It’s been months since Nintendo updated the software offerings for its Nintendo Switch Online service. While being a subscriber is ostensibly for being able to play online games and multiplayer on Switch, Nintendo has made a big hullabaloo about the SNES and NES games that come part and parcel with the service. Following the launch of the SNES library of games, Nintendo had announced that updates to the Nintendo Switch Online games catalogue would no longer be monthly, but few expected the schedule to become nonexistent. Thankfully, the drought comes to an end December 12:

Here are the games that fans can look forward to next Thursday (along with the descriptions of each, provided by Nintendo):

  • SNES
    • Star Fox 2— This 3D rail-shooter and second installment of the Star Fox series was first designed for Super NES, but went unreleased until it appeared on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system in 2017. This time, Emperor Andross is on a crusade to conquer the Lylat system and the Star Fox team itself. After a long wait, Star Fox is back in action.
    • Super Punch-Out!!— Featuring the tight gameplay and humor the series is known for, this sequel to the NES classic sees Little Mac return to the ring with the World Video Boxing Association belt once again at stake.
    • Breath of Fire II— Set 500 years after the original, take on the role of Ryu, the last member of the Dragon Clan. A cast of unusual and exciting companions join you in your adventures across a wondrous land full of magic and mystery.
    • Kirby Super Star— That awful King Dedede is at it again – he’s stolen all the food in Dream Land. It’s up to Kirby to get it back and ultimately save Popstar from being taken over. There’s never a dull moment as Kirby dashes, flies and fights!
  • NES
    • Journey to Silius— Join Jay on his run-and-gun mission to take down the mechanical army responsible for his father’s death. Defeat endless waves of attack robots and fulfill his father’s dream of developing a space colony in the Silius Solar System.
    • Crystalis— An epic story for action-RPG fans is ready to unfold. Set in a world where civilization lies in ruins, the young protagonist awakes from cryogenic sleep and the adventure begins. Collect the Sword of Wind and venture into the unknown.

Will this get you to fire up the Nintendo Switch Online app once more? Which of these games stands out most to you? Tell us in the comments or sound off on social media!
