Nintendo adds four more free classic games to the Switch – here’s how to grab them


NINTENDO has added four more games that are free to play on the Switch.

All four games are available right now, and anyone can grab them to play.

The four games available now.

They are all coming to the Mega Drive collection which is part of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service.

This is Nintendo’s more expensive subscription service and includes added extras such as classic games from the Mega Drive, Game Boy Advance and N64 library.

It also allows players to have free access to DLC for Nintendo’s most popular games, such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing.

The first game being added to the Mega Drive library is the iconic Ghouls ‘N Ghosts.

This is a 2D platformer that is renowned for its difficulty, and made up a large part of many people’s childhoods.

Next up is Landstalker, a game which is considered one of the best action adventure games of the early ‘90s.

WIth its isometric view, Landstalker pushed the Mega Drive to its limits to supply its gorgeous scenery.

Crusader of Centy – also known as Soleil – is also coming to Nintendo’s Mega Drive library.

Often compared to the Zelda games of the SNES, you explore the world, fight battles and solve puzzles.

The final game being added to the library is The Revenge of Shinobi, another game well known for its difficulty.

This is the second game in the Shinobi series, it’s a 2D platformer that uses special ninja powers.

All of these games are available now for those who are subscribed to the Switch Online service.

If you already have a subscription, you can play these four games by going to the Online Store via your Switch.

Download the Mega Drive app, and once it’s installed, you will be able to select these games to play via the app.
