Nintendo Switch Online Adding Five New Titles Including Donkey Kong Country 3
Are you Tuff E Nuff?
It’s been a couple of months now since our last Nintendo Switch Online additions. Back in September the likes of Mario’s Super Picross and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest were added to the service, but nothing since then. That’s all about to change, however, as Nintendo has announced another five new games across both the NES and Super NES that will be dropping on December 18.
As with the last round of additions, only one NES title will be joining the service. That game is Nightshade. Nightshade was released in 1992 and only ever came out in North America. It is a point and click adventure game with some more action-heavy elements. The game was developed by Beam Software, the developers who created the cult classic Super NES title Shadowrun.

Joining Nightshade are a total of four different Super NES titles. Without doubt, the most high profile of those four is Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble. The game is a follow up to Donkey Kong Country 2 and sees players take control of Dixie Kong and, everybody’s favourite member of the Kong family, Kiddy Kong to complete a variety of platforming levels.
Alongside Donkey Kong Country 3 are three slightly lesser know Super NES titles. The first is The Ignition Factor, or Fire Fighting as it was known in Japan. The game sees players assume the role of a firefighter, tackling blazes in a range of real-world situations. Second up is SUPER VALIS IV, a great looking side-scrolling platformer/hack n slash game which has a range of cool enemies to tackle. The final new addition is Tuff E Nuff, a fighting game with a large roster of characters and some absolutely incredible box art.
The five games join the Nintendo Switch Online service this Friday, December 18.
