20 SNES Games Coming to Nintendo Switch Online

Today's Nintendo Direct confirms SNES games are coming to Nintendo Switch Online, with exclusive SNES controllers for subscribers.

Nintendo will (finally) be adding Super Nintendo games to Nintendo Switch Online’s library of free games. It’s a move many expected, as we recently reported on.
