The SNES games finally arrived on Nintendo Switch, joining the already existing NES library to create an ever-expanding treasure trove of retro temptations for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. Previously, when we only had NES games to enjoy, the new titles came out (almost) religiously on the second Wednesday of every month, but that was about to change.
The official Nintendo website in Japan publishes an article covering the new SNES gaming service, indicating that new titles will appear "irregularly" and not every month. This new format will also apply to the NES library, so it looks like any new additions to any console may appear at any time.
As you might expect, it looks like this is definitely going to be a world affair, not just limited to Japan. Australia's Vooks website has received a statement from Nintendo in their region saying that new games "will be added after launch, but these versions will not adhere to a regular schedule."
Does this mean that we will only get new games every few months or will we be left with a lot of surprises every week? Only time will tell.
