Nintendo Switch Online adds the freakishly hard NES Mario next week

This trend will continue into April, as three more classic titles will be making their way to the NES Online service. This isn't the game's first rodeo in the West; it's been on the SNES, the Wii Virtual Console, and the Game Boy Color in various guises.

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels: Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros.® 2, this game has previously made only brief cameo appearances in the Western Hemisphere. Mario fans will appreciate the familiar look and feel of the game, while finding that its updated gameplay creates an entirely new challenge. The good news is that you can totally avoid this disappointing situation by always keeping a second controller handy for backup.

Punch-Out! Featuring Mr. Dream - As young boxer Little Mac, players have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to battle the big guys of the World Video Boxing Association circuit. So, it added Mario elements to a very different 2D platformer, Doki Doki Panic, and released that outside Japanse as Super Mario Bros. The original North American release was Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! but once Nintendo's license to use Tyson expired, he was replaced with Mr. Dream as the final boss.


Finally, Switch Online subscribers can download vertical scrolling shooter Star Soldier. Your mission is to halt a galactic invasion masterminded by Starbrain, a giant computer inhabiting a floating space station.

The Nintendo Switch can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways, including a handheld mode and more.

Those interested can pre-order the controller starting in May.
