Nintendo has officially released which NES games will be coming to the Nintendo Switch Online service for the month of April 2019. These will become available to play on April 10th.
The first game we have is Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream was released in 1990. Punch-Out!! was initially released in 1987 as Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! but after the license to use Mike Tyson expired Nintendo replaced Mike Tyson with the fictional character, Mr. Dream in 1990.
The next game we have in Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, which was released in 1986. This game was originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2, but was deemed to difficult for the Western audience, so the West ended up with the Doki Doki Panic reskinned as a Mario game in the West for Super Mario Bros. 2. If you are interested in the history of Super Mario Bros. 2, do yourself a favor and check out The Gaming Historian’s video on it here.
The final game we get this month is Star Soldier, which was released in 1986. Star Soldier is a vertical shump in space and was developed by Hudson Soft. The game has seen numerous re-releases over the years mostly in Japan, tho. However, it was released on the Virtual Console for both the Wii & 3DS platforms in both Japan & North America.
