With believers in retro gaming being blown away, Nintendo adds Super Nintendo triplets to the Nintendo Switch Online library. Subscribers of Switch can download their favorite games from the Amazing Hebereke, Super R-Type and Wrecking Crew 98 directly to their Switch consoles.

Back in the day

These vintage titles, which may be unknown to many, constitute a diverse selection of genres from the time of the 16-bit era. Amazing Hebereke is a funny four-player battle royale game having adorable but deadly creatures. First, it came out in 1994 in Japan for friends to use different fighting techniques and construct their stages.

However, Supr R-Type is a hard side-scrolling shmup from 1991. Avatar is a R-9 ship’s commander whose duty is to battle the invading BYDO Empire. There are seven stages full of enemies, obstacles and massive bosses. Understanding the arsenal of power-ups and upgradeable weapons will make the difference between life and death.

Completing this group is Wrecking Crew ’98, an updated compilation of the original Wrecking Crew in addition to a competitive multiplayer version that is only available with this package. The ’96 game requires players to control Mario with the task of strategically demolishing obstacles, while the ’98 edition comes with head-to-head destruction puzzles.

Preserving gaming history

The inclusion of such SNES games in the Nintendo Switch Online repository represents an amazing accomplishment for retrowave fans and collectors. This shows that Nintendo is devoted to the mission of the conservation and preservation of games for the different classic systems from the company’s great back catalogues.

“Nintendo has always wanted to draw a solid line between its classic games as a heritage and with modern contemporary players getting to enjoy,” said Doug Bowser, President of Nintendo of America. “We hope to make sure more and more fans can relive these masterpieces on new Nintendo Switch Online service which will allow people to enjoy the release for these games on modern hardware.”
