Last month’s retro offerings on modern consoles was a case of quality over quantity. This month, for the Switch, it is very much about the quantity, although there are definitely some excellent games in the bunch.

The reason for the abundance of retro games is thanks to the launch of Nintendo Switch Online later this month. A membership to the service will be required to play certain Switch games online going forward, and it will also come with 20 free NES games that you can play right off the bat, with more added regularly. So far, we know of 10 of the free games, which will include some timeless classics, such as Super Mario Bros. 3 and The Legend of Zelda. There’s a chance that we may find out the identity of the remaining 10 games in the upcoming Nintendo Direct.

September will also see the release of the Sega Ages lineup, which will bring some of Sega’s best retro games to the Nintendo Switch. The Sega Ages lineup is currently set to include 15 Master System and Genesis games and will start this month with the speedy platformer Sonic the Hedgehog and shoot ’em up Thunder Force IV.
