Nintendo Switch Online Adds Four New Retro Games

Kirby's Dream Land 2 headlines the group, which also includes NES and SNES games.


Slowly but surely, Nintendo continues to build out the retro games library for Nintendo Switch Online members. The company has added four more titles for subscribers, headlined by Kirby's Dream Land 2 on Game Boy.

The three other games are BurgerTime Deluxe on Game Boy, Xevious on NES, and Side Pocket on SNES. It was only last month when Nintendo introduced Game Boy titles for Switch Online members, with standouts like Metroid II: Return of Samus, Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX, and Tetris.

Nintendo also brought Game Boy Advance into the fold, but those titles are for the premium Switch Online + Expansion Pass members. It's $20 yearly for a Switch Online membership, while the expansion tier costs $50 annually.

The Game Boy library on Nintendo Switch Online now stands at 11 titles. Nintendo has already confirmed four more games are coming soon, including Pokemon Trading Card Game, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages, and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons.
