Don't Worry, Nintendo Isn't Abandoning Switch Online's SNES And NES Libraries

Nintendo Life 24 September, 2021 - 11:00pm

People who "don't upgrade" can still look forward to new additions

Nintendo's new tier for the Switch Online service has raised some concerns about future support for the SNES and NES libraries.

Will games continue to be added to this service, or is Nintendo done with these older retro libraries for good? It seems there's no need to worry. Axios writer, Stephen Totilo, has been informed by Nintendo that more games will continue to be added to the original membership service.

"Nintendo tells me that there will still be more NES and SNES games added for people who don’t upgrade to the new tier of Nintendo Switch Online."

In other words, fan favourites like EarthBound and Super Mario RPG still have a chance of appearing on the service. The most recent additions to these libraries were Claymates, Jelly Boy, Bombuzal and an SP version of Super Mario Bros. 3.

While there's no information about the price and release date of Nintendo's new NSO tier just yet, we do know it will launch with a "collection" of Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis (Mega Drive) games - with more titles already confirmed as future releases.

Are you relieved to hear Nintendo will continue to support the SNES and NES online service? What games would you like to see added to these particular libraries? Leave your thoughts down below.

I somewhat doubt it, but.. I'm still hoping Super Mario RPG and Earthbound get added eventually (preferably in the near future).

All of Nintendo classic consoles please and thanks Nintendo Life

They abandoned both libraries months ago.

Of the games left that could reasonably be added, Super Mario RPG is at the top of my want list. Seems so strange that it (and Earthbound) are still missing.

My long shot hope is still Rockman and Forte since they aren’t afraid to release Japanese only games on the non-Japanese NSO services. Capcom didn’t include it in either Mega Man Legacy Collection, so it’d be a cool way to make the SF/SNES version of this game available to other regions.

I thought they abandoned these libraries some time ago.

Don’t worry you got 8 games to look forward over the next two years and half of them you’ve never heard of and haven’t been localized.

Beyond NES and SNES games, I could see Nintendo adding GB/GBC to the standard NSO service.

I think any other platforms beyond that (i.e. GBA) will only be added to the NSO Expansion Pack upgrade.

How about yall start with giving us some actually games.

Didn’t think they were. I swear some folks are like a puppy with separation anxiety. “Oh no it’s been a few months…they must be dead”. Do people not have backlogs? Have they beaten all the games in the service? Have some patience.

@Liam_Doolan Will standard subscribers be able to pay a cheaper upgrade fee to change packages? If not that's a REALLY dumb move on Nintendo's part because it'll cause existing members to wait till their subscription ends before upgrading.

Wait, what did they mean by abandoned? Would they have just shut down the NES and SNES service? Because, sure Nintendo adds no new worthwhile games, but I still haven't beaten A Link To The Past, so I am glad that they're at least keeping it around.

When was the last time they added an NES game anyways?

@ObeseChihuahua2 I think by abandoned they meant "don't worry, we're still planning to add more NES and SNES games to the service". In other words the N64 and Genesis games are not replacing other games they still plan to release.

That's funny - it sure feels abandoned.

@Ryu_Niiyama You're right and you should say it.

I still think Super Mario RPG is the next for the SNES

I have Nintendo Switch Online solely for the cloud saves and the very occasional online play with my nephew and even more occasional with friends.

The games that are worth to play these days I can play elsewhere.

I so hoped they would continue with the classic systems lineage, I would give my nephew for a Nintendo 64 classic!

@dustinprewitt nope every 2nd or 3rd month they add new games on nes & snes

I don’t know if this are good news. The last additions were Z Tier. Unknown games. With only a few people interested in. I’m not sure if those are worthy additions, when there a some fan favorites missing.

@talllennart they add D-list shovelware when they feel bothered to remember. There, I fixed it for you.

I kind of wish they would add a collection of games once a year and be done with it. It's a yearly subscription service not a monthly one and I feel like the unpredictable additions stress people out more tham excite them. 😆

I want to know is, WHERE IS THE GBA?

The NES app NEEDS the Gauntlet collection. I’d pay for the collection, if 4 player support isn’t removed.

All the games ever made ever! And hurry up!

@SmaggTheSmug you mean Nate the hate?

Yeah, he’s losing credibility fast lately.

I didn't think they were going to do that anyway.....?

Thank god, I was pissing my pants

@SmaggTheSmug there were also rumors about n64. Don’t remember from whom. But I had thought gb was more true than n64. Just because Nintendo.

@KiraMoonvalley All of this please.

@TKundNobody Those rumors were around for at least a year.

Test Drive 2 and Sim City, please?!, please?!!, please.....?

Yep, love this. I like having the option of choosing a nominal fee for online (and get SNES games!)

At the rate new additions have been coming, I doubt many folks would be able to tell the difference if Nintendo HAS abandoned them.

Legend of the Mystical Ninja games please.

Hold on there, you need to login to post a comment...

We go hands-on with the Marseille mClassic

What do you hope to see?

Master Chief, Waluigi, Fighters Pass 3...

We can't believe what we're seeing
