Four New Games Announced for Nintendo Switch Online – GameRant
When Nintendo Switch Online first came out, many fans wondered whether the subscription service was worth the money. While it costs a lot less than Xbox and PlayStation’s subscriptions, Nintendo Switch Online initially lacked some key features. Enter the Nintendo Change Online Expansion Pack, which gave fans access to classic titles from the N64 and Sega Genesis. Some still wonder whether Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pack is worth the price of entry , but with new games like Pokemon Snap plus Kirby 64 being added to the service, it seems Nintendo is adding more value to the product with each additition to its roster of games.
Now, Nintendo is bringing four new games to Nintendo Switch Online’s Growth Pack. All the titles included are from Sega’s Genesis/Mega Drive console and were shown off in a new trailer posted to Nintendo’s YouTube channel. The first game to be featured in the trailer will be known to anyone familiar with the first wave of memes to hit the internet. Zero Wing is a side scrolling space adventure where the player has to stop Cats, the leader of a roaming band of space pirates.
Comix Zone is an action superhero side scroller and the second title to be revealed in the new lot of games coming to Switch On the internet. Comix Zone is known for having an unique style heavily inspired by the work of Western comic book artists, and its story even features players taking on the role associated with Sketch Turner, a comic creator. Sketch finds himself in a comic of his own making and must battle mutant enemies in order to escape.
The third classic Sega Genesis title is Mega Man: The Wily Wars , a collection of the first three Mega Man titles that have notably been missing from the Nintendo Switch Online service until now. The particular package of games takes players through the original Mega Man adventures, seeing the famous robot as he fights to take on the more evil creations of Dr . Wily. As well as the first three Mega Man games, The Wily Wars also includes Wily Tower, which features a new boss to fight.
The final game being brought to Nintendo Switch Online ‘s Development Pack is Target Earth . Like Zero Wing , Target Earth also has a sci-fi theme, but rather than taking on a band of pirates, the player must face enemy Chron cyborgs who are attacking the Earth as well as bases in space. Target Earth is an action platformer that also gives gamers an interesting narrative around the history of the Chron. Target Earth, Mega Man: The Wily Wars, Comix Zone, and Zero Side are all available now from the Switch Online Enlargement Pack Sega Genesis app.
