Star Fox 2, Kirby Super Star And More Confirmed For Nintendo Switch Online


It has been a while since Nintendo ever updated its Switch Online service with anything, but just when everyone figured it had been abandoned, in comes a new announcement. Nintendo is adding four new SNES games and two new NES games to Nintendo Switch Online next week, and the list includes Star Fox 2 — the abandoned game resurrected to sell SNES Classics two Christmases ago.

The other picks are also pretty good: Super Punch-Out, Breath Of Fire II, and Kirby Super Star for the SNES; Crystalis and Journey To Silius for the NES. Journey to Silius in particular has a pretty rockin’ soundtrack:

Star Fox 2 – This 3D rail-shooter and second installment of the Star Fox series was first designed for the Super NES, but went unreleased until it appeared on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system in 2017. This time, Emperor Andross is on a crusade to conquer the Lylat system and the Star Fox team itself. After a long wait, Star Fox is back in action.

Super Punch-Out!! – Featuring the tight gameplay and humor the series is known for, this sequel to the NES classic sees Little Mac return to the ring with the World Video Boxing Association belt once again at stake.

Kirby Super Star – That awful King Dedede is at it again – he’s stolen all the food in Dream Land. It’s up to Kirby to get it back and ultimately save Popstar from being taken over. There’s never a dull moment as Kirby dashes, flies and fights!

Breath of Fire II – Set 500 years after the original, take on the role of Ryu, the last member of the Dragon Clan. A cast of unusual and exciting companions join you in your adventures across a wondrous land full of magic and mystery.

Crystalis – An epic story for action-RPG fans is ready to unfold. Set in a world where civilization lies in ruins, the young protagonist awakes from cryogenic sleep and the adventure begins. Collect the Sword of Wind and venture into the unknown.

Journey to Silius – Join Jay on his run and gun mission to take down the mechanical army responsible for his father’s death. Defeat endless waves of attack robots and fulfill his father’s dream of developing a space colony in the Silius Solar System.

You know what would be perfect with these six games? The SNES Switch controller. Too bad it’s sold out until January. If you don’t care about 100% authenticity, you might as well ask Santa for an 8BitDo instead.


  1. These are all really great games.

    It’s just as well that the game uploads have decreased; Nintendo has put out all of the games they CAN put on this service. After this, it’s pretty much just the Donkey Kong Country trilogy, EarthBound Beginnings, Super Mario RPG and some odds and ends
