Last year, people were crazy about Nintendo's NES and SNES Classic consoles, but it looks like the games that these nostalgia machines will soon be available directly on your switch , Data miners claim to have discovered a list of 22 SNES titles and possibly two mystery emulators in the code for Nintendo Switch Online.
The launch of Switch's online service has been received with overwhelming disappointment. Although Nintendo's subscription service is relatively cheap for only $ 20, the switch is not really filled with many online multiplayer games, and players have performance issues with blockbusters such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate . The bonus offer of Old School NES games was not enough to make people feel they got enough. This could change soon.
Data miner and modding enthusiast KapuccinoHeck tweeted on the weekend that they had recently reviewed the online service's code and found a list of 22 SNES games. KapuccinoHeck tweeted the actual file for anyone interested. Other users confirmed the existence of the list and indicated that the games contain descriptions in English and Japanese, further fueling the speculation that they might arrive immediately. Here is the full list of titles:
- Super Mario Kart
- Super Soccer
- The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
- Demon's Crest
- Yoshi's Island  Stunt Race FX
- Kirby's Dream Course
- Pop'n Twinbee
- Star Fox
- Contra 3
- Kirby Super Star
- Super Ghouls and Ghosts
- Kirby's Dream Land 3
- Super Mario World
- Pilot Wing
- Star Fox 2 (lol)
- Super Punch-Out !!
- The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
- Super Mario All-Stars
- Breath Fire 2
The list of games is very close to the SNES Classic, which is available for $ 79.99. Even more exciting, however, is that the Twitter user OatmealDome [19459027havesomescratchingandareoffourtypesofmulitulersHoweveritisnotclearwhatthecodenamesarefortheemulators:
- Kachikachi (NES Classic)
- Canoe (SNES Classic)
- Hiyoko (?? ?)
- Count (???)
Can we get N64 or GameBoy emulators? Could be. One person pointed out that the "Count" category of emulators might just be a string that should record the number of emulators in existence, and that there may only be one extra emulator.
Nintendo did not immediately respond to Gizmodo's request for confirmation, but the data miners have had some great success in the discovery. KapuccinoHeck found out how to hack the online NES library the day after it was released. OatmealDome helped with this and made regular discoveries in the code for Splatoon 2 .
Yes, Nintendo tends to be too stingy in its older games, but it's not unreasonable to think that there would be something to think about there The incoming tide of titles while the company strives to anger users and subscription services calming down is becoming increasingly important to technology giants. The competition for game subscriptions and streaming dollars is getting tougher. Sony, Microsoft, Amazon, Electronic Arts, Google, Nvidia, and Verizon are reportedly working on a kind of game service. Just last week, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa told Nikkei that Nintendo's long-term focus on the consoles could shift away from home. Ningendo's thinking is the key to Nintendo's future.
