Super Nintendo games are finally coming to Nintendo Switch Online

It's been a long time coming, but after all the rumors and speculation, Nintendo has officially announced that SNES titles are coming to the Nintendo Switch system through the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service. Just like the NES titles that were available at launch almost a year ago, these games can be played at no additional cost.

The SNES titles will also feature the capabilities that Nintendo enabled in the NES games, including the ability to play online with friends in games that support multiplayer features, and the rewind feature that was introduced for NES games a couple months ago.

SNES games will be available for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers starting tomorrow, September 5, starting with a batch of 20 games, which include Stunt Race FX, available in a new console for the first time since the original release. Here's the full list:

Demon's Crest F-ZERO
Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics Kirby's Dream Course
Kirby's Dream Land 3 Pilotwings
Star Fox Stunt Race FX
Super E.D.F. EARTH DEFENSE FORCE Super Ghouls'n Ghosts
Super Mario Kart Super Mario World
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island Super Metroid
Super Puyo Puyo 2 Super Soccer
Super Tennis The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Of course, just as with the NES titles, more games will be added over time, so there'll be more to look forward to in the future.

Additionally, as it did last year, Nintendo is releasing a special SNES-style wireless controller to be used with the Nintendo Switch, specifically for these titles. Unlike last year's offerings, though, they don't charge by docking into the Switch itself, and instead use a USB Type-C charger. They're also sold individually, rather than in pairs. Available exclusive for Nintendo Switch Online members, the controller will cost $29.99.
