It only took forever, but nearly two years after the launch of Nintendo Switch Online, Donkey Kong Country is officially coming to the service. Developed by legendary UK studio Rare, Donkey Kong Country was a major head-turner when it launched back in 1994. Of particular note were the gorgeous pre-rendered graphics used to give the game its stunning 3D-esque visuals. It was a major turning point for Rare and remains one of the funnest games ever released on SNES.

Beyond DKC, fans can also look forward to the releases of SNES game Natsume Championship Wrestling and The Immortal. an NES title. Here’s Nintendo’s breakdown of everything coming to Nintendo Switch Online on July 15:
