Nintendo took the path Xbox, and PlayStation followed when they started offering a paid subscription service for online playing on the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch Online service provides a plethora of services like cloud saves and the rest. Still, the real fun comes from a massive library of NES and Super NES games available via emulator apps meant for that very reason.

Also, Nintendo Online Switch NES and Super NES emulation come with some whistles and extra bells. So what does that mean? For instance, players can rewind or suspend the current states to give themselves extra chances of getting past those QWERTY challenges. Also, Nintendo offers the ‘SP’ versions of games, which provide players extra leg on any competition.

When they first started, the first batch of NES games was joined by other titles each month. As a way to celebrate their first anniversary, Nintendo came about Super NES games, while they announced the dismissal of new batches of games added monthly. Contrary to that decision, Nintendo recently added six latest games (not new per se, but still new) on its Switch console.

Here’s a rundown of today’s release; Super Punch-Out, Kirby Super Star, Crystalis, Breath of Fire II, Journey To Silius, and Star Fox 2.

Here’s a list of SNES games released today:
