3 Mega Drive games added to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack

3 Mega Drive games added to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack

The members of Nintendo Switch Online having subscribed to the most complete formula will be able to try out three games Mega Drive additional. As of today, the service thus offers Alien Soldier, Light Crusader and Super Fantasy Zone.

Last October, Nintendo took the risk of modifying the online service of its Switch. Nothing really changed for subscribers to Nintendo Switch Online, but it was however enriched by an “Additional Pack” bringing together exclusive content for Animal Crossing: New Horizons and a handful of N64 and Mega Drive titles. Subsequently, it was announced that the members of this formula would be able to practice, and at no additional cost, the new circuits of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Regarding the Mega Drive offer, it was ultimately modeled on what was already in effect for the NES and the Super Nintendo, namely a catalog of titles accessible during the subscription period and which was going to be increasingly filled with the time. Users also had the option of playing certain titles online.

The Switch welcomes Alien Soldier, Light Crusader and Super Fantasy Zone in its Online Additional Pack

When the Mega Drive appeared in the Nintendo Switch Online add-on pack, here are the titles, fourteen in total, that were offered (and still are):

  • Golden Ax
  • Strider
  • Musha
  • ShiningForce
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 2
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Ecco The Dolphin
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Phantasy Star IV
  • Castlevania: The Next Generation
  • Contra Hard Corps
  • Ristar

Last December, an update added five titles to the list:

  • Thunder Force II
  • Toe Jam & Earl
  • Sword of Vermilion
  • Headdy Dynamite
  • Altered Beast

And it is therefore on this Thursday, March 17, 2022 that three new games make their appearance in this offer:

  • Super Fantasy Zone
  • Light Crusader
  • Alien Soldier

Once again, the (very) solid rubs shoulders with the most dispensable. It will be noted that Super Fantasy Zone and Light Crusaderlike others before them, are included in the MegaDrive Mini. Alien Soldier can notably be purchased for 0.99 euros on Steam, just like Light Crusader in passing.
