At the Nintendo Direct event last night, it was announced that the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service will now be getting Super Nintendo games added to the library of classic NES titles. From today you’ll be able to play 20 SNES classics as part of your subscription service which includes the likes of Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, F-Zero, Breath of Fire and much more.
For sporting fans, we’ll also be getting Super Soccer and Super Tennis, which is the first time both of these games have been released since they first arrived for the SNES back in the 90’s, as well as Stunt Race FX.

For those of you that might be concerned that this means the end of NES games being included in the subscription library, never fear, because Nintendo has promised that more than 40 NES games are still to arrive. For compatible games with multiplayer functions, not only will these SNES games be playable in local multiplayer, but you’ll also be able to take them online too and each of the games will have an in-game rewind feature.
Also, just as they did when the NES games were initially announced for the Nintendo Switch Online service, subscribers will be able to purchase an official Super NES wireless controller that has an RRP of £26.99/$29.99. Further details are said to be revealed in the near future.
You can check out the full list of 20 SNES games included in your Nintendo Switch Online subscription below, with further games to be added at a later date.
