Nintendo Switch Online service turning three in coming weeks

Nintendo’s Switch Online service will soon turn three years old. Specifically, the service was released on September 18th, 2018. It offered users access to Nintendo’s two of the oldest console games. From that time, the company has been adding SNES and NES titles to the list of games supported by the service. As of now, it has games including the Super Mario Bros. series, Zelda II, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda II, and more. Now, the addition of the Boys Titles means that the company will not be short in terms of new games.

It is worth noting that Nintendo Life’s source is not that hopeful about a possible addition of the Game Boy Advance titles to the service in the new future. However, the addition of other retro platforms is possible, as per Eurogamer. The company has not unveiled anything specific on the issue other than a “We have nothing to announce on this matter” comment to The Verge.
