Enter Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong, ready to challenge the seas to save our hairy hero.
As revealed by Nintendo, all of the aforementioned titles will be added to the respective NES and SNES apps on Wednesday the 23rd of September, which is nearly exactly a week from today. Diddy Kong's Cartwheel can run across a distance, while Dixie Kong's Helicopter Spin will allow it to float from heights.
Today during a semi-enlightening corporate management policy briefing from Nintendo, we got an updated figure for Switch Online membership: 26 million "+" paid members.
The SNES app is also getting Mario's Super Picross, which is a fun little puzzle game that has actually never been released outside of Japan, as well as The Peace Keepers, which is the third entry in the Rushing Beat beat 'em up series by Jaleco. This puzzle game is launched with Super Famicom In 1995 and it hasn't launched in the U.S. yet. In our review of S.C.A.T. on Wii's Virtual Console, we said "So S.C.A.T. won't be the longest action experience you've ever had, which is disappointing - but at least the rest of this package does a solid job of checking off marks on the awesomeness list".
The Peace Keepers - The DM Corp is responsible for a new string of troubling incidents. It's up to Flynn and his crew to rise up and stop them. Diddy's Kong Quest, Mario's Super Picross, and The Peace Keepers from SNES and S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Team from NES are headed to Switch Online on September 23. The story changes based on the route you take!
S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team- In the year 2029, Supreme Commander Vile Malmort and his army land on Earth, aiming for world domination. Your main goal is to send these alien invaders for mobilization. They might have been able to get away with Arnold as a generic name, but there is only one Sigourney on the face of the Earth. Looking forward to 2021 and after, Furukawa said Nintendo plans "many games" for the Switch and added that the company intends to "continue developing hardware to pursue unique entertainment offerings", without providing additional details.
