    With every new month comes a new pair of NES titles to be added for subscribers to the Nintendo Switch Online service. Now that we're already partway into July, Nintendo has lifted the curtain on what games they'll be adding this time around. On July 17th, Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew will become part of the selection of now over 40 NES games that you can play on the Nintendo Switch. It seems like Nintendo is still focusing on their original classic titles, despite fans anxiously awaiting a possible tease of Super Nintendo games, one day.

    If Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew aren't your cup of tea, there will be an extra little bonus feature added to Switch Online NES games, that same day: a rewind function. By pressing ZL or ZR, you'll be able to rewind your progress, in order to correct your mistakes. This is a common feature seen in both emulators and on other reproduction hardware, so it'll be a nice addition for those that play the offered NES titles.

    Why not putting a true rewind feature like we have seen since NESDS? I mean, even Megaman Legacy has that from ages ago lol Anyway, I don't play too often these games, I hope others enjoy them more with this feature.

    W...wow! A rewind feature? Like with every other NES/SNES/Genesis (IDK about this one, don't see why it couldn't work though) emulator on a sufficiently powerful enough device!?

    THIS IS AMAZING!!!

    I came here to bitch about the games like every month, but they suck so hard that I pity them and just do nothing.

    Who decides these games? I bet if they took a poll these would be on the bottom of the list.

    Nobody is paying for these. It's included with the online subscription.

    I guess this makes sense.
    Nintendo is finally but slowly catching up to emulation trends and standards.

    Even if it's not Cutting edge new emu features, it's still nice to see nintendo add features, instead of just making it, and just dropping games, like with VC.

    Never used Rewind Time before, should be fun.

    I mean, they're ripping it off from their own emulator too? Didn't the SNES Mini have this as a feature? I'm more surprised it wasn't added sooner lol.

    It's a real shame about all of this though, all they need to do is start dipping into their SNES library and fans will be drooling over it. Nintendo are silly.

    I think nintendo fuck it anyway, even if they throw some SNES and N64 this "online" still will be use none of proper servers and holds only via p2p connection.

    Hey, yea, more old garbage. I bought the controllers too. Every time I go to play one of these games, the batteries are dead. Please put USB-c on SNES if you greedy shits decide to give us such advanced, late-stage scraps.
