Let's hope this one is true
Following the leak of a Switch Online GBA/GBC/GB emulator, we have even more information about legacy content offered via Switch Online. Today, we’re going to take a look at games not yet included in the Switch Online NES Collection.
It seems that the same leak that provided a look at the GBA emulator for Switch also included a different version of the Switch Online NES Collection. In a video, the apps are compared side-by-side, and they start off with a lineup that’s exactly the same. You see a number of NES titles as they’ve been released by Nintendo thus far, and then the app showcases a bunch of titles that haven’t made their way to the platform yet.
As you can see in the image above, there’s a slew of titles included in this version of the Switch Online NES Collection that haven’t made it out yet. From multiple Mega Man titles to Castlevania games, Contra, and more, it seems like there were a lot of heavy-hitters planned for the service.
Now, here’s the thing about this leak. This version of the Switch Online NES Collection has a build-date of October 2019. What does this mean for the future of these games on Switch Online? This might have been a list of titles Nintendo was hoping to include, but they didn’t manage to secure deals. It could also be an actual list of what to expect going forward. Nintendo obviously isn’t going to talk about this leak, so all we can do is sit back and cross our fingers that these games show up.
