Nintendo Switch Online is a paid subscription service for the popular Nintendo Switch, which gives the player access to a large library of classic NES games. It is also a mandatory requirement to be able to play online and have support for games recorded in the cloud.
Since its release, the game library available on Nintendo Switch Online has grown exponentially. However, fans have been asking for much more for some time. In addition to NES games, they ask that games from other classic consoles begin to be added.
The most desired consoles by Nintendo Switch fans
Among the various consoles launched by the Japanese manufacturer over the years, there are some that have marked the childhood of millions of users. That's why they are the most requested. Among the various options, expect to see titles coming from SNES, Nintendo 64 and GameCube.
Although this advance from Nintendo seems to be very likely, there is still no information on a possible arrival date of these additional consoles.
However, Nintendo has confirmed that they are considering launching other platforms for the Nintendo Switch Online service. Unfortunately, they have not yet confirmed a possible final decision, or when it could start to be implemented.
Leak revealed important details about a possible implementation
Earlier this year, a leak emerged that filled Switch fans with hope. Looking at the many lines of code for the subscription service in January, several references to new emulators were discovered.
Although not confirmed, it appeared that they represented SNES, Nintendo 64 and GameCube.
So even though possible arrival dates are not yet known, it seems that Nintendo is really working on implementing new classic consoles in its subscription service.
