Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online: Three games are coming to the service*** on Nov. 14, including:

Metroid – The first installment of the Metroid series introduces us to the hideous title creatures and the slick, cybernetic bounty hunter Samus Aran. As Samus, your mission is to penetrate the space pirates’ home planet, Zebes, and keep them from destroying the galaxy with the dangerous life-forms known as Metroids. With its deep and complex gameplay, excellent music and a rare sense of setting, Metroid establishes a frightening ambience that will haunt and entertain you for a very long time.

Mighty Bomb Jack – The hero of the game, Jack, must make his way through 16 levels of a pyramid in order to defeat the demon Belzebut and rescue the royal Pamera family. Each level is split into two parts: an action zone and a Royal Palace room. Action zones can be split up into several portions and contain power-ups, such as money bags, Mighty Coins and Mighty Drinks, usually hidden in treasure chests.

TwinBee – A hit sensation back in the day, this vertical-scrolling arcade game made its 1986 release on the Famicom in Japan. Guide the spacecrafts, TwinBee and WinBee, as you dodge and destroy waves of aerial and ground enemies to save the island from a ruthless conqueror. Some of the unusual enemies you’ll encounter include kitchen knives, bamboo shoots and octopi, but these spacecrafts have more than enough firepower to blast them out of the sky.


YouTube – Kick back and relax with YouTube on your Nintendo Switch system. Enjoy entertainment like music videos and shows, plus gaming livestreams, how-tos and much more. Explore a world of videos with recommendations and easy access to your channel subscriptions. So grab your friends, family and your Nintendo Switch controller, and enjoy YouTube together.
