Rumor: Switch Online Leak Reveals Unreleased NES Titles, Here’s a Sneak Peek
It’s been an absolutely wild week for Nintendo Switch Online with a slew of leaks and rumours, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. In the latest development, footage of unreleased NES games for Switch’s paid subscription service has now surfaced via an online leak.
Below is a side-by-side video comparison of the current version and a “master version” version of the NES Online app (via Twitter user @orcastraw). As can be seen there are all sorts of additional games included here such as Tetris, Pac manmany mega man games and other titles like Castlevania. There are also a number of additional “SP” games on display.
The catch is that this is a release apparently from October 2019, which means there’s no guarantee that Switch Online subscribers will necessarily see these games made available on the Nintendo Switch. NES application in the future. Of course, this could also be a reveal of games coming to the service in the future.
Nintendo is currently focusing on monthly N64 releases, but perhaps they can add these additional games to their schedule as well. In February, he surprised fans with the Earthbound games on the NES and SNES services.
This latest Switch Online rumor follows news earlier this week that Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games may also be on the way. A list of tested games has reportedly been revealed, and some are also claiming that Switch Online could benefit from Transfer Pak support between N64 and Game Boy services.
