The Nintendo Switch has added dozens more games on its Eshop again, and this week the standouts are almost all retro favorites. The additions, some of which are coming through next week, include Mega Man Zero/ZX Collection, Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition, and the Double Dragon / Kunio-kun Bundle.

The MMZ/ZX Collection compiles six games that first appeared on the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS: Mega Man Zero 1-4, ZX, and ZX Advent. The Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition brings back the stylish demon-slaying action game from the PS2 era, with a few new bells and whistles like local co-op. The Double Dragon and Kunio-kun includes classics like Double Dragon 1-3, along with Kunio-kun games like River City Ransom and Super Dodge Ball, along with several that haven't been released in the US before. Another notable (but not particularly retro) release is One Finger Death Punch 2, the sequel to the stickman brawler.

These also join the free NES and SNES games included in a Switch Online subscription this week--Shadow of the Ninja and Eliminator Boat Duel on NES, and Pop'n TwinBee and Smash Tennis on SNES. The SNES games are rarities since they've never had a US release before.
