Nintendo Switch Online adding two new NES games, Rewind feature
From July 17th, Nintendo Switch owners will be able to rewind NES games with a simple button combination thanks to the new Rewind feature.
This new feature is activated by pressing ZL + ZR and opens up a timeline that players can scan through to select where they would like to resume gameplay from. Take a look at it in action in the trailer below:
In addition to the Rewind feature, two new NES games are being added to Nintendo Switch Online’s library on the same day: Wrecking Crew and Donkey Kong 3. Wrecking Crew arms Mario and Luigi with hammers and tasks them with destroying ladders, pipes, walls, and more to complete levels. While Donkey Kong 3 puts players in control of an exterminator called Stanley who is trying to protect his flowers from Donkey Kong.
These two new games join Metroid, Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Dr. Mario, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and more in the library.
A Nintendo Switch Online subscription grants access to the NES library, online multiplayer, cloud saves, a smartphone app, and Tetris 99.
