The Nintendo Online Switch library continues to grow, with two new NES titles joining the service on March 13 — Kid Icarus and StarTropics.

Kid Icarus 

The evil goddess Medusa has stolen the Three Sacred Treasures and imprisoned the goddess of light, Palutena, in her evil plot to control all. Play as Pit, a young angel who has been entrusted with a magical bow and arrow. Fight against hordes of enemies that swoop from above and below. Secure the Three Sacred Treasures from their evil guardians, equip them and face Medusa in the final battle.


Step into the shoes of Mike Jones, a teenage star pitcher from Seattle, who has come to the tropics to visit his famous archaeologist uncle, Dr. Jones. After being told that his uncle has been abducted, Mike begins a perilous quest in order to  rescue him and figure out the mysterious plot behind his  disappearance. Luckily for Mike, he meets helpful villagers and finds more powerful weapons as he explores numerous locations and island hops using his uncle’s submarine.

The NES library now includes over 30 titles, including some real classics like Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda, and is available to anyone who has an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The games can be accessed by downloading the app from the eShop.
