Punch-Out!!, Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels, and Star Soldier Join Nintendo Switch Online NES Lineup in April
Three NES classics will be joining Nintendo Switch Online next week on April 10.
Nintendo has announced the latest additions to the NES lineup for those who are subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online and it’s not too shabby of a month.
Three new titles in total will be joining the service next week on April 10 and likely the biggest name of the trio is that of Punch-Out!!. The classic boxing game that features the iconic Little Mac first released in arcades before making its way to the NES down the road.
Next up is Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, which has an interesting history of its own. Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels is known as Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan, but the game never released in stateside until much later on as The Lost Levels. Meanwhile, the Super Mario Bros. 2 that we’re familiar with in the west is actually just a repurposed version of Doki Doki Panic.
Lastly this month, Star Soldier is the final title joining the NES lineup. Star Solider is a shoot ’em up that wad developer by Hudson and originally released on the NES back in 1986. It’s likely the most unknown quantity of this slate of new NES titles, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun in its own right.
Below, you can get a look at all three games in a trailer released by Nintendo. If you’re not already a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber, it costs $19.99 for an entire year of the service to join. Alternatively, if you’re a Twitch Prime member, you can now get a free year of the service yourself.
