A treble for the Nintendo Switch Online service in July

Nintendo announced the arrival of three new games for subscribers of its online service Nintendo Switch Online from July 28. This is an obscure trio of Super Nintendo games:

  • Claymates : play the role of Clayton, son of Professor Putty. Your father made a breakthrough, and with the serum he created, living creatures can be turned into clay! You will have to face many dangers, but you have the ability to transform into five different animals. You will need it for running, jumping, flying, swimming and climbing to overcome the obstacles in your way
  • Jelly boy : In this platform game, originally released exclusively in Europe in 1995, you are Jelly Boy, a candy to which the power of lightning has given the spark of life. You came to life knowing one thing: you must escape the candy factory. To get out of it you will have to collect puzzle pieces and survive the enemy heavyweights that are trying to stop you. You’ll need all of your wits, skills, and shapeshifting powers to survive this wacky adventure.
  • Bombuzal : Strategically detonate bombs in each level while leaving yourself a safe place to stand when the dust settles. In this puzzle game you will have to be quick because time is running out. Remember to factor in the size of each explosion, or it could put a dent in your careful planning. Good luck, and have fun!

The online service continues to generate negative reactions. Admittedly, its annual cost is low ($ 24.99 per year), like the poor selection of games offered in emulation. The Switch console marked its fourth anniversary in March, and Nintendo continues to add content in dribbles.

In Japan, the selection of the month on NSO is a little more interesting, again for the SNES:

  • Bombuzal
  • Shin Megami Tensei if …
  • Tuff E Nuff

It makes you wonder where are games yet adulated as Earthbound and Super Mario RPG, both created by Nintendo and not a third party.
