    Those that have access to Nintendo Switch Online are likely familiar with the included NES titles with the subscription. Though Nintendo adds a handful of new games to the lineup each month (Zelda 2 and Blaster Master are Jan. 2019's new additions) many fans have been clamoring for Super Nintendo games to also be added. While nothing has been officially stated at this time, it seems a datamine might have let the cat out of the bag a little early, as Twitter user KapuccinoHeck has discovered a list of 22 SNES games within the data for the NES Online app, which were reportedly added in the last Switch software update. The 22 titles are as follows:

    • Super Mario Kart
    • Super Soccer
    • Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
    • Demon's Crest
    • Yoshi's Island
    • Stunt Race FX
    • Kirby's Dream Course
    • Pop'n Twinbee
    • Star Fox
    • Contra 3
    • Kirby Super Star
    • Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
    • Kirby's Dreamland 3
    • Super Metroid
    • Super Mario World
    • Pilotwings
    • F-Zero
    • Star Fox 2
    • Super Punch Out!
    • The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
    • Super Mario All Stars
    • Breath of Fire 2
    This list manages to differ from what the SNES Classic offers, with Final Fantasy VI, Super Mario RPG, Castlevania IV, Donkey Kong Country, Mega Man X, Earthbound, and Secret of Mana missing from what would supposedly be given through the Nintendo Switch Online service. However, these titles could be planned for future monthly updates rather than being rolled out all at once. Presumably, since the NES games have extra features, such as online play and save states, these would be carried over to the SNES games as well. At the time of writing, though, nothing is concrete, and the list is merely a datamine with unconfirmed information.

    The issue with the ‘missing’ games is that they’re third party, Nintendo will likely prioritise any games they own the rights to, or can get relatively cheap, first.

    Frankly, I think it’s bad they don’t have at a minimum all of their first party games up to maybe the N64 era (subject to emulation quality) on the service.

    Anyone with a stock switch, subscribes online and/or doesn’t want to pirate?

    I still don't understand how they can mess up the nes online. How is it not possible to just copy and paste the 30 nes games you had on the nes classic before adding new ones? I don't know why, but I felt that should have been simple.

    I can only think they selected the different titles to promote the online play aspect of the feature. It's probably why they had all those sports games like tennis, soccer, Ice hockey, Baseball, Wrestling... :blink:

    Again, I don't know the truth but I just can't help but feel disappointed. The exceptions was not met and there has not been any response about it.

    Somewhere, over there!
    Once again, nothing of value contributed. "Muh emulators"... That's cool, run along now. This is of value to us legitimate users. Not that you'd understand, considering you keep trying to justify your petty actions.

    So Nintendo lied saying star fox 2 was a snes mini exclusive. They can get sued for deceptive marketing then.

    Ugh a fanboy ofcourse with the typical response. I have better things to do then to look past millions of pages containing snes classic in it.

    I don't think you know how false advertising works.

    I know how it works and i have seen plenty sued for the exact same thing. If the main selling point of the SNES classic was starfox 2 and was told to be an SNES Classic exclusive then that is false advertising.

    Whether Star Fox 2 was or wasn't advertised as a SNES Mini exclusive doesn't matter. If it was, then it wouldn't be false advertising, as it WAS (and still is) a SNES Mini exclusive. You can claim it was misleading, but it's been almost two years. It's not coming out the week later.

    It still is in my eyes especially if it now comes out on the switch and the SNES classic still being sold. It wouldn't be if the SNES classic wouldn't be sold anymore but it does
