Nintendo Switch Online members can now play some new batch of retro games. These games are from the past and can be found in apps for NES, SNES, and Game Boy. You can play games like Kirby’s Star Stacker, Joy Mech Fight, Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day!, and Quest for Camelot.
What’s cool is that three of these games were not available in North America before. Also, Quest for Camelot is a game based on a 1998 Warner Bros. animated movie!
The official Nintendo of America Twitter account just posted that there are four classic games available now for members of Nintendo Switch Online!

Kirby Star Stacker
The Kirby games are very popular with Nintendo. But in North America, they never released the Super Nintendo version of Kirby’s Star Stacker, even though it’s based on a Game Boy game from 1997.
In Japan, they made a better version of the Super Famicom in 1998. By that time, Nintendo had already been selling the Nintendo 64 for more than two years, so they probably decided not to bring Kirby’s Star Stacker to North America.
It did come out on the Wii Virtual Console in Japan, but North American fans couldn’t play it. But now, Nintendo has fixed that and is letting people who subscribe to NSO try the game.
Joy Mech Fight
Joy Mech Fight is a video game that came out in Japan in 1993. It’s a fighting game where you can pick from 36 different robot characters. These robots have limbs that can move separately, kind of like in the game Vectorman.
People who subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online seem really excited about this game on social media. They’ve been waiting for it to come out for 30 years, so hopefully, it will be as good as they hope!
Quest for Camelot
Quest for Camelot is a surprise game on Nintendo Switch Online. It’s special because it’s the first game based on a license (like a movie or a show) to be on this service. Usually, the games on here are made by Nintendo or a few other companies.
But now that they’ve added Quest for Camelot, it might mean they’ll add more licensed games in the future, like Tiny Toon Adventures or X-Men. We’ll have to wait and see, but there could be some exciting games coming to Nintendo Switch Online!
