To say that the Nintendo Switch Online retro libraries have been getting more games would be an understatement. Lately, Nintendo has surprisingly abandoned their slow drip of adding games. In fact, a lot of retro games have been added in just the last couple of months alone.
That trend continues tonight. Nintendo has announced that Space Harrier 2, Shining Force 2, and Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball are now available to play for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members. Nintendo of America tweeted about the news, so you can see their official tweet down below.
- In Sonic The Hedgehog Spinball, Dr. Robotnik’s fortress is a giant pinball machine! Help Sonic spin, bounce and bump through four different pinball zones made up of glittering caverns, slimy sewers, boiling lava and monstrous machinery to collect the Chaos Emeralds and save the inhabitants of Mobius from a mountain of trouble.
- Shining Force II joins the original Shining Force in the SEGA Genesis – Nintendo Switch Online library! In this tactical RPG fantasy adventure, you’re tasked with leading the titular Shining Force in cinematic battles against an ancient evil that threatens to overtake the land.
- Become the heroic Space Harrier in Space Harrier II and battle a bevy of wicked creatures in this frantic and challenging action game, which was one of the original launch titles for the SEGA Genesis!
That’s actually a pretty strong trio. If they can keep up the pace for several years, there might be a compelling argument to jump in then.
