Nintendo Switch Online members may be in for a treat this week – Nintendo plans to add more NES and SNES titles to its library! The NinStatusBot Twitter account – a profile that tracks Nintendo’s planned maintenance windows – states that both the NES and SNES apps will go down for maintenance on Friday morning. This is likely in preparation for new games being added to the service. Stay tuned for more information!
Nintendo’s NES and SNES online libraries have been growing steadily since the service launched in September 2018. It currently has over 50 NES titles and over 20 SNES titles available to play. Nintendo has also added other features to the service, such as cloud saves and exclusive Nintendo Switch Online-themed items for certain games. With Nintendo’s plans to add more titles to its NES and SNES libraries on Nintendo Switch Online, it’s clear that the company is committed to making its online service worth the price of admission.

The NES library, hadn’t received a new title since May 2021, when action game Ninja JaJaMaru-kun was added to the collection.
Nintendo has yet to announce any specific titles that will be added to the Nintendo Switch Online library. However, given the recent addition of Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania to the service, it’s possible that we could see more games from these franchises added in the future. Nintendo fans will just have to wait and see what Nintendo has in store for Nintendo Switch Online!
