Nintendo Switch Online Getting Two New NES Games & Rewind Feature

Nintendo Switch Online will be getting two new NES games added to the system, as well as a special rewind feature for those wishing for a re-do. First off, the two games you’ll be getting are the original Wrecking Crew, as well as the rarely mentioned Donkey Kong 3. DK3 is, to be blunt, the forgotten Donkey Kong game as most people focus on the original and DK Junior, and tend to forget this release from 1986. Meanwhile, speaking of forgotten Nintendo games, Wrecking Crew is a Mario Bros. game that thends to not get brought up much as you change Mario and Luigi from plumbers into construction workers tearing down buildings. Finally, the new Rewind feature will be added in the next update, allowing you to fix a mistake by hitting LZ + RZ together. All of this will be added on July 17th. Enjoy the descriptions and videos below of all the new stuff coming next week.

  • Donkey Kong 3 – Based on the third game in the enormously popular arcade series, Donkey Kong 3 introduces an exterminator named Stanley as he desperately tries to protect the flowers in his greenhouse from Donkey Kong. Armed only with a can of bug spray, Stanley must force Donkey Kong higher and higher into the greenhouse rafters until Donkey Kong is off the screen and the next stage is reached.

  • Wrecking Crew – In the days before Mario and Luigi became sports stars in their downtime from saving the princess, they tried their hands as one-man wrecking crews. With a hammer as their only tool, take control of the brothers and set out to destroy ladders, rip out pipes, knock out walls and detonate explosive devices. But make sure to plan your path of destruction carefully, as each building is designed as its own clever puzzle.
