The four new games have been added to the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service.

They all belong to the lower subscription tier and do not require an expansion pack to play them.

First, we have Kirby’s Star Stacker, which was originally released on the Game Boy but got a remake for the SNES in Japan.

It’s the first time this remake will be released in the west and features notable improvements over the original game.

Star Stacker is a puzzle game about collecting stars from falling blocks by matching Kirby’s friends Rick, Coo and Kine.

Next is Joy Mech Fight, another Japanese game appearing in the West for the first time.

One of the last games released for the NES, Joy Mech Fight, a 2D fighting game with a single player story mode and local multiplayer battles.

The third game in this series of new additions will be a household name for many players of a certain age.

Following the story of River City Ransom: Super Awesome Field Day! is a spin-off game for the NES that also never made it to the West.

Up to four players can compete locally in various track and field events with the characters from the River City series.

The latest addition is the only one that originally made it to the West.

Quest for Camelot is a Game Boy based on the 1998 Warner Bros. film of the same name.

This is a 2D RPG with over 60 levels to play through.

All four of these games are now available on Nintendo Switch and can be played through their respective apps.

If you subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online, you can download the console app from the eShop and play the game you want from there.
