Nintendo Switch Online is Adding Four New NES and SNES Titles Next Week
Rygar, Operation Logic Bomb, Panel de Pon, and Wild Guns will all join the Nintendo Switch Online classic games collection very soon.
Since it was introduced with Nintendo Switch Online, the collection of classic NES and SNES games on the service has steadily grown with new titles. While updates for the service have been infrequent, several iconic games are available on both collections, with four new titles set to join the collection starting next week.
Nintendo has officially announced that four new titles are being added this month to the NES and SNES libraries for Nintendo Switch subscribers. On May 20, the NES library will add Rygar, while the SNES collection will grow with Operation Logic Bomb, Panel de Pon, and Wild Guns.

One of the most notable titles on the new additions to the Switch Online library next month is Panel de Pon, which initially only released in Japan but was later brought over to the USA and other regions as Tetris Attack. This marks the first time that the title (in its original form) will be available to a US audience, which should make for an interesting experience. This is especially for anyone that has ever played a Puzzle League game, as Panel de Pon kickstarted the series that would later lead to other titles such as Pokemon Puzzle League, along with versions inspired by Nintendo franchises such as Dr. Mario and Animal Crossing.
As Nintendo noted, so far the Switch Online library of classic games is now at over 80 games since the service was first launched. Initially, the collection had just started with NES games but grew to incorporate SNES games last year, including several of the system’s all-time classics like Super Metroid, Super Mario World, and many more.
