The NES, Super NES and Game Boy selections of the Nintendo Switch subscription are enriched with classics to discover urgently.
While The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom continues to monopolize all our attention, we almost forget that the Switch has other games to offer and that in addition, some are (almost) free! For only €19.99 per year, the Nintendo Switch Online subscription not only allows you to play online, but also offers a selection of retro games on NES, Super NES and even Game Boy. Subscribers to the Online + Additional Pack (€39.99 per year) also benefit from Nintendo 64, Game Boy Advance and Mega Drive games, as well as expansions for Switch titles.
These catalogs of what used to be called the Virtual Console are gradually being enhanced with classics to (re)discover to the delight of retro gaming fans. To get this sunny June off to a good start, Nintendo is doing us the honor of adding four titles to its selection. Among these nuggets, one of them is even at the origin of an independent game that has become a real phenomenon. To your Switches: here are the new features not to be missed, available now.

Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Rumble (Game Boy)
Here is an innovative title for its time! Thanks to accelerometers slipped into the cartridge, players had to tilt their Game Boy in order to walk Kirby through levels in view from above. This funny spin-off offers an unexpected return and it is now the turn of the joy-cons gyroscope or the pro controller to take over.
Blaster Master: Enemy Below (Game Boy)
This Game Boy Color game released in 2000 returns after a first passage through the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. This daring adventure does not hesitate to mix the genres of run and gun, shoot ’em up and platform to give birth to a damn effective recipe.
This is a first in Europe. Babel no To, a title hitherto exclusive to Japanese territory is making its debut here. This famous game MysteryTower for the occasion is an adventure dotted with platforms and puzzles. 37 years after its initial release on the Japanese archipelago, it would be a shame not to give this surprise by Namco a chance.
Harvest Moon (Super NES)
The origin of the phenomenon Stardew Valley makes its way to Nintendo Switch. Franchise Harvest Moon has marked different generations of players by establishing the standards of agricultural simulation. Grow fruits and vegetables throughout the seasons to grow your farm in this cute and addictive game.
