Yesterday may well have introduced a few more NES games to play on your Switch, but it appears that they might not have been the only things added to the Nintendo Switch Online service in the update.
Just a few days ago, datamining efforts uncovered a total of 22 SNES games listed in the NES online app’s code, and further digging also discovered the possibility of new emulator types being added to the service at a future date. Now, after yesterday’s update and even more datamining efforts, it has been claimed that the SNES games are not only still perfectly intact, but have also been updated to include full descriptions in various languages.
A couple of these descriptions have been shared by Twitter user @OtherEhm and, as you can see, the descriptions look similar to those featured for each game in the NES library. Interestingly, @OtherEhm states that Super Mario World is the only game to have received an English translation so far, while a variety of different languages can be seen across other titles.
If true, these new finds would suggest that the service is slowly but surely coming together on Nintendo’s end, potentially launching much sooner than anyone would have anticipated. Of course, none of this is official yet, however, and it’s impossible to know for sure whether or not a SNES collection is on the way. It certainly feels like something’s coming, but make sure to wait for an official confirmation from Nintendo before getting too excited.
We’ll be sure to update you if that magical moment does indeed happen but, until then, let us know what you think in the comments below. Is it only a matter of time? Or do you think it’ll never happen?
