Nintendo is unlikely to suffer too much of a drop-off from its torrid year of Switch sales, however, according to Katsuhiko Hayashi of industry tracker Famitsu Group.

It has been a regular thing for Nintendo Switch Online to add classic games.

One game will be coming to the NES library: S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team.


If you want to get the Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest on the Nintendo Switch, first you'll have to get yourself a subscription to Switch Online.

Granted, we are receiving the second Donkey Kong Country title that showcased Diddy Kong, and Picross is a classic puzzle game that should keep fans entertained by value alone, if not by including Mario's lovable face.

Are you excited like us for the return of Donkey Kong Country 2? Released in 1995, the SNES game was not released in countries such as the USA. Enter Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong, who are ready to fearless the seas to save our hairy hero. It is a sequel to Mario's Picross on Game Boy, and it, ya know, plays like Picross. Gameplay is that of your standard picross puzzle, with players working out how the numbers correlate to which box needs to be colored, or in this case, chiselled out by Mario.


This year's holiday season is going to be a fiercely contested time for console makers, with Microsoft Corp. and Sony Corp. planning to release new generations of their Xbox and PlayStation families. The story follows four people that have been affected by an economic war.

S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team is a NES game that was first released in Japan in 1990 and is a science fiction side-view shoot-'em-up that went up against such games as Gradius, Contra, and Life Force.

A Nintendo Switch Online membership grants instant access to a total of 90 classic games to explore and enjoy in the service's expanding libraries.


Now that the Switch Online is finally getting one of the SNE's very finest games, you might also be wanting to grab yourself a subscription if you still haven't gotten one. There's nothing he loves more than crafting a guide that will help someone.
