Nintendo Reveals Switch Online’s January Games, The Legend Of Zelda II And Blaster Master



Nintendo’s paid online for Switch comes with NES games added to the library every month, but January is the first month that Nintendo had not already announced the games yet. Thus, today’s announcement of The Legend of Zelda II: Adventure of Link and Blaster Master are the first unrevealed NES games since the paid online launch in September.

It’s definitely an interesting choice, to the point where I wonder if Nintendo intentionally themed the two games together. Both Zelda II and Blaster Master switch between top-down and side-scrolling sections as their main gimmicks. Both are also known as fairly difficult games, so they’re not going to be a walk in the park.

Oddly, the Japanese Switch Online service is also getting Joy Mech Fight, a Japanese-only NES release starring Sukapon, which Americans might know as a Smash Bros. assist trophy. This is odd mostly because this game isn’t replaced in other regions with a different game, Japan just gets three while America gets two. Usually Nintendo also puts out surprise releases on the day the games get uploaded, though, but it has always been an edited version of an existing game on the service.

Are there any specific NES games you’re still waiting to hit the service?
