Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can now access four more retro games via the emulation services.
The most recent games added are Quest for Camelot, Kirby’s Star Stacker, Joy Mech Fight, and Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day! across the Game Boy, SNES, and NES libraries.
Granted, Kirby’s Star Stacker is the only game I’ve heard of previously on this list, but Quest for Camelot piqued my interest (for non-gaming reasons).
Quest of Camelot is an action role-playing game based on the Warner Bros. animated film. of the same name. I’m not really interested in the plot details, but the movie’s soundtrack contains original songs performed by Andrea Corr. That alone kept me casually interested. Quest of Camelot is available to play on Game Boy emulators.
Kirby’s Star Stacker is a remake of the original on Game Boy and is commonly known as Kirby’s Super Star Stacker. This is the first time that the SNES version of the game has been released overseas with an addition to Switch Online.
Joy Mech Fight is a fighting game, but with (shockingly) robots. Initially released on the NES in 1993, this is also the first time the game has been released in Europe and North America. It’s a similar story to Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day!, also added to the NES library, which is one of the previous entries in the Kunio-kun series (more commonly known as River City in the West).
It should be noted that all games except Quest of Camelot are playable in Japanese only. Which of these take your fancy?
