Going to probably start with super Mario World 2! I’ve been having a craving to going back and playing a Yoshi’s best game!

All though I’m a sucker for ALTTP and Super Metroid :/ I may have to run one of those first lol.

The decision is real lol

When’s the controller available? I’d like to get one

You'll need to pre-order and shipping will begin September 18th.



Not particularly interested in SNES games, might dabble with Kirby and Zelda, but I'm still pretty happy for this as it means N64 games down the line is a possibility.



The only way I'd be interested in this is if they do translations of Japanese games that never came out or never got patched...guess I'm never going to be interested in it. But for those who have never touched these games, I envy them greatly. Can't believe the put a decent and beefy JRPG like BOF on the service so early.



Hey, I'll finally be able to play the OG Star Fox :o

And I'll put some time into SMW and Kirby's Dreamland 3 (in the obvious waiting of Super Star)

I find it crazy in a single day they dropped so many absolutely amazing games on people with a online Sub, I mean... Super Mario World 1+2, A link to the Past, Super Metroid are all absolutely must play games, and A Link to the Past for those who didn't play it before are getting their hands on one of the best RPG's of the SNES, sets up so much of the Zelda main series items in this game, there's at least 20 hours of play there as long as ya don't follow along a walkthrough and just enjoy the game.

The OG Mario Kart and Starfox are great games... but they've aged a little bit, Star Fox in particular has a fairly rough framerate that I think if people haven't played it before they will probably find it difficult to see around.
But yeah... this pack of games we got, I mean if you just got a Switch and nothing other than an online sub you just got access to an amazing set of games to get lost in for the next month.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
