Nintendo Includes Another Surprise NES Game in Switch Online Update: Gradius SP

Nintendo has included another surprise game along with November's NES lineup: Gradius SP which gives you a fully-upgraded ship and skips to level five.

Metroid, Mighty Bomb Jack, and Twinbee are now available to play on Nintendo Switch as part of their online service, and joining them is another surprise: Gradius SP.

Much like October, Nintendo included a special remix of a classic game on top of the three games previously announced for November. That game, Gradius SP is a version of Gradius that gives you a fully-upgraded version of the Vic Viper ship and skips you to the fifth level of the game.

In October a version of The Legend of Zelda subtitlted: Living the life of luxury! gave players the White Sword, Magical Shield, Blue Ring, and Power Bracelet at the outset. In Japan Switch Online subscribers got access to an SP version of Mario Open Golf whose changes include allowing you to choose from every course from the start and adds Extra Course which randomizes holes from each course.

Next month’s offerings include Wario’s Woods, Ninja Gaiden, and Adventures of Lolo, with 2019’s lineup yet to be announced.
