Nintendo's online service for the Nintendo Switch

Ever since Nintendo rolled out the Nintendo Switch Online service, fans of have been asking one thing. Where are the Super Nintendo games? With no apparent reply from the company.

However, it looks like that SNES games might be making their way over after all. According to Twitter user @Kapuccino, who recently data mined the Nintendo Switch Online NES application. In doing so it was noticed that was a listing of planned Super Nintendo titles for the services.

  • 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 
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
  • Super Mario All-Stars
  • Breath of Fire 2

A keen eye will also notice that many of these games made their way onto the Super Nintendo Classic. The same console that Nintendo has mentioned that once all the stock is gone, the only way to play to games again, legally (without owning the actual Super Nintendo that is) is via Nintendo Switch Online.

In addition to the games, it also looks like there are also several emulator types hidden among the services. This was found thanks to the efforts of @Kapuccino and two other data miners, Simon1844 and OatmealDomme.

While they’re not sure what the last two emulators could be, I’d wager this would be either for the Gameboy and possibly a Nintendo 64 emulator. It would only make sense, one emulator per console.

So thanks to these new findings, it’s not a question or if Super Nintendo, Gameboy and N64 games make it to the Nintendo Switch Online service. It’s now a question of when we’ll see them.
