Double Dragon II, City Connection, and Volleyball are this month’s NES games being added to Switch Online on June 12. Nothing we haven’t seen on Virtual Console in the past, although playing the two-player Double Dragon II online sounds like fun.

Nintendo Switch Online’s next batch of NES games arrives on May 15 and includes Donkey Kong Jr., Clu Clu Land, and VS. Excitebike. The selection makes sense since it leans into the service’s online multiplayer. Still, it’s no substitute for finally getting SNES games on the Switch.

What year is it?! If you still want to make 8-bit NES games, you can demo and buy “NES Maker” software here at GDC, which lets you create an NES game with a GUI interface, no programming necessary. The games you make can run on actual NES hardware.
