Nintendo Switch Online Expands NES and SNES Libraries with Earthworm Jim 2, DIG DUG 2, and MAPPLY-LAND

In Japan, however, Earthworm Jim 2 is replaced by the original Harvest Moon, though DIG DUG 2 and MAPPY-LAND are common across all regions.

Nintendo Switch Online’s N64 catalog has been adding new games on a significant bases, with the likes of F-Zero X, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Paper Marioand Banjo-Kazooie, while the service’s Genesis library has also brought new games into the fold. The NES and SNES libraries that come with the service’s base tier, however, have largely remained stagnant for quite some time.

Out of nowhere though, Nintendo has added three new games to Nintendo Switch Online’s NES and SNES library- and these are all deep cuts (for the most part). Two new NES games have been added with DIG DUG 2 and MAPPY-LAND, while the SNES catalog is bolstered by the addition of Earthworm Jim 2. In Japan, while the NES offerings are the same, Earthworm Jim 2 is replaced by the original Harvest Moon– which many might argue is the better of the two options.

Earlier this year, Nintendo added EarthBound and EarthBound Beginnings to the NES and SNES library of Nintendo Switch Online, but the update before that was back in July of last year. Hopefully we’re not in for another similar gap before the next batch of games is added to the service.
