At long last, Nintendo's much-requested library of SNES games for Switch Online subscribers is here, but its arrival also brings with it news that the company is moving away from its current regular monthly delivery schedule of classic games.
When the NES library for Switch launched last September, it featured a total of 20 titles - the same number included with the newly arrived SNES library. Since then, an additional 28 NES games have been introduced, arriving in batches of 2-4 titles each month. Moving forward, however, SNES and NES games will be added to their respective apps on a more irregular basis.
News of the change was initially shared on Nintendo's Japanese website, and the company's western arm has since confirmed, via a statement to Vooks, that while more games are coming, "those releases will not adhere to a regular schedule".
Consistency is good, this is bad.
