    Nintendo's Japanese website has stated that SNES and NES games will be added to the service in an irregular manner rather than a monthly one. That means we could see much more than 2 or 3 games a month. It also means we could see much less. It is unknown what spurred Nintendo to go this route, but it is speculated that it is in response to the drip-feed of NES games. Whether it is a positive or negative response remains to be seen. What do you think? Is Nintendo about to release games at an abysmal rate, or will we see a dramatic increase??

    Noticing, aloof from it all
    Maybe it's done as a way to make sure no one misunderstands that these releases are the "free games every month" thing PS+ does.
    I'm not sure about the frequency of releasing, we'll have to see. One other idea I have in mind is that Nintendo is just applying their unpredictability strategy to these releases to make it more exciting.

    Bad news. My guess is that there is trouble securing third party licenses.

    So, in short, "we're releasing new titles whenever we feel like it"
    Only time will tell what that means for the consumers. But at the very least, it'll come as a surprise every time they release more NES/SNES games, so that's cool I guess.

    Not surprised in the least but at the end of the day, I'm cool with whatever is released. It's just SNES games on Switch and nothing to go crazy over at this point.

    Adding games on random days not a good idea as obviously some gamers may not notice what has been released-weekly best option on a certain day 2 a week is what is ideal

    Call me optimistic, but I'm hoping it means more releases instead of less, to catch up to their previous VC title numbers, as well as add new ones.

    I think it'll average out to a similar release rate, but some months we might get zero where others we might get six or something like that. In any case I'm glad they gave us so many great games at launch.

    This could very well the platform for Square-Enix to translate/port their RPG Backlog to the west.
    Maybe even Mother 3 if Nintendo ever decides to bring the GBA and Mother to the switch.

    They don't want to blow their load all at once. Probably intending to stagger them all out over at least the course of a year.

    Your mom's basement.
    They're probably doing this cause their Youtube videos kept being downvoted.

    News of the future:

    We are now 'delisting' the following games......

    it will not be long before older titles that been out for year or more, start to get removed.

    No one would care as most gamers backlogs are longer than Pinocchios nose
