GoNintendo Video - 5 Super Nintendo games that should be on Switch (+1 selfish pick!)

Not a dud in the bunch

Super Nintendo games are finally available on the Switch. There are 20 titles to play right now, with more to come in the future. If I had it my way, I'd line up these 5 titles to be the next on the service. Plus, I throw in a selfish pick I know has no chance of happening!

Yoshi's Island's hidden multiplayer mode is still included in the Switch Online SNES Collection version

Grab a friend and spit some seeds!

First off, did you know that Yoshi's Island has a hidden multiplayer mode? You and another pal can go head to head in some mini-game action, so long as you know the special code. This was in the original release, and still remains a part of the Switch Online SNES Collection version.

To access it, all you have to do is hold down the minus button while on the level select screen, and then press X, X, Y, B, A to access the menu for multiplayer mayhem.

Checking out the differences between American and Japanese Switch Online SNES games

Nintendo was a bit more strict with censorship back in the SNES days, which lead to some major and minor tweaks in a few of their games. Now that we have the Switch Online SNES and Famicom collections, we can get a better look at some of those changes. Check out the video above to see what you've been missing out on!

Switch Online NES & SNES games will no longer be released monthly, will instead be added randomly

This is fine...

Nintendo has confirmed a big change to how Switch Online NES games will be distributed, and the same goes for the newly-released Switch Online SNES games. Instead of distributing a batch of games each month on a single date, Nintendo is going to add in new titles whenever they feel like. Nintendo shared a comment with Vooks specifically stating that games “will be added after launch, but those releases will not adhere to a regular schedule.” Depending on how often Nintendo adds games, this could be a very good or very bad thing!

Yoshi's Island glitch from the SNES Classic Edition fixed in the Switch Online SNES Collection

Touch Fuzzy, Get Fixy

The SNES Classic included a bunch of great games, with Yoshi's Island being among the best. The port was nearly perfect, minus a graphical issue in the Touch Fuzzy, Get Dizzy level of the game. For whatever reason, every time you touched a Fuzzy, the background would go blank for just a second. That's not how it was on the original SNES version, and thankfully, that's now how it is on the Switch Online SNES Collection either. Check out the video above for a closer look!
