You may remember that, just last month, a total of 22 SNES games were spotted in the Nintendo Switch Online – Nintendo Entertainment System app. Ever since, and especially with Nintendo’s public commitment to “boost the appeal” of its Switch Online service, we’ve been practically convinced that SNES games will make it to the console in the near future.
In an interesting turn of events, though, today’s NES app update has reportedly removed all mention of the SNES titles previously discovered. Twitter user @itssimontime, who claims to data mine games, has spotted the change today, with his tweet being shared by previous leaker and data miner, @KapuccinoHeck.
Games originally spotted within the app’s code included the likes of Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Star Fox, and Super Metroid, all of which would have rather literally “boosted the appeal” of the service pretty instantly. Of course, the reality here is that this still doesn’t really mean all that much; we weren’t supposed to know about the games hidden in the app’s code in the first place, and Nintendo still hasn’t confirmed whether or not the SNES games will arrive at all.
What do you think? Are SNES games on the way? Will they arrive sooner than we think? Share your thoughts down below in the comments.
