5 Classic Rare Titles Hit Nintendo Switch Online Today

Nintendo Switch Online, and Expansion Pack, subscribers are getting four classic games added to the service, including Battletoads and Killer Instinct!

During this morning’s Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase, the company revealed some “new” retro games coming to the Switch Online service beginning today; all of which are some iconic titles from Rare. Of course, Japan is getting Mother 3 today, but whatevs…It’s still cool to be able to play the original Killer Instinct…I guess.

Five games, all developed by Rare, are being added to the Nintendo Switch Online and Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack* collections … today! Nintendo Switch Online members can enjoy KILLER INSTINCT and BATTLETOADS IN BATTLEMANIACS as part of the Super NES – Nintendo Switch Online library, and SNAKE RATTLE N ROLL and R.C. PRO-AM as part of the NES – Nintendo Switch Online library. Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members can play those titles and Blast Corps, which brings destructive vehicular action to the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online library.

These five games will be available to Nintendo Switch Online and Expansion Pack (for the N64 game) subscribers beginning today! Which are you playing first?
