4 New Genesis/Mega Drive games added to Nintendo Switch Online: Expansion Pack



This might catch some people by surprise, but Nintendo added 4 new Genesis/Mega Drive games to their Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. The 4 games are:

Comix Zone
Target Earth
Zero Wing
Mega Man: The Wily Wars

To play these games, you have to update the software to v2.2.0 and have access to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack.

I don't really complain, because they're all free for me anyway. I'd never pay actual money for this service.
You pay to play online and don't care about the "free" games? Okay.

I've never liked the idea of paying to play online so I refuse it across all platforms.

Imagine still paying for this service ;O;
I bought the EP just for OOT, I finished Banjo on XBL so i don't need the less superior version. In the end. I only use it for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Thats it.

I don't pay for anything on my Switch. All the games on the Switch are free games to me.

Jokes aside as much as i like Comix Zone and Mega Man, this dripfeed shit is getting on my nerves and it's sad that the actual GENESIS COLLECTION has more going for Genesis games right now, and that's a downgraded port of a pretty old collection from the 2010s. damn Nintendo, damn...

It's a good selection, but Nintendo should be offering GCN/Wii or even Switch games as part of the service.

Even the more expensive only gets you N64 titles. 😕
I'll start clamoring for GameCube games only after Game Boy and GBA games get added. They gotta be next, and realistically it might be the end of these services, I feel like once games start getting to be a gig or two big each, is where its less reasonable for Nintendo to keep handing out these free games to these systems with only up to 64GB of built in memory. I suppose they could change it at that point and have the service ask you which games you want to download or not, but I've always viewed the GameCube as realistically the cutoff point for feasible services in Nintendo Switch Online. I also don't think DS is on the table just because of how unreasonable that system would play on the Switch, made sense for the nature of the Wii U, but not really so for the Switch.

Nintendo fanboys are loyal and very rarely criticize or protest so you see why Nintendo gets away with it.

If it were EA, Activision, Microsoft, Sony? Yeah, no way in hell.

no idea how anyone gets this idea, all i ever see is people complaining about nintendo.
and they're not doing worse than any other company. people complain about incomplete games on all systems but still buy day one, ea, activision, microsoft and sony are all still in business, shitty rehashs, day one broken games, seperate online account requirement, drifting controllers and all.

i like the wily wars btw. used to play it a ton on 3ds

Is there a place or website where I can look for Genesis games that you remember what the game looks like but you don't know the name of it?

More crappy emulators to add to N's selection of non-new software for the Snitch. Yawn. This and a new generation of tired old overpriced franchise games really does not inspire me. I don't even understand why anyone bothered to hack such a trashy tablet with bad battery life and junk joysticks. Any flea market RS-90 handheld can play all the Genesis games and loads more for cheap, without having to sign up for any bullshit account or oppressive App store.
