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.

Zelda II: The Adventure Of Link and Blaster Master are headed to Nintendo Switch Online on January 16. In the immortal words of the teacher from Willy Wonka: “Just two?” Oh well, at least they’re good ones. Looking forward to “special save data” for Zelda II that’ll make it less annoying. Yeah, I said it. Fight me.
