‘Donkey Kong Country’ & More Classic Games Coming to Nintendo Switch Online Next Week

In addition to new content and multiplayer on modern Nintendo Switch games, one of the perks of having a Nintendo Switch Online membership is access to incredible, classic SNES and NES video games. Games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Super Mario Bros. 3, etc. are all at your fingertips on Nintendo Switch.

Next week, three more classic games will join Nintendo Switch Online. For NES, The Immortal. For SNES, Natsume Championship Wrestling and the arguably one of the greatest Donkey Kong games ever made, Donkey Kong Country.

Super NES

  • Donkey Kong Country – Armed with chest-pounding muscle, mighty barrel rolls and awesome vine-swinging skills, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong set out to face their adversaries, K. Rool and his reptilian crew of Kremlings. Play solo, compete with a friend or play cooperatively in over 100 levels filled with collectibles and hidden bonus levels.
  • Natsume Championship Wrestling– Choose from 12 outrageous wrestlers and bring the pain! With a robust grappling system and over 50 moves to master, experience the most realistic wrestling action of the 16-bit era. Test your might against the AI, or up to two players can compete in exhibition, tag team and round robin matches.


  • The Immortal – Grab your Wizard’s Pack and let your quest unfold as you explore the Labyrinth of Eternity. Delve into the dungeon’s depths to uncover the mysteries of the ancient ruins. Your teacher Mordamir awaits below!

All three games will re-release as part of Nintendo Switch Online on their respective console apps on July 15, 2020.
