Nintendo has announced the latest NES games coming to Nintendo Switch Online on April 10, and it’s a strong offering.

In its press release, Nintendo describes them as a “star of the Mushroom Kingdom, a star of the boxing ring and a star of, well, the stars themselves!”:

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels  – Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2, this game has previously made only brief cameo appearances in the Western Hemisphere. Mario fans will appreciate the familiar look and feel of the game, while finding that its updated gameplay creates an entirely new challenge. In addition to the classic enemies already known to fans worldwide, there are also Poison Mushrooms, backward Warp Zones and the occasional wind gust (which can help or  hinder your progress).

Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream – As young boxer Little Mac, players  have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to battle the big guys of  the World Video Boxing Association circuit. Take them on one by one, starting with skinny Glass Joe. Battle up through King Hippo and all the way to the WVBA Champion himself. Players use their best jabs, hooks and power uppercuts to knock out opponents, but must also dodge jaw-breaking blows by paying attention to subtle changes in their foe’s body position.

Star Soldier – The standard for vertically scrolling shooters, Star  Soldier is the original game that spawned all of the  titles in the long-running Soldier series. Go inside a floating space station inhabited by a giant  computer known as Starbrain. Your mission: to stop  Starbrain’s galactic invasion by piloting Caesar, a new  compact space fighter, through 16 deadly stages.

Coincidentally, the ‘star’ theme actually continues on from last month’s releases where we got Kid Icarus and StarTropics.

These latest titles will be available from April 10 and Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can play them and over 30 other NES titles through the app in the eShop.
