Recommended Videos

Nintendo announced its latest batch of NES titles coming to the Nintendo Switch Online as playable titles for subscribers, and it includes Kid Icarus and StarTropics for March 2019.


Here are more details on the two:


Kid Icarus

The evil goddess Medusa has stolen the Three Sacred Treasures and imprisoned the goddess of light, Palutena, in her evil plot to control all. Play as Pit, a young angel who has been entrusted with a magical bow and arrow. Fight against hordes of enemies that swoop from above and below. Secure the Three Sacred Treasures from their evil guardians, equip them, and face Medusa in the final battle! Are you the stuff of legends? Restore peace to Angel Land, and prove your worth!



Step into the shoes of Mike Jones, a teenage star pitcher from Seattle, who has come to the tropics to visit his famous archeologist uncle, Dr. Jones. After being told that his uncle has been abducted, Mike begins a perilous quest in order to rescue him and figure out the mysterious plot behind his disappearance. Luckily for Mike, he meets helpful villagers and finds more powerful weapons as he explores numerous locations and island hops using his uncle’s submarine.


Over in Japan things are a little different as they won’t be getting StarTropics but will instead have three titles of Yie ar Kung-Fu, Kid Icarus, and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light.


Again, the Nintendo Switch Online service allows subscribers of one region to download and play from another. In this case, subscribers from the West can try out Yie ar Kung-Fu and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light.
