Two More Games Joining Nintendo Switch Online This Month


Nintendo Switch Online’s library of games you should have picked up at that garage sale that one time continues to grow with 2 more additions this month, as is tradition.

Nintendo Switch Online Kid Icarus

Both hitting the service on March 13th, Kid Icarus and StarTropics will swoop in to steal your free time, and you can check out Nintendo’s lowdowns on each of the new additions here:

  • Kid Icarus – The evil goddess Medusa has stolen the Three Sacred Treasures and imprisoned the goddess of light, Palutena, in her evil plot to control all. Play as Pit, a young angel who has been entrusted with a magical bow and arrow. Fight against hordes of enemies that swoop from above and below. Secure the Three Sacred Treasures from their evil guardians, equip them and face Medusa in the final battle.
  • StarTropics – Step into the shoes of Mike Jones, a teenage star pitcher from Seattle, who has come to the tropics to visit his famous archaeologist uncle, Dr. Jones. After being told that his uncle has been abducted, Mike begins a perilous quest in order to rescue him and figure out the mysterious plot behind his disappearance. Luckily for Mike, he meets helpful villagers and finds more powerful weapons as he explores numerous locations and island hops using his uncle’s submarine.

In the same update, Nintendo reminds players that they can win a whopping $10 worth of the company’s My Nintendo Gold Points by being really really good at Tetris this weekend. Anyone who has downloaded Tetris 99 can participate in the MAXIMUS CUP (I don’t know why they’re yelling) online event from 5am PT/8am ET on March 8th, to 11:59pm PT/2:59am ET on March 10th. During the event, give up your commitment to failure and try to come in first as many times as you can, and at the end of the event the top 999 players will be rewarded with 999 fake money.

If you’re a Kid Icarus main in Smash who thinks they can speed-run the character’s original adventure, let us know in the comments!
