Super Nintendo titles might be coming to the Nintendo Switch Online service

Nintendo's Switch online service gives subscribers access to a library of classic games, specifically from the Nintendo Entertainment System. The collection of games has been expanding on a monthly basis, and titles such as Metroid, Ninja Gaiden, and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link have already been added. But a bigger expansion might be on the way, if data published by a dataminer is accurate.

User @KapuccinoHeck on Twitter has reportedly uncovered a list of 22 games coming to the service, but they're not NES titles. It looks like Nintendo is planning to add games from the SNES, also known as Super Nintendo, to Switch Online, and the launch might have a solid selection to start with. The list includes Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, F-ZERO, and many more.

The addition of SNES games to the Nintendo Switch Online service wouldn't come as a huge surprise, especially following the company's discontinuation of both the NES and SNES Classic after the holidays. But the potential news doesn't end there, as another hacker has pointed out that titles from even more consoles might be added in the future.

Data in the NES Switch Online app mentions not two, but four types of emulators, each potentially referring to a different console. Kachikachi and Canoe refer to the NES and SNES; respectively, but the other two, Hiyoko and Count, are still a mystery. Of course, Nintendo has made no official announcements regarding these discoveries, so there's no telling when this expansion will actually happen.
