Today, Nintendo released a new update for the NES Switch Online that added 4 new games, including 2 special versions of NES games that have already released. Dataminers have been looking in the files for any changes, and they have discovered that all the SNES game strings have been removed. It is unknown why this was done, but some are speculating that Nintendo is preparing a separate SNES app for the games, or they just simply backed off with adding the games for now. If SNES games on Switch Online are a thing, then we might hear something in today’s Nintendo Direct. In the meantime, some tweets relaying the news can be seen down below.
Also, all references to "Canoe", "Hiyoko" and "Count" have been removed from the executable file.
