Nintendo Switch Online could be adding SNES games according to dataminers

It looks like a hefty list of SNES games could be on the way to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.

Nintendo Switch Online launched at the tail end of last year and as well as offering players cloud saves, the service grants access to a number of NES games with upgraded graphics. However, a dataminer has discovered a list of SNES titles that seem to indicate they're making their way to the service at some point in the future.

Twitter user KapuccinoHeck rifled through the code for the app and found a list of 22 SNES games, as well as code names for four emulator types, suggesting that two more will follow the SNES.

First up, let's take a peek at the list of SNES games KapuccinoHeck tweeted out:

  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Soccer
  • Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
  • Demon's Crest
  • Yoshi's Island
  • Stunt Race FX
  • Kirby's Dream Course
  • Pop'n Twinbee
  • Star Fox
  • Contra 3
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
  • Kirby's Dream Land 3
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Mario World
  • Pilotwings
  • F-ZERO
  • Star Fox 2 (lol)
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
  • Super Mario All-Stars
  • Breath of Fire 2

KappuccinoHeck teamed up with two more dataminers - Simon1844, and OatmealDomme - to discover the four emulator types.

Fans are speculating that the last two emulators could be the Game Boy or Game Boy Advance, and a possible N64 emulator.

In more concrete news, Nintendo has announced January's NES games which will see Blaster Master, and Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link join the collection of NES titles already available on the Switch's online service.
