    It's time for them to move on, NES games are boring as hell, we need SNES.

    Before introduction of Mario Tennis they allow demo users to play online for free, now only for user who pay for online.

    I hope they do some bigger titles like SMO, Splatoon 2, and BOTW. I know those are considered must-haves, but, they lack a demo.

    This isn't a demo though. This is the full game.

    Play the Snes game first, is the less depressing one and is not that hard.

    The English patch for the GBA 1&2 Mother not only fully translates the first game but gives you a cheat item to level up faster.

    And Mother 3 English patch is a masterpiece.

    Cute idea. The sale is more impressive than anything. I never see Nintendo games discounted.

    For sure with just first party and a handful of stuff that sold in the millions and everyone's already played, and Nintendo should stop now because they arent gonna get any more good stuff. but there are still games worth playing today. As somebody who enjoys simple arcade games as much as a big open world RPG I'm definitely biased but I cant turn down stuff like mr. gimmick and lifeforce. But yeah the SNES does have a lot more RPGs you could sink many many hours into and would be better for the online service

    And yet, people have castigated me for being "entitled" for wanting my money's worth, more than NES games would justify me paying for it.

    It's easy to fall into the trap of expecting too much when the service is $20/year. I'd like some dedicated servers, but even that might be asking a bit too much when PS+ mostly uses P2P at triple the subscription cost.

    But a few SNES games is not that unreasonable, no? Surely, we will get more than NES games that last more than ten minutes. I can't even enjoy them for more than that. RPGs on the other hand, actually feel worth my time. Is it really too much for them to add a few games that AREN'T NES?

    No, that's definitely not unreasonable. They should've started adding SNES games a while ago. And I say that despite the fact that I own a SNES and all the best cartridges already.

    I have a Super NT with an SD2SNES, but I'm mostly curious as how NERD will handle the emulation.

    Yeah, there are definitely still benefits to having the games available in a portable form factor. Nintendo made all the styles in Super Mario Maker 2 look great on Switch's screen, after all.

    At the same time, GBA already has almost all of the best SNES games too. Wouldn't mind if they started releasing GBA games on Switch VC instead of SNES.

    My only beef with GBA conversions is the inferior audio quality, some hacks restore them, but still.

    I disagree, Mario tennis (not that I hate it) is a somewhat low production value title for a company like Nintendo, it should have just been free with subscription, and it really never should have been full price in first place.

    This is great so is it limited per day or something or full blown game until a certain period. this is definitely a step towards the right direction!
