Two SNES game never before released in the United States are being added to the Nintendo Switch
Online lineup for February 2020.According to Business Wire
, the two SNES games coming to Nintendo Switch Online on February 19 – Pop’n TwinBee and Smash Tennis – have never had official releases in North America before now. They will be joined by two NES titles – Shadow of the Ninja and Eliminator Boat Duel.
Pop’n TwinBee is a vertically scrolling top down shooter developed by Konami which released in 1993 in Japan and then also in PAL regions but never made it to the United States. Smash Tennis also released in 1993, but was under the name Super Family Tennis in Japan and made by Namco. It gained the title Smash Tennis when it released in Europe in 1994.
These two titles bring the number of SNES games available on Nintendo Switch Online to 52 since they became available back in September 2019. This makes it a grand total of 78 games on the service which include other cool unreleased games like Star Fox 2, which came out in last December’s offering.
