Nintendo Switch's SNES Games Are Now Live

The SNES games are only available to those with an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription.


The Nintendo Switch finally has SNES games. Announced in September 4's Nintendo Direct, the Switch's SNES offerings are now available to download from the Eshop for all Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.

You can download Super Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online (yes, that's its real name) by going to the Nintendo Switch Online tab of the Eshop and navigating to the Special Offers section. It's a free download that's only available to those with an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription. Amazon Prime members can get Nintendo Switch Online for free through a special promotion but should act fast as that deal ends soon.

20 SNES games are available at launch (see the full list below). Each game supports suspend points (aka save states) and a rewind function that lets you rewind your gameplay to retry that crucial jump or collect that power-up that escaped your grasp.

Nintendo plans to release a SNES-style controller for the Nintendo Switch, though no release date has been revealed. It will retail for $30 USD exclusively available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. We'll report back when Nintendo releases more information.
