Every free NES game added to Nintendo Switch Online in July 2019


You can press the buttons to rewind the gameplay and have another go.

First up is 1985's puzzle-action game Wrecking Crew.

Wrecking Crew: This is another game where Mario and Luigi were moonlighting, as these plumbers continue to have more jobs than Homer Simpson.

The second Nintendo Switch Online NES game in July is Donkey Kong 3. This makes it easy for players to retrieve save data if they lose their system or start using a new one. Instead, you play as an exterminator called Stanley. Donkey Kong is encroaching on your greenhouse and destroying your flowers. With only a can of bug spray, you'll need to fend off the titular ape until he's out of sight. Although I must say, personally I do enjoy a good game of Wrecking Crew.

With every new month comes a new pair of NES titles to be added for subscribers to the Nintendo Switch Online service. It did not seem all that likely, but it stings nonetheless, especially as we've once again dropped down from three to just two new additions for the month of July. Whatever game you're playing will rewind itself and you'll be back where you were earlier.

Are you glad to see Rewind as a feature?

Since its debut past year, Nintendo Switch Online has steadily built up an audience of Switch owners looking to take their gaming experiences online with friends. This will bring the library to a full 46 games.

As a reminder, players won't automatically become Nintendo Switch Online members when the service starts, so they will need to purchase an Individual or Family Membership to avoid disruption of their online play in compatible games.
