Nintendo Direct: 20 SNES games coming to Switch, new details on upcoming releases, more
Everything from Wednesday’s video all in one place
Nintendo presented a brand new Nintendo Direct Wednesday and showcased games for the rest of 2019 and beyond.
The 38 minute video included several big announcements and updates.
Perhaps the biggest was that 20 Super Nintendo Entertainment System games, including Super Mario World, F-Zero and more, are coming to Nintendo Switch Online on September 5. That’s tomorrow!
A full list of the initial 20 games is below.
Similar to the NES library, more SNES games will be added to the service at a later date. A wireless SNES controller will be available exclusively to Nintendo Online members for $29.99.
Among the other big announcements were the inclusion of a Luigi’s Mansion 3 multiplayer mode called ScreamPark, Doom 64 is coming to Switch and Deadly Premonition Origins is now available on the eShop.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Direct without Smash Bros. Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury is the fourth Fighters Pass character. With one more to be revealed in the initial five, Nintendo confirmed more DLC fighters will be coming down the line.
There were also plenty of new game announcements, as well as updates on Animal Crossing New Horizons, Pokemon Sword and Shield and more.
The video ended with the announcement of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, which is coming to Nintendo Switch next year. The game is a remaster of the 2012 Wii title.
