Why Nintendo can’t just release SNES, N64 and GameCube games on the Switch is beyond our understanding. They even have the GameCube adapter working with the Switch, which is perfect for GameCube titles. The Switch is a huge success, but it’s really missing the Virtual Console that was popular on both the Wii and Wii U. For now, we’ll have to do with NES games until such time that they plan to extend their online offer.
This month three more NES classics will be added to the ever-growing line-up. City Connection, Double Dragon II and Volleyball will be added on 12 June. Volleyball feels a bit pointless and City Connection can be good fun, but Double Dragon II could be one of the first games to really take advantage of that online co-op feature. Now, if only Nintendo can work on the quality as it’s a lag fest with most other co-op games.
