According to Twitter account NinStatusBot, a bot which tracks the status of Nintendo’s servers, maintenance has been scheduled for both the NES and SNES apps for Nintendo Switch Online.

Last time this bot reported on similar maintenance, we saw the release of titles like Earthworm Jim 2 and Dig Dug II. It’s totally possible that this maintenance is for something else entirely, but fans of retro games may want to keep their eyes peeled on Friday.

I second that Mystical Ninja. Probably the best game I rented on SNES but never bought.
