Four NES and SNES retro classics are joining the Nintendo Switch Online service this month. How lucky are we?!

Get ready gamers, there’s a lot to look forward to this month especially from Nintendo. Not only did they announce that Overcooked! 2 is free to play for an entire week (yes, you heard right), but they’ve also announced four classic NES and SNES titles arriving on 17 February.

Nintendo – best known for the Super Mario Bros franchise, which sees the release of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury coming this Friday – has included Doomsday Warrior, Psycho Dream, Prehistorik Man, and Fire ‘n Ice to the online collection.

Below is the full rundown about each game, courtesy of the official Nintendo.

Psycho Dream

When Sayaka doesn’t return to reality after entering an immersive virtual world known as a D-Movie, the protagonists, Ryo and Maria, must progress through a terrifying fantasy game called Legend of the Fallen Capital to rescue her and bring her back to reality.

Doomsday Warrior

It’s the Doomsday Warrior versus the Doom Squad! This action game features an evil sorcerer who has recruited seven warriors to take over Earth. But one of the Doom Squad has resisted the influence and now stands against the rest as the Doomsday Warrior!

Prehistorik Man

Sam the caveman’s quest to save his village begins! Sam lives in a village whose food is stolen by dinosaurs. To get more, Sam must collect bones, which he can then use to buy food. On his way, he’ll need to make use of a variety of weapons, vehicles, and attacks, including shouting, to attack all on-screen foes. Can Sam reach the dinosaur graveyard and collect enough bones?

Fire ‘n Ice

As Dana, you have been chosen by the Queen of the Winter Fairies to bear the power of ice magic. With it, you must defend your home, Coolmint Island, from the wicked wizard Druidle and his flames!

Each of these titles will be released Nintendo Switch Online next week on 17 February. To access them, you’ll need to have a Nintendo Switch Online membership. In the meantime, why not check out the list of games available on Nintendo Switch Online here.
