Nintendo Switch Online Adds More NES Games – Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, and Star Soldier

Nintendo has announced a few more games joining their ongoing roster of classic Nintendo Entertainment System games for Switch.

The service is adding Super Mario Bros.: The Lost LevelsPunch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, and Star Soldier on April 10th. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the classic games.

Here is an overview of each game, via Nintendo:

  • Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels – Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2, this game has previously made only brief cameo appearances in the Western Hemisphere. Mario fans will appreciate the familiar look and feel of the game, while finding that its updated gameplay creates an entirely new challenge. In addition to the classic enemies already known to fans worldwide, there are also Poison Mushrooms, backward Warp Zones and the occasional wind gust (which can help or hinder your progress).
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream – As young boxer Little Mac, players have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to battle the big guys of the World Video Boxing Association circuit. Take them on one by one, starting with skinny Glass Joe. Battle up through King Hippo and all the way to the WVBA Champion himself. Players use their best jabs, hooks and power uppercuts to knock out opponents, but must also dodge jaw-breaking blows by paying attention to subtle changes in their foe’s body position.
  • Star Soldier – The standard for vertically scrolling shooters, Star Soldier is the original game that spawned all of the titles in the long-running Soldier series. Go inside a floating space station inhabited by a giant computer known as Starbrain. Your mission: to stop Starbrain’s galactic invasion by piloting Caesar, a new compact space fighter, through 16 deadly stages.

The Nintendo Switch Online app, which comes with a paid Nintendo Switch Online subscription via the companion app, lets users play classic Nintendo Entertainment System games on the Switch. These games have online play added (where appropriate), so you can play together online, share your screen, and more.
