A Heap Of Classic Rare Games Are Available Today On Nintendo Switch Online

Blast Corps!!

Nintendo dropped a shiny new Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase this morning, giving us a look at some upcoming third-party and partnered games for the Switch, including some surprise (and surprise-ish) reveals.

One very cool inclusion among all of the reveals was the announcement of no less than five classic Rare (or rather, Rareware) titles available today across the various retro platforms within the Nintendo Switch Online ecosystem.

Coming to subscribers on the base Nintendo Switch Online tier are RC Pro-AM and Snake Rattle ‘n’ Roll for the NES as well as Battletoads in Battlemaniacs and Killer Instinct for the SNES, while those on the higher-tier Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack tier are also able to play the N64’s Blast Corps.
