The free NES and SNES games for Nintendo Switch will be released on an irregular basis

Switch SNES Games

The introduction of SNES games in the Switch Online catalog seems to have had a repercussion on the timing of their publication, at least according to what emerged from the Nintendo of Japan website.

In a note from Nintendo’s official Japanese website, there is the talk of a publication that from September onwards will follow random and irregular intervals, thus abandoning the monthly release that marked the first year of life of Nintendo Switch Online. The news seems to concern only Japan for the moment but some Australian sites have received a Nintendo release in which they talk about the desire to make the publication of NES and SNES games for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers aperiodic.

It is not clear whether Europe and the United States will also follow this new distribution policy, so we await clarification from Nintendo of Europe. We remind you that the first twenty SNES games are now available :

  • F-Zero
  • Pilotwings
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • Brawl Brothers
  • Breath of Fire
  • Demon’s Crest
  • Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics
  • Super EDF Earth Defense Force
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Ghouls’n Ghosts
  • Super Puyo 2
  • Super Soccer
  • Super Tennis
  • The Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past
  • Super Metroid
  • Stunt Race FX
  • Kirby’s Dream Land 3
  • Super Mario World 2 Yoshi’s Island
  • Star Fox

It should be noted in any case that the introduction of games for Super Nintendo has not contributed to increasing the price of the subscription, which remained unchanged despite the new wave of titles.
