After Nintendo also confirmed classic games from the previous SEGA Genesis for Switch Online in autumn, the next new additions will be available shortly before Christmas.
Shortly before the start of the well-deserved Christmas break, Nintendo made five more titles available as part of the Switch Online Expansion Pack. Those who use the most expensive variant of the online service can look forward to Mega-Drive- aka SEGA-Genesis classics on the current Nintendo console.
The first new title is the arcade-heavy side scroller Altered Beast, which is accompanied by the well-known alien adventure Toejam & Early. The Shoote’Em-Up Thunder Force II, the action platformer Dynamite Headdy and the action role-playing game Sword of Vermillion from 1989 are also represented.
The five new additions expand the circle of 14 other Mega-Drive classics that were already available through the service. The expansion pack for Switch Online was launched in October with Streegs of Rage 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 2, among others.
As part of the N64 collection, Nintendo had last added Paper Mario; next month the original version of Rares Banjo-Kazooie will follow on this front.
