefits available. 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.
