Two More NES Games Hit Nintendo Switch Online Next Week

Nintendo Switch Online launched with a digital library of classic NES games for all of its subscribers to enjoy. This NES library debuted with 20 games, but Nintendo has been steadily adding around three new games per month, and sometimes they include a bonus “SP” version of a game that gives the player some sort of special advantage.

That lineup is about to get a little bigger once again, as February’s games have just been announced. Starting on February 13th, Nintendo Switch Online users will have access to Kirby’s Adventure and Super Mario Bros. 2. The latter is the Americanized version of the Japanese game Doki Doki Panic. It was brought to America as a Mario game in lieu of Japan’s true Super Mario Bros. 2, which we now know as The Lost Levels. You can check out Nintendo’s official description and a pair of trailers below.

Kirby’s Adventure – Using 20 unique tricks and Kirby’s ability to steal enemies’ powers by swallowing them, you’ll have to make your way through a horrific land filled with all kinds of nightmares. Recover the broken pieces of the Star Rod, and everyone in Dream Land will sleep peacefully once again. If you fail, the citizens of Dream Land will be subjected to a lifetime of terrible nightmares.

Super Mario Bros. 2 – Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad embark on a quest together to save the day against the villainous Wart. Pick up items and throw them at your adversaries to clear levels in seven fantastical worlds. Even enemies can be picked up and tossed across the screen. This unique installment in the Super Mario Bros. series will keep you coming back for more.

Someone has Recreated the First Level of Super Mario Bros. 2 in Super Mario Maker

Super Mario Maker has only been out for a few days, and people have already gotten to work creating levels inspired by various franchises, from Super Meat Boy to The Legend of Zelda. One player has stayed a little closer to the game’s roots by recreating the first level of Super Mario Bros. 2. While many of the unique elements of Super Mario Bros. 2 are notably absent from Super Mario Maker, the creator, Darig0n, does a pretty good job of approximating the beginning of one of the most unique Mario platformers, even if it’s one that didn’t begin as a Mario game.

You can check out a video showcasing the level above.

Game Clash: Super Mario Bros. 2 vs. Zelda II: Adventure of Link

We’re back with another weekly installment of Gamnesia’s Game Clash! Every Monday we pit two video games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes! This week’s clash is between two sequels that strayed from the style of their predecessors. Super Mario Bros. 2, although still a sidescroller, felt like a completely different game than the original, and that’s because it was! A Japanese game called Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic was re-branded with Mario characters and released as the sequel to the intensely popular first Super Mario Bros. game. Zelda II: Adventure of Link also strayed from its roots, taking the Zelda series from a top-down action-adventure style to a more RPG-oriented sidescroller. Which one of these game-changing sequels do you prefer? Cast your vote and join in the debate!

Did You Know Gaming – Super Mario Part 4

The folks at Did You Know Gaming are at it again with their trivia coverage of the Super Mario series. This time, the topic of trivia ranges from the Mario Kart series to an interesting take on how the American Super Mario Bros. 2 may really be the intended, ‘real’ version of the game, rather than just a port of the seemingly unrelated Doki Doki Panic. It’s an interesting theory. You can see the video above!
