Switch Online NES Collection being updated with Kung-Fu Heroes and Vice: Project Doom on Aug. 21st, 2019 (More Kunio-Kun for Japan)

The latest batch of upcoming NES games


On August 21, two action-packed NES™ games are coming to the Nintendo Entertainment System™ – Nintendo Switch Online collection: Kung-Fu Heroes and Vice: Project Doom.

Kung-Fu Heroes

Monsters have taken Princess Min-Min and the 10 treasures of the land, and the people have fallen into sorrow. Only Kung-Fu Masters Jacky and Lee can save the princess and retrieve the treasures! Their journey will take them to eight different castles filled with hosts of traps and obstacles. Use punches and the Miracle Kick to defeat the enemies. You will need quick wits and lightning reflexes to make it to the last castle!

Vice: Project Doom

There exists a group of undercover detectives who dare stand up to the evil in the world... They are known as Vice. Officer Quinn Hart, a member of Vice, is on the case and after the truth. High-speed car chases, action-packed battles employing three types of weapons and a mode with three 3D rail-shooting stages all bring this cyberpunk world to life.

In Japan, the Switch Online NES Collection will be getting Downtown Nekketsu Kōshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundōkai instead of Vice: Project Doom.

Vice Project Doom is actually considered to be one of the best obscure gems of the entire NES library. It's never ever been rereleased as people assumed the rights fell into the same obscurity as Vic Tokai games, but it seems SEGA owns them somehow. This is actually a good month, 2 games instead of 3 nonwithstanding, since we're getting two new obscure gems (Though Kung Fu Heroes did show up on Wii U VC super late in the system's life, it's a pretty obscure game even there) that are both of high quality. You can't tell me with a straight face that last month's trainwreck of two dull blackbox games is somehow better than a month where the games are actually great

Man what classics! I've been dying to play Vice: Project Doom since I learned about it 3 seconds ago! I mean Im so happy with Nintendo Switch Online. Super Nintendo!? N64!? Who cares about those when you have Vice: Project Doom and Kung Fu-Heroes?

Damn this $20 a year is really paying off. I cant wait to play these 2 masterpieces when I get done lagging in Smash Bros. while using my phone to voice chat. Good thing this is the year 1999, I can't imagine online getting any better than this.

I agree with your general statement, but I must object to Wrecking Crew being referred to as part of a trainwreck. Wrecking Crew is a great game.

Oh I definitely have fond memories of Wrecking Crew in Animal Crossing and consider it fun, but honestly for being one of two games on a games service in a month, it really doesn't have much to it nor does it really have anything that would get people to play it on a time and time again basis. I think if they didn't release DK3 and put in something like Shadow of the Ninja to go alongside Wrecking crew it would have made July a better month

Honestly, I'm just pretending that I paid $20 for Tetris 99.

Holy frick, Vice is really a good game. It never came on VC and Kung Fu Heroes is a fun score chaser as well. THIS is the sort of stuff I wanna see from NSO: more obscure gems instead of boring stuff we've seen thousands of times already. I'm game for this month.

The service could be appealing to me if there was more like this. However I expect next month will be Urban Champion or something.

I wont be happy until I get contra bubble bobble or tmnt2 arcade with online..

I’d subscribe right away if they got SNES games and Turtles in Time. I have other “methods” for playing it but I’d know they’re taking NSO seriously with a get like that.

I have to assume that the rights involved in the TMNT games are a minefield by now.

Arcade 1Up managed to get the rights so I have to believe Nintendo could too.

But yeah, I don’t expect them to. I’d subscribe if they did though.

I'm actually looking forward to playing Vice: Project Doom. As for the service, it's $20 for one year, the same price of 4 NES games on Virtual Console. As I would have bought SMB1, SMB3, Donkey Kong, Zelda 1, among others, I would have paid much more that way and not risk playing awesome games such as Ninja Gaiden. On top of that there is Tetris 99, which is awesome. Cloud save can be a life saver. So I can't say I'm dissatisfied with the service.
Would I welcome SNES and GameBoy games? Definitely! The more the merrier. But as someone who didn't own an NES and didn't pay attention to most NES games on Virtual Console before, I'm getting to play a bunch of great games for the first time. Smile

Give Vice Project Doom a chance. It's one of the best NES games and is very rare to find physically

I read all about Vice: Project Doom in Nintendo Power when I was a kid. Just reading about the story was fascinating to me, but I was never able to get my hands on the game... I suppose now is my chance to finally try it.

This is the kind of stuff Nintendo should be putting on the service... good but obscure stuff.

this are great games Nintendo but me and my cousin are waiting for you to add others games and consoles like SNES and N64 for your online service.

So, Vice: Project Doom is an obscure, rare find? A gem? Neat! Y'never think about the games you've owned for years as 'hard to find' until someone says so... I guess it's a nice surprise when hawking your old collection (like that's ever happening)
