If you’re a subscriber to Nintendo Switch Online, it’s a good assumption that just NES games aren’t quite what you’re looking for. For players, they may be in luck, as for months, there have been rumours that Nintendo was eventually going to add more consoles to the service, but nothing has ever appeared. Now we have first confirmation that they are considering doing that.
The news comes from Nintendo’s recent investor Q&A, and when one question asked about expanding the online service, as well as asking about the Gamecube and the N64 and Kirby, Nintendo actually had a reply.
Nintendo’s official response, without commenting on the specifics, is that it is looking into expanding the NES games. It did not specifically say this is to other systems, but it probably isn’t looking to expand to more NES games. Dataminers found references to SNES games in the NES games app on Switch months ago, but Nintendo has yet to announce anything.
With rumours of new the new Switch hardware on its way, Nintendo could be looking to relaunch the online service around the same time.
