Nintendo Switch Online hits over 100 retro games


Nintendo has reached another high point as its retro games included in the Nintendo Switch Online services surpasses the 100 mark. On May 26, the subscription service will add five more classic games to its diverse lineup, bringing the total count of its ’80s and ’90s games to 104.

The list consists of 1991 prehistoric arcade game Caveman Ninja: Joe & Mac, 1996 puzzle game Magical Drop 2, 1991 traditional baseball game Super Baseball Simulator 1.000, a Game Boy and SNES action game about a monkey with a magic bubble called Spanky’s Quest, and 1985 popular Jaleco NES action game Ninja JaJaMaru-kun.

Nintendo has begun adding NES games to Switch Online on a monthly basis in 2018. In September 2019, the Japanese gaming giant released 20 classic SNES titles to the online service and later announced that it will discontinue dropping NES games regularly.

While the titles coming to Switch Online this month aren’t really smash hits, it’ll still do good in giving you a dose of nostalgia.

In other Nintendo news, the gaming powerhouse records its most profitable year ever with ¥640 billion (P282 billion) earned in operating profit and ¥679 billion (P298 billion) in gross profit from April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021.
