For me, Vice: Project Doom will always be the "game with the Die Hard cover".

In addition to these NES titles, Switch Online members can download and play Mario Tennis Aces through August 13th for free.


Nintendo Switch Online's collection of NES titles is growing a little larger this month, as Kung-Fu Heroes and Vice: Project Doom are touching down on the system. Get ready to join Vice, including Officer Quinn Hart, who's on the case.

Switch Online's NES library is picking up two games in August that haven't been seen in almost three decades. The game features high-speed auto chases and action-packed battles that employ three different types of weapons.


Even though Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers can no longer be purchased (the purchasing window ended on July 31), Nintendo Switch Online members can still redeem them for digital versions of select Nintendo Switch games up to one year after they were purchased. If nothing else, though, this might be a chance to play some games you missed back when the NES was in its prime. During an ace of a promotion that lasts until 11:59 p.m. PT on August 20, the digital version of Mario Tennis Aces will be 30% off in Nintendo eShop.

To date, there are more than 40 other classic NES games available to Nintendo Switch Online members, with enhanced online features. Offer not available for free trial holders. Family memberships are also available that let up to seven family members access on the same account. Depending on the game, players can engage in online competitive or co-op multiplayer, or take turns controlling the action. To obtain a login, please register on the site.
