    A new month has begun, and that means it’s time to see which classic NES games will be added to the collection of available titles through Nintendo Switch Online. This May will see the addition of three games: Vs. Excitebike, Clu Clu Land, and Donkey Kong JR. Currently, they’re listed as “upcoming” on the official Nintendo website, where subscribers to Nintendo Switch Online will be able to access these games fairly soon, once the reveal video goes live.

    Gotta admit, SX OS Emunand is almost making purchase it because of this thing.

    If they put Contra, Battle City, Binary Land, Milk and Nuts and a couple more of those that made me wake up at 6am to play a bit before going to school at 8am...

    I might buy it. Or go legit, once I find Hello Kitty and Lego Worlds for cheap.

    A little intresting that there starting to include arcade games now. With the acception of a port to the Famicom over in the west at least it was an arcade title only.

    Yes definitely. I remember playing some for so long during "rainy days" (Rainy in Animal Crossing, not IRL) that when I quit out of the game and Gamecube graphics take over I was like "Oh yeah I'm playing Animal Crossing." OK, not that I was actually forgetting, but the graphics shock was still real.

    I played the crap out of Wild World, but was still sad no NES games.

    I hacked the crap out of New Leaf, but had gave up hope by this point NES games would ever be thing any more.

    Is there any of the more modern versions of
    Excitebike any good? I am fond of Nes games that let you create your own levels.

    Because we don't get FDS games in America. Nintendo wants to give us options.

    You think I actually like these NES games? No way in hell do I enjoy them, couldn't care less, nor do I even want to pay 5 dollars a month for this crap.
