As part of Nintendo’s online service – Nintendo Switch Online – subscribers are able to play a handful of classic NES and SNES titles. Periodically, Nintendo will refresh its offerings, adding more games to the service. Four new titles will be joining the service on the 17th of February, bringing the total number of games close to 100.
The four titles being added on the 17th of February are:
- Psycho Dream (SNES)
- Doomsday Warrior (SNES)
- Prehistorik Man (SNES)
- Fire ’n Ice (NES)
The synopsis for Psycho Dream is as follows: “When Sayaka doesn’t return to reality after entering an immersive virtual world known as a D-Movie, the protagonists, Ryo and Maria, must progress through a terrifying fantasy game called Legend of the Fallen Capital to rescue her and bring her back to reality.”
Doomsday Warrior is a fighting game which “features an evil sorcerer who has recruited seven warriors to take over Earth. But one of the Doom Squad has resisted the influence and now stands against the rest as the Doomsday Warrior!”
Prehistorik Man is a platformer which sees you play as Sam the caveman, who “lives in a village whose food is stolen by dinosaurs. To get more, Sam must collect bones, which he can then use to buy food. On his way, he’ll need to make use of a variety of weapons, vehicles and attacks, including shouting, to attack all on-screen foes.”
The last title being added is Fire ‘n Ice. also known as Solomon’s Key 2, Fire ‘n Ice is a puzzle game which tasks you with “[defending] your home, Coolmint Island, from the wicked wizard Druidle and his flames!” using ice magic.
While none of these titles are necessarily considered classics, it is good to see Nintendo continuing to flesh out its list of included games as part of its NSO service. Hopefully the console manufacturer will choose to add more consoles to the service sooner rather than later.
