Since Nintendo first announced the Switch, fans have clamored for some version of the insanely popular Virtual Console to come to the system. The Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online service provided at least a selection of NES games as part of the subscription, but fans understandably want more. Well, they may be getting it! Twitter user KapuccinoHeck recently tweeted that they had found references to numerous Super NES games in the NES Online files. The SNES games referenced include Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World, Super Metroid, and most importantly to Legend of Zelda fans, A Link to the Past! Keep in mind that nothing has been confirmed, but for fans of these classic SNES games, it is hard to not get excited about playing these games on the Switch one day!
You can see KapuccinoHeck’s tweet below, or head over to Twitter to read the whole thread.
I was finally able to look around NES Online's strings a bit myself and noticed the sheer amount of SNES games planned.
Here's a list for you folks out there:#NintendoSwitch
