Video: Nintendo Switch Online NES August 2019 update trailer

Nintendo is really scrapping the bottom of the NES barrel now. Nintendo Switch Online is just a month away from turning a year old, and the company has confirmed a couple of more obscure NES titles that will be available for Nintendo Switch Online players. Starting August 21st, you will be able to play Kung-Fu Heroes and Vice: Project Doom. Nintendo’s tweet, including the trailer, is down below.

      I believe it will happen

    1. Just watched the trailer, and… what even is Kung-Fu Heroes supposed to be? It looks like a poor-man’s version of Mysterious Murasame Castle. And that tune in the first screen of it… I’ve heard that somewhere before, but where?

      *thinks of the new Overwatch Hero Sigma* “…what is that melody…? WHAT IS THAT MELODYYYYYY!!?!??”

        Starts the song I’m already Tracer.

  1. If they don’t announce the SNES games next month on the anniversary then who knows when they’ll show up. I guess I’ll check these out for 5 minutes and then never play them ever again

  2. Nintendo still selling NES games that majority of Nintendo console owners have already paid for it once? sometimes twice?

    that’s some shitty business practices.

    I’m going to guess the eShop for Switch is non existent outside of NES games, if that’s the case then that’s just sad..

    1. That would be a good response to literally every NES update but this one, given this is the first kinda obscure set. (Meaning nobody bought it before)

    2. “majority of Nintendo console owners have already paid for it once? sometimes twice?”

      Honestly that’s pretty unlikely at this stage of the market. Almost nobody bought a Wii U, and the original Wii hasn’t been super popular in around 10 years. This means in order for your statement to be true, there would need to be more classic Nintendo gamers owning Wiis than young kids and casuals who never bought anything on the Wii VC combined.

      1. It’s not unlikely for the time period when it was happening due to there being multiple consoles with eShops reach. I know i’m not the only person who’s paid for Super Mario Bros 3 more than once just to enjoy it on another console. 3ds also has access to some of those titles. To simply say that it hasn’t happened is absurd.

      2. ” i’m not the only person who’s paid for Super Mario Bros 3 more than once just to enjoy it on another console. 3ds also has access to some of those titles. To simply say that it hasn’t happened is absurd.”

        Good thing that’s not at all what I said. You claimed that this was the “majority”. I pointed out that it is unlikely that its the majority, so now you’re pretending that wasn’t what the conversation was about.

      3. Nah, you’re just kinda being a dick. I believe that majority of people who owned a nintendo console/handheld probably did at some point purchase titles from eshop that have been purchased again on others. You’re making a mountain of a molehill…

        sure it may not happen on such a scale as it did before because no one really uses those consoles anymore, there you got me.

      4. “Nah, you’re just kinda being a dick. ”

        So, here’s the order of events.

        You make a claim.

        I disagree, giving my reason for disagreeing.

        You lie about what I said.

        I point out you lied about what I said.

        You call me a dick for pointing out that you lied.

        Then you just declare me wrong without giving any reasoning whatsoever.

        You’re right Skelly. I’m such a dick. I apologize. Clearly I was way out of line.

    3. First of all, the NES games are a free bonus to subscribing to Nintendo’s online service. They aren’t selling them again.
      And the only NES games on the eShop are the cabinet versions of the games.
      And you’d better check out that eShop, it’s very, VERY, full of great games.

      1. It’s swarming with titles of the kind you’d call VC (a plethora of neo geo games, sega ages, a megadrive collection, namco collections, atari collections, megamans, psikyo cabinets, some dreamcast ports etc etc) but none of that is first party.
        So we’re still waiting for SNES, GB(C)/A, N64 and Cube – hoping that ever happens.

  3. Why are they doing this… the only “good” NES games are just the classics everyone remembers. I know a lot of people that have online and none of them care about NES games.

    Yet everyone I know wants HD Remasters of N64 and Gamecube games, and they’re willing to pay for those evident by Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, and even Super Mario 64 remakes (remember the DS?). Just start porting these to the switch in HD instead of this crap nobody cares about…

    If it’s not one of your classic games, just let 5 people that actually remember the game download the ROMs online.

    Examples of games I’d pay to replay on Switch:
    – Mario 64 DS (port the enhanced version instead of the original)
    – Ocarina of Time & Majora’s Mask: Switch >>> 3DS
    – Luigi’s Mansion 3DS Remake: It looks worse on 3DS than it did on the Gamecube…
    – Animal Crossing E+: Most people don’t even know this exists since it was Japan only, but it was essentially the final version of the first Animal Crossing. You could replace the E-Reader functionality with Amiibo cards. Could even allow linking save to ACNH to unlock some exclusive recipes for some of the forgotten items…
    – Smash Melee: People still have a hard-on for this
    – FE: Aren’t the Gamecube FE(s) all >$100?
    – Mario Sunshine: _classic_
    – Mario Party 4-7: Add online for boards and side-modes. Would literally be better than the newest one lol
    – Wind Waker and Twilight Princess HD: Switch >>> Wii U, and you already ported everything else
    – Paper Mario: there’s already a petition for it
    – Kirby Airride: online coop :D

    1. There are tons of gems on the NES that nobody remembers. Fire and Ice, Bucky O’Hare, Felix the Cat. Shoot, there are 4 Dragon Quest games on that console which Square has no reason not to license since they’re damn sure not doing anything with the ROMs.

    2. HD remasters of most of the games you mentioned is definitely something I want. Especially the GCN games. There are some other GCN games you haven’t mentioned that I want HD remasters of, too, like Eternal Darkness & Baten Kaitos.

      1. Getting yourself the EON Gamecube HDMI adapter would be cheaper than buying 3 new HD Remasters, and its available right now.

        Though not everyone is a weirdo like me who loves original hardware.

  4. While I think the people complaining about NES titles in general are exposing their young age and strong bias more than anything, these picks are completely bewildering by any standard. You guys do know you could slap a translation patch on Mother 1 or Fire Emblem and rake in the cash right?

  5. While I don’t think these are the BEST games to reveal for NSO (seriously, we should at least have SNES games by now), but I will admit V.I.C.E.:Project Doom looks kinda cool for a game I never heard of.
    It looks like Ninja Gaiden meets Contra.
