Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby’s Adventure Join NES Lineup for Nintendo Switch Online

It’s been half a year since the launch of Nintendo’s online service for the Switch, the aptly titled Nintendo Switch Online, and we’re today seeing the latest update to their NES library included with your subscription. Coming in hot for the month of February, the latest update offers subscribers access to two classics, Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby’s Adventure, both of which will be playable on February 13, 2019.

While both Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby’s Adventure are very tantalizing incentives to subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online, much like previous months, these games have already been made available on the NES Classic mini-console. For those of you who don’t own an NES Classic, however, if you’re looking to enjoy some incredible titles of the era then look no further.

Each game is described below:

Super Mario Bros. 2 – Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad embark on a quest together to save the day against the villainous Wart. Pick up items and throw them at your adversaries to clear levels in seven fantastical worlds. Even enemies can be picked up and tossed across the screen. Each character has a unique set of abilities: Luigi can jump higher and farther than any of the other characters, Toad can dig extremely fast and pull items out of the ground quicker than anyone, and the princess is the only one who can jump and hover temporarily. This unique installment in the Mario series will keep you coming back for more!

Kirby’s Adventure – Not everything is well in Dream Land. For some mysterious reason, the Dream Spring, a magical well that is the reservoir for all the dreams of the citizens of Dream Land, is no longer working. Everyone is being subjected to their worst nightmares every time they go to sleep. Upon reaching the Dream Spring, Kirby finds out that evil King Dedede has stolen the Star Rod, thus depriving Dream Land of the magical energy that feeds its spring. Using 20 unique tricks and your ability to steal your enemies’ powers by swallowing them, you’ll have to make your way through a horrific land filled with all kinds of nightmares. Recover the broken pieces of the Star Rod, and everyone in Dream Land will sleep peacefully once again. If you fail, the citizens of Dream Land will be subjected to a lifetime of terrible nightmares.

Set to be made available for subscribers of Nintendo Switch Online on February 13, those interested in further information can check out Nintendo’s official website.
