Nintendo and Sega are adding even more games to the Nintendo Switch online subscription service. As part of the $ 50-per-year expansion pack, players can now gain access to Space Harrier II, Shining Force II and Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball.
The games expansion pack joins the existing Genesis Hits roster as well as the ever-growing library of Nintendo 64 titles. While Nintendo has not released large batches of games at the NSO, it has maintained a steady stream of additions.
Notably, all three new Genesis Games publishers are Segani. So while Genesis has plenty of third-party support, Nintendo is primarily working with Sega to fill its opportunities.
Shining Force II is a game of turn-based tactics with a fantasy setting. It’s like a more RPG-enabled version of Nintendo’s own Fire Emblem. Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball, an alleged video game, is a pinball adventure starring a blue rat. And Space Harrier II is a run-and-gun arcade shooter.
Nintendo and Square Enix, meanwhile, refuse to release the Super Mario RPG on Nintendo Switch Online.
