    We'll only one i like is smash tennis. But that's nostalgia. At this point I would rather pay indidually for snes game. We all know Nintendo gets this games from Rom sites. How hard is it to download 20 and place 20 games a month?

    Puyo Puyo 2 doesn't feel right at all and doesn't have the SNES logo since where is Super Famicom app on the US & Europe Nintendo Switch anyway if it has to be on the Japanese Nintendo, why not US & Europe on their Nintendo Switch?

    I feel like Nintendo can go Bubsy themselves. What could possibly go wrong. :3

  • Reply Ya boi BR February 19, 2020 at 1:01 pm

    That’s it really, you guys at Nintendo couldn’t give us one of your many great games on the snes and nes at all? Donkey Kong country, or Earthbound, or even MARIO RPG, but seriously you had all that time and you give us games no one is gonna play nor look at, I’m pretty sure a majority of us don’t know those games, please just give us some worth out of buying Nintendo online because I know for a fact you guys aren’t trying to fix the servers, I know because smash bros and super Mario maker still has major lag issues, not because everyone has bad wifi, but if one person has bad WiFi, everyone in the game has to suffer

    I wouldn’t skip a beat to pay more for access to N64 games. The wait is what kills me! Giving people a way to play the first installments in a series is a great way to rope in new fans. So why are they going so slow?

  • Reply oliver lewis February 20, 2020 at 6:05 am

    why do they keep putting in games that most people play for less than 30 mins. It's not like there isn't more good nes and snes games and they certainly could put like 10 at a time if they wanted to because of how small those games are. At this point, why don't Nintendo just move on and make the Gameboy, Gameboy color, Gameboy advance, N64, and Gamecube online because most people clearly aren't happy with this.
