Apparently a dataminer discovered information buried in the latest Switch update which suggests that SNES online games are closer than we think.

Also, another person found something to suggest that there may be two more Nintendo Classic consoles on the way. N64 and GB?

according to a dataminer who has sifted through NES Online strings - apparently added in last month's Switch update, there's now evidence Super Nintendo games are planned for the service in the future.
another dataminer who goes by the Twitter handle @OatmealDome - and is known for their findings in Splatoon 2 - claims to have discovered the following information (see below), suggesting there will be two to three more emulators added to the Switch online service at a later date.

So frustrating. For me, the NES selection of games are barely playable - I wouldn’t pay for these anymore. It feels like they are ringing every singly penny out of their consumers with this policy.

SNES seems inevitable. It was announced as part of the initial service if I recall, then quietly dialled back to just being NES for whatever reason. Hopefully N64 will come sooner rather than later as well, though I'm not holding my breath. I doubt they'll do Gamecube, as that console is probably the earliest viable candidate for HD remasters. Otherwise, the list of SNES games looks fine, but needs more Mario RPG.

Pop'n Twinbee?

Kinda suprised to see that game on that list, still a good game.

Let's see, interested mostly in Super Metroid, Super Mario World, Twinbee, Demon's Crest, Yoshi's Island, Kirby's games, Mario All-Stars, Super Punch-Out and F-Zero.

The rest i don't care about or have already played and aren't the kind of games i want to replay again when i still have a backlog of games.

Sorry...i just never got into the original Super Mario Kart, i HATE the top-down sections of Contra III(they are not fun and for some reason make me dizzy, God, how i wish Konami had just done simple platformer levels for the entire game) and the Star Fox games are...well, this is really shallow of me, but they look awful, i simply hate the graphics and style of the games.

But hey, still some cool games on the list, and hopefully other games will come out for the service, wouldn't mind seeing Axelay, Chrono Trigger, Pocky & Rocky, Terranigma and quite a few others on the service.

I kinda wished that they added in EarthBound, as I was willing to give a try. Heard that it was a great game back from the SNES games.

And of course, still no GameCube titles ? C’mon Ninty, give me Pikmin and Super Mario Sunshine and we’ll be good.

EarthBound is guaranteed to be added sometime down the line. It's a pretty good seller on the Wii U and 3DS virtual console. I can't imagine them not continuing to offer it in their retro games catalog.

They will release them separately for $60... I fear that is obvious... ;).

It only makes sense for Nintendo to do this. They have such a large catalog of classic games that can be put on this style of service that would be instant success. Imagine using your switch to play classics from n64 or even GameCube for that matter — huge win.

Hoping the N64 Classic thing is true as it is the one Console I have not owned that I would love trying out. :)

Not bothered if this is just for the Switch Online Service either...just means I will buy an Online Sub much later.

Good.

It’s pathetic that they’re not already included. I bow to no man in my love of Nintendo, but getting bored of their online service VC bullshit.

It’s not incompetence, they’re just tight bastards.
So $19.99 a year for 29 NES games that were priced at around $4.99 each,and they are adding more titles every month,seems reasonable. ;)

Or the age of entitlement gone mad.

Super Mario Allstars? Already superior to the SNES Classic Mini!

But for real: Give me Metal Marines and Sanrio World Smash Ball, please!
Lastly, get Square to work on an official translation of Seiken Densetsu 3!

I'm really hoping that some import games come to the switch, but I doubt it will happen. Snes had some of the best import games.

Terrganigma
Firemen
rockman and forte
yu yu hakusho
dragon ball z hyper dimension
gundam wing endless duel
star ocen

The NeS games for switch are still lacking
No Dragon warrior games
no final fantasy
no adventure island games
Metal storm
Little Samson
Felix the cat
tiny toons
Mario 2, why is it not here?
Contra
no megaman games
battle toads
kirby

it would be nice if they dropped a ton of them this month we are only getting 2 nes games as if the drip feed wasn't bad enough. if they keep drip feeding I for sure won't resubscribe the switch online is pretty awful when it comes to net play.

Nintendo needs to drop a ton of games. This drip feed is too slow. And these aren't games that you spend months with anymore, most can be completed in a few sittings at most. People will burn through the 2 or 3 games they release.

I am not saying put the whole catalogue up there but I think something like 10 games a month (between NES/SNES and maybe GBA) is a lot more resonable than 2 games.

Stunt race fx bitches

One of the best early polygonal racing games ever

I pray the emulation is 1 : 1 but the Smb3 emulation on switch has me very weary. That game runs like total shit

Lots of graphical gifches that weren’t in the nes and on better emulators. Go to 1-4. It looks awful
Sorry, Switch and NES Classics (is it worse than on the NES Classics and on Wii Virtual Console?) do not normally get the rep Sony’s PlayStation classic so I did not think a big gun like SMB3 had big emulation issues.

The only hypothetical Switch feature I'm ready to be excited about at this point would be custom user folders + the ability to arrange games how you want within them.
Took Sony 3 years. In Nintendo time, you're talking 9.

Stunt Race FX fans unite!

Show off.

It took Nintendo just over a year to introduce folders for 3DS. So, you are being a bit dramatic there.

In saying that, I’ll never understand why this isn’t an option at launch from all console manufacturers. I mean really, how bloody hard can it be to implement?

They dole it out like a dealer to crack addicts. Just enough, but not too much. Gotta keep ‘em alive and coming back.

Different publishers. Squaresoft published BoF 1. I assume that is why.
I know that. But I also thought that was only for the SNES cart and all rights had reverted back to Capcom since. I mean, BoF1 is on all the VCs and everything already.

OMG THERE HAS NEVER BEEN ANY OTHER WAY TO PLAY THESE GAMES ANYWHERE ELSE OMG.

This was a novel feature 10 years ago when they did it on the Wii. Not anymore.
