Nintendo Switch Online Adds 3 More SNES Games On July 28

Three more titles are coming to NSO's SNES library next week.


Nintendo has added a few more titles to Nintendo Switch Online's classic games library. Three additional SNES games are now available to play on the service, but like the past few NSO updates, the Western selections are all pretty obscure, consisting of Claymates, Jelly Boy, and Bombuzal.

Both Claymates and Jelly Boy are side-scrolling platformers, while Bombuzal is an isometric puzzler. You can check out the new titles in the trailer below. Japan, meanwhile, has once again received a largely different lineup of games this month. In place of Jelly Boy and Claymates, the Japanese service has added Dead Dance and Shin Megami Tensei If.

To date, there are more than 100 games across Switch Online's NES and SNES libraries, including classics like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario All-Stars, Super Metroid, and more. Each title supports some modern conveniences, including online play, save states, and the ability to rewind. You can see the full list of classic games on Nintendo's website.

The SNES and NES libraries are included in a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, along with other perks such as cloud save backups, the ability to play online, and some exclusive offers. Individual memberships typically cost $4 for one month, $8 for three months, and $20 for one year, while an annual family plan runs for $35 and covers up to eight Nintendo Accounts across multiple systems.

If you're interested in trying the service out before subscribing, Nintendo is offering a free seven-day NSO trial right now through its My Nintendo rewards program. Keep in mind that the trial will automatically convert into a monthly membership after it ends unless you turn off automatic renewal.

In other Nintendo Switch news, the free-to-play Pokemon MOBA spin-off, Pokemon Unite, recently launched on the console. Everyone who downloads the game and logs in by August 31 will receive a free bonus Pokemon: Zeraora.
