On December 12th, six new games will be added to Nintendo Switch Online. Two of the most exciting being Star Fox 2 and Super Punch-Out. I fondly remember playing Star Fox as a kid. We would have two player tournament battles with the winner keeping the controller. That was until Golden Eye took over. I don’t think I ever really played Super Punch-Out. The original on NES was a must play back in the day though. Before Nintendo’s license to use Mike Tyson’s name expired. Take a look at the launch video from Nintendo.
Nintendo Switch Online – December Updates
If you don’t have a Nintendo Switch Online pass, you can get one from the Nintendo Store or Amazon for $19.99. This gives you access to all the online features of your current games, plus the NES and SNES games they have for you to play. Some are obscure title you may not have heard of, but many are Nintendo mainstays. We love playing the original Mario games. Below is a list of the six new games being added on December 12th.
• Star Fox™ 2 – This 3D rail-shooter and second installment of the Star Fox series was first designed for the Super NES, but went unreleased until it appeared on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System™: Super NES Classic Edition system in 2017. This time, Emperor Andross is on a crusade to conquer the Lylat system and the Star Fox team itself. After a long wait, Star Fox is back in action.
• Super Punch-Out!!™ – Featuring the tight gameplay and humor the series is known for, this sequel to the NES classic sees Little Mac return to the ring with the World Video Boxing Association belt once again at stake.
• Kirby Super Star™ – That awful King Dedede is at it again – he’s stolen all the food in Dream Land. It’s up to Kirby to get it back and ultimately save Popstar from being taken over. There’s never a dull moment as Kirby dashes, flies and fights!
• Breath of Fire II – Set 500 years after the original, take on the role of Ryu, the last member of the Dragon Clan. A cast of unusual and exciting companions join you in your adventures across a wondrous land full of magic and mystery.
• Crystalis – An epic story for action-RPG fans is ready to unfold. Set in a world where civilization lies in ruins, the young protagonist awakes from cryogenic sleep and the adventure begins. Collect the Sword of Wind and venture into the unknown.
• Journey to Silius – Join Jay on his run and gun mission to take down the mechanical army responsible for his father’s death. Defeat endless waves of attack robots and fulfill his father’s dream of developing a space colony in the Silius Solar System.
