Nintendo is about to make its online subscription service a whole lot meatier, because this week will mark the debut of Super Nintendo Entertainment System titles for Nintendo Switch Online.

Tomorrow, September 5, will see the release of 20 classic titles from the 16-bit era, according to today’s Nintendo Direct. These games will be joining the dozens of 8-bit NES titles that currently make up the Switch’s subscriber-exclusive retro library. Their addition is something fans have been demanding to see on the Switch ever since the console first came out.

Nintendo Switch Online service premium version

While not 100% the same, this lines up pretty closely with the list of Nintendo Switch Online-bound SNES games dataminers discovered earlier this year. All in all, it is an impressive selection and packed to the brim with several of the most fondly-remembered and critically-acclaimed games of all time, like Super Mario World, Super Metroid, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Plus there’ll be quite a few obscure titles, like Stunt Race FX, that will be available again for the first time since the 16-bit days.

Aside from the games themselves, the new SNES library will benefit from the features that come with Nintendo Switch Online’s NES service. The ability to rewind games whenever will be available at launch tomorrow, as will online multiplayer for select titles.

On a related note, word came out recently that Nintendo was working on a SNES controller for the Switch, as evidenced by a Federal Communications Commission listing for such a device. That controller has just been confirmed to be real, and is now available to purchase directly from Nintendo for $29.99.
