It’s been a little over three months since Nintendo last added a fresh batch of NES and SNES titles to its Switch Online retro games catalogue, but its sporadic updates will finally resume next Wednesday, 19th February, with the arrival of four new games.
There are two new additions on the NES front, the first being the rather self-explanatory Eliminator Boat Duel, which originally launched in Europe back in 1993. It’s a predominantly top-down powerboat racing affair, pitting challengers against a variety of successive AI opponent across 24 courses in single-player mode, or against a fellow human if you prefer.
NES game number two, meanwhile, is developer Natsume’s side-scrolling action-platformer Shadow of the Ninja, which originally came to Europe in 1991. Here, two ninjas (its playable solo or with a friend) time-travel their way to the New York City of the future in a bid to assassinate a megalomaniac ruler and destroy his empire.
