Nintendo promised NES games for Nintendo Switch and classics are already available since the service rolled out in September last year. The service released with a handful of NES titles as part of the subscription package.
More games are added every month and while what future titles we will see on Nintendo Switch isn’t confirmed, a data miner managed to extract a list of Super Nintendo games that are coming to Nintendo Switch soon.
There are 22 games in total including Demon’s Crest, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Star Fox 1,2, Super Mario World, and more.
- Super Mario Kart
- Super Soccer
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Demon’s Crest
- Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
- Stunt Race FX
- Kirby’s Dream Course
- Pop’n Twinbee
- Star Fox
- Contra III: The Alien Wars
- Kirby Super Star
- Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
- Kirby’s Dream Land 3
- Super Metroid
- Super Mario World
- Star Fox 2
- Super Punch-Out!!
- The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
- Super Mario All-Stars
- Breath of Fire II
This is an unconfirmed list so it with a grain of salt for sure. There are so many other titles available to play and are going to be added later on to the Nintendo Switch NES Games library.
Nintendo is expanding not only its classics, first-party but also its third-party offerings. The company is currently in talks with many big publishers including Ubisoft, Blizzard, EA, and other to bring some of their most popular games to Switch. In fact, EA is working on supporting Nintendo Switch with its powerful Frostbite engine.
This leaves the door open for games like Battlefield, Medal of Honor, and others to release on Nintendo Switch. However, due to the lack of hardware power, the Switch would need its own tailor-made versions of such IPs.
