Nintendo Entertainment System – May Game Updates – Nintendo Switch Online

On May 15, classics Donkey Kong Jr.™, VS. Excitebike™, and Clu Clu Land™ join dozens of other NES games as part of the Nintendo Entertainment System™ – Nintendo Switch Online collection.

Donkey Kong Jr.™
Based on the popular arcade game, Donkey Kong Jr. is the sequel to the immensely successful Donkey Kong™. Play as Donkey Kong’s son, and rescue your dad who has been kidnapped and imprisoned in a cage by Mario. Use your jumping and climbing abilities to clamber up vines and chains, gather vital fruit and keys, and open the cage to free your father. Make sure you avoid the pesky birds, nasty electric sparks, and creepy chompers! Four different worlds filled with numerous climbing and jumping puzzles await you in this timeless classic.

VS. Excitebike™
Fans love the Excitebike™ game for its frenetic races, high stakes, and sweet jumps. With this game, you can take it to the next level with the Famicom™ disk version of VS. Excitebike— complete with 2 player split screen! Create tracks from 20 classic Excitebike track parts, and go for a best time or take on friends. Racing is even more exciting when the rivalries are real. Think you really know Excitebike? Try out the enhanced single-player mode in VS. Excitebike. It adds tracks, music, and the ability to save your high score! Find out if you have what it takes to beat the best in the ultimate version of Excitebike.

Clu Clu Land™
The greedy Sea Urchins have stolen all of Clu Clu Land’s gold bars and buried them in a series of mazes. As Bubbles, a brave bubble fish, you’ll set out to uncover all of the gold bars in each maze. But you’ll have to be careful: Sea Urchins will pursue Bubbles relentlessly, and there are also dangerous black holes that must be avoided. Bubbles isn’t defenseless, though, as she has the ability to stun Sea Urchins with sound waves and quickly change direction using posts scattered throughout the stages. Not only that but the locations of the gold bars in each maze form the outline of another object—so once you know the object, you’re well on your way to finding the gold! With 20 stages to complete and increasingly complex conditions (like having to pass over the gold bars twice to uncover them), you might just want to bring along a friend for help.

  1. I see SNES, Earthbound Beginnings, and Clu Clu being a literal who as topics in the comments.

  2. Kid Dracula kun, Little samson, bucky o hare, ducktales, give us games that good…

  3. How about bringing more GameCube?

  4. Never seen this many people want Earthbound

  5. Please give us SNES games like Super Mario World! SNES was a really great era for retro games and I’m sure every old-school Nintendo fan would be excited to see it come to the switch.


    Can we get SNES game’s…i’d rather play Kirby Super Star ultra, also add N64 ONLINE…

  7. Supermariojjk K

    50% can we get earthbound beginnings?
    50% can we get SNES games?

  8. Comment section:
    69%: give us earthbound beginnings
    30%: SNES games, c’mon!
    1: these comments

  9. Alright look.
    I haven’t complained once about the online service.
    But could you really not translate the original Fire Emblem for us? Like yeah, it’s dialogue heavy, but it would be an actual reason to go on the NES Online

  10. *Reads comments section*
    “Here we go!”

  11. [Sees likes/dislikes ratio]

    Looks like things are back to… normal?

  12. At this rate, we should get Super Mario World and F-Zero in the September 2048 update

  13. FIX ONLINE #FIXONLINE its 2019 I could message on a psvita though

  14. Huge Nintendo fan, but my PS4 just gave me overcooked and Edith Finch yesterday for PS Plus. This is weak, Nintendo.

  15. This feels more like an April Fools joke than their actual April Fools joke this year.

  16. Ghost in The shell

    Still the worst online service ever.

    The friends list does nothing.
    I cant message them
    I cant invite them to anything
    We can’t voice chat.

    It literally does nothing.

  17. Blazing Victory

    literally the only NES game I want to play is Earthbound Beginnings. this service launched more than half a year ago and I am even closer to deciding to buy a Wii U or 2ds xl to play retro games I actually want.

  18. Zachary Jorgensen


  19. I really want some SNES games to be added =)

    Super Mario World 1-2, Donkey Kong Country 1-2-3, Zelda – Link to the Past.

    Please! At least one of them.

  20. >gets more dislikes than likes everytime
    >nintendo still doesn’t get it

    Man, I miss the virtual console the wii u had. But Nintendo killed that so they can sell us the mini series of overpriced emulators.
