If you’ve been eyeing off the SNES Classic, especially now that you can get your hands on one without a Thunderdome-style battle in the middle of JB Hi-Fi, you might want to hold off a tiny bit longer – it looks an awful like they’re coming to Switch Online.
Super Mario Kart
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
Stunt Race FX
Kirby’s Dream Course
Kirby Super Star
Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
Kirby’s Dream Land 3
Super Mario World
Star Fox 2
The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
Super Mario All-Stars
Breath of Fire 2
If that list looks familiar, it’s because a lot of those titles are among the ones included with the SNES Classic.
I was finally able to look around NES Online's strings a bit myself and noticed the sheer amount of SNES games planned.
Here's a list for you folks out there:#NintendoSwitch

Obviously nothing’s official or announced yet – but Nintendo is clearly setting the stage for more games (and console emulator functionality) on the Online platform.
So if you’ve got a Switch but you’ve been umming and aahhh-ing over the mini SNES, thinking longingly of diving back into The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past in all its pixelly glory, it might be worth holding onto your dollars a little longer. Just to see what happens.
