There are 2 NES additions for Nintendo Switch Online members in August – but you’ve probably never heard of them

Two more classic Nintendo Entertainment System games are coming to the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service Aug. 21: Kung-Fu Heroes and Vice: Project Doom.

According to GameSpot, Vice hasn’t been ported to any console other than the NES since its 1991 original release, making it a true rarity. I vaguely remember seeing both games’ cover artwork in old gaming magazines, but never played them that I can recall.

At this point, I think it’s fair to say the bottom of the barrel is being scraped. What will be next to entice Switch Online subscribers? Although there’s something to be said for both nostalgia’s sake and resurfacing lost gems that can be experienced by fresh eyes, this perk seems to have run its course.

You can try the Nintendo Switch Online service free for a week. One month costs $3.99, three months cost $7.99 and a year costs $19.99 — but the best value is a family plan that costs $34.99 a year and accommodates eight people with free Nintendo Accounts. If you want to play Switch game online (Splatoon 2Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, etc.), you’ll need to sign on with this service anyway.
