Nintendo has added four new games to its Nintendo Switch Online service. Two of these games are new to people outside of Japan. One special game is the Super Famicom version of “Kirby’s Star Stacker”. Before, only the Game Boy version was available outside of Japan.
The older NES game section gets two games from Japan: “Joy Mech Fight” and “Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day”. There’s also a new Game Boy Color game, “Quest for Camelot”. “Kirby’s Star Stacker” is a game where you drop blocks. It first came out on the Game Boy in 1997. A different version came out in Japan in 1998, but it’s now available for everyone.
“Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day” is a fun sports game. It’s related to an older game called “River City Ransom”. It was added to a game collection a while back. “Joy Mech Fight” is a fighting game made by Nintendo and it’s new to the outside world.
“Quest for Camelot” is an adventure game based on a movie. It’s special because there aren’t many movie games on this service.
Starting today, people with Nintendo Switch Online can play some old-school games on the NES, SNES, and Game Boy apps. The new games are Kirby’s Star Stacker on the SNES, Joy Mech Fight, and Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day! on the NES, and Quest for Camelot on the Game Boy Color. Three of these games are from other countries and haven’t been available in North America before. Plus, Quest for Camelot is based on a 1998 Warner Bros. cartoon movie!
In the Tweet below, you can see a trailer for the games:

Quest for Camelot
Quest for Camelot could be one of the most unexpected games to be added to Nintendo Switch Online. Quest for Camelot is the first approved game we’ve seen on Nintendo Switch Online. The game itself isn’t very interesting. Most of the apps on the service were made by Nintendo, but there were also a few third-party games like Alone in the Dark, Breath of Fire II, and Ninja Gaiden.
The arrival of Quest for Camelot could make room for other licensed games, like Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose! or X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse, which are both well-known and liked. Subscribers will have to wait and see, but Nintendo could try out a lot of great ideas in the future!
Joy Mech Fight
Like Kirby’s Star Stacker, Joy Mech Fight didn’t have a translated version because it came out late. Joy Mech Fight is a 2D fighting game for the Famicom that came out in 1993. It has a huge number of possible characters. There are 36 robots to choose from, and they all have arms that don’t connect to the rest of the body.
This is similar to the Sega Genesis game Vectorman. Joy Mech Fight seems to be getting the most attention from Nintendo Switch Online users on social media out of all the games that came out today. We hope that the thirty-year wait will be worth it.

Kirby’s Star Stacker
Kirby is one of Nintendo’s most popular series, but the SNES version of Kirby’s Star Stacker has never come out in North America. Kirby’s Star Stacker was a game for the Game Boy that came out in 1997. In 1998, it was remade for the Super Famicom in Japan.
By that time, the Nintendo 64 had been out for more than two years, which may have been a factor in why Nintendo didn’t adapt Kirby’s Star Stacker. In Japan, the game did come out on the Wii Virtual Console, but fans in North America were once again left out. Nintendo has fixed the problem, so now NSO members can play the game for themselves.
