Nintendo Enthusiasts Upset Over New SNES Library Entries


Nintendo Enthusiasts Upset Over New SNES Library Entries

By subscribing to Nintendo’s online service for the Switch, known as Nintendo Switch Online, users can access online multiplayer, exclusive online titles like Tetris 99, and ever-growing collections of games from the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo Entertainment System. While these collections contain classics such as Super Mario Bros. and Kirby Super Star, many cherished titles are conspicuously absent.

The fan community has been vocal about their requests for new games, with common appeals for the SNES library centered around titles like Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Earthbound, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. However, whenever Nintendo releases announcements showcasing new library additions, the chosen games are often obscure, leading to frustration and disappointment among the user base.

As of now, the latest Switch Online video on Nintendo’s YouTube channel introducing Claymates, Jelly Boy, and Bombuzal (games unfamiliar to me and my acquaintances) into the SNES library has garnered a like/dislike ratio of 2.6K to 9.6K, a trend seen frequently with such videos. Though Nintendo disables comments on these videos, users express their discontent on platforms like Twitter, drawing parallels to the days of renting games from Blockbuster.

To compound frustrations for Western users, players on the Japanese eShop are enjoying a selection of coveted retro games from the Japanese counterpart of the SNES, the Super Famicom, including titles like Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei. In response to negative feedback, Nintendo surveyed Switch Online users, indicating dissatisfaction with the current offerings. Whether Nintendo will address these concerns remains uncertain.

(function (d, s, id) {
var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];

js.src = “//”;
fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);

setTimeout(loadFB, 0);
