    Are you ready for more NES games? Because it's a brand new month, which means a brand new pair of retro games are about to be added to the catalog of playable NES titles for those that subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online. This month sees the addition of Kung-Fu Heroes and Vice: Project Doom, on August 21st. The former is a 1986 port of a 1984 arcade game, which is a beat-em-up that supports coop play with up to two players. Meanwhile, the latter is a side-scrolling action-platformer, with a few slight similarities to a more well-known NES title, Ninja Gaiden. Vice: Project Doom was developed by Aicom, a subsidiary of Sammy Industries, and Kung-Fu Heroes was created by a company now known as Culture Brain.

    Just how obscure are these releases gonna get before they finally start giving us SNES games?

    They'll do SNES games on the day the Switch 2 comes out.

    And claim, that the old switch can't emulate SNES. Oh wait... We've had this before...

    They'll do that once they can figure out how to engineer the joy-con slides onto SNES controllers and still have the same L+R as the originals. Also once they can figure out how to charge an ungodly amount of money for them (compared to the $9.99 NES mini's controller or the SNES Classic mini's included controllers.). I already don't feel like paying $60 for a pair of controllers, of which I have a dozen nearly-identical ones sitting around from over the years. I also don't feel like shelling that out on two nostalgia turds when I could have a more useful single controller (clickable analogs, triggers, motion controls, etc.) for the same price, authenticity be damned.


    I actually just wish they'd release a cheap way to connect the wired controllers from the NES/SNES classic to the switch. Literally a firmware update would let us connect a Wii Remote and use the classic controllers through the bottom connector.

    Regarding the high prioce of the NES Controllers (and possible SNES Controllers):
    My NES Switch Controllers are still in their packaging, hoping that I will be able to sell them in the future for a good price. And since they were limited to one order each person I am not "stealing" someones controllers, so don't come at me with that argument (yes, I had this talk more than one time).

    If Nintendo releases SNES Controllers I will do the same. The JoyCons / Pro Controller / SFC30 from 8bit-do are good enough for NES / SNES games.
    I look at it like a "long term investment".

    Regarding SNES Games: When was the SNES Controller Icon in the Switch FW found? And is it still in the current firmware?
    My one year subscription which I started at day one (Sept. 18) has to be renewed in a few month. I gues that this will be the point where Nintendo will talk about SNES games, for the 1 year aniversary of Switch Online. Would make sense from a business standpoint, too: Give people that had a one year subscription and were dissapointed with it a "new" reason to continue their subscription.

    Well, with this stuff and splatoon/fornite thingy, they are doing their best to cattle both old farts and millenials into the online milking farm.

    You nailed it, why would they do that ? They always made big bucks on accessories. Nintendo is the sheer essence of planned obsolescence.

    And f*** my SX ?
    Hohoho, hell no.

    I've been waiting for legal GC emulation since the dawn of time.
    Now I don't expect anything from Nintendo and will enjoy Metroid Prime on GPDWin or SmachZ.

    Nintendo sucked dry the nostalgia marrow of too many people, time to move on.

    Almost a year since online launched for switch. They don’t have to try any harder until subscription renewals drop.

    You DO realize emulation through emulators IS legal...right?
    Just because it is sold in a box from nintendo, does not mean it is more legal than things like dolphin.

    Out of all the games in Nintendo’s back catalogue I can’t help but feel their scraping the bottom of the barrel with all these Nes releases.

    I would be interested to know how many people paying for Switch Online are actually playing these on the Switch. Looking at playtime of people on my friends list they seems to be next to no interest.
