Two classic retro titles and a handy new feature.
The Nintendo Switch online service gets a few more retro classics this month in the continued support for the system. While the release of games have been a slow drip with two games a month (sometimes three, depending on your region), they have been steady. Along with those games comes a nifty new feature that players are sure to have a lot of fun with in a rewind mode.
First, we go way back with the two games for July. They are Donkey Kong 3, the third game in the popular arcade series where Mario is replaced by Stanley as he tries to protect his greenhouse from Donkey Kong’s rampage, and Wrecking Crew, a title from back before the Mario Bros. were a household name and got their work for destroying buildings.
But the most interesting this is that alongside them will come the rewind feature. It will allow you to hold the ZL and ZR buttons and rewind any NES title in the service. It should make some of the more challenging bits of older school games a little more manageable. It, along with Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew, will go live on the online service July 17th.
