When Nintendo first announced their upcoming online service for the Nintendo Switch they also announced that this subscription would come with the added benefit of a library of classic NES games that can be played anyhwere, anytime. Including online.
This is similar to Sony's PlayStation Plus and Microsoft's Games with Gold, apart from the fact that Nintendo's service will offer access to classic games instead of current generation ones.
In a recent Nintendo Direct the company revealed the list of launch titles that will be available when Nintendo Switch Online launches next week.
This includes franchise spawning titles like the original Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong and Yoshi to name a few. The list also includes some other classic games that provided people with countelss hours of entertainment such as Baseball, Excitebike and Ice Climber.
You can check out the full list of launch titles on Nintendo's webpage.
