As promised by Nintendo, this April Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will get free NES games. If you already updated your Nintendo Entertainment System, you will notice this month new lineup. The new titles will be available for all regions. The classic lineup will include the next three games: Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels and Star Soldier.
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
The famous Nintendo classic boxing game. You will embody little Mac, a boxing rookie straight out of the Bronx. You will challenge great rivals such as the fragile-jawed Frenchman Glass Joe and the whole world Video Association circuit. There is a certain nostalgia in Punch-Out!! that you can’t just ignore, and it’s certainly a fun game.
Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels
In 1986 Nintendo launched in Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan. However, Nintendo head director at that time thought the game could be a challenge for the American public. So instead, America got a re-skin from a game called Yume Koujou Doki Doki Panic which was later named Super Mario Bros. 2. The original game first saw the light of day in America as part of 1993’s Super Mario All-Stars collection. The title was called Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels. The Lost Levels version release for the Switch will allow Nintendo users to have access to the original 8-bit game, which is similar to the original Super Mario but way more difficult.
Star Soldier it’s a shooter game, which was originally launched on NES in 1986. The game might not be as famous as the last two games, but without doubt, it’s one of the best vertical scrolling shooters ever made. In Star Soldier, your special mission will be to stop the galactic invasion of Starbrain, a giant computer. Star Soldier will give you a Sekiro experience in a retro way. The game it’s challenging but if you are stubborn by nature, go ahead and enjoy.
In addition to the fantastic lineup, Nintendo will provide a special save state for Kid Icarus. This save state will allow players to play the very last level of Kid Icarus, with some additional perks. This time around, you will confront the Queen of the Underworld, Medusa, while equipped with the three sacred treasures: the Mirror Shield, the Arrow of Light and the Wings of Pegasus.
