Later this month, Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will be able to play two new NES games through the Nintendo Entertainment System library. Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew are to be added to the growing collection of classic games.
Below are official descriptions of each game from Nintendo:
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, players 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—if you’re not careful, you can easily trap yourself in a dead end!
Also included in the update is a new rewind feature that will allow players to go back in time. By pressing down ZL + RL, players will be able to go back to previous frames and continue playing. This feature will come in handy for those unfair deaths or easily missed upgrades.
Both games, including the rewind feature, will be available on July 17, 2019.
