We’ve known half of the Switch Online Service NES lineup for a while now, and likewise that various games would receive new features. I got most excited for online Dr. Mario, but according to Nintendo of Europe, it sounds like Nintendo’s bringing online to more than just head-to-head titles.


Super Mario Bros. 3, aka one of the greatest games ever (and where Mario discovered the joys of being a raccoon), will also have some kind of online compatibility. Whether this will translate to a back and forth two player mode, leaderboards, or something more has yet to be stated, but it’s good to know that we can expect a little something new in most of these classics.

Look forward to more info as we come closer and closer to the Switch Online Service release next month.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
