It’s that time of month when we check to see what’s new on the NES Online app. We knew we’d be getting Punch-Out!!, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, and Star Soldier — but there’s one more that snuck in the mix. Nintendo’s had a trend of SP versions sneaking their way in by surprise, and this go-around’s no different, with those three being accompanied by…

Kid Icarus SP! This special version of the game drops you right into Pit being equipped with the Three (Sacred) Treasures, with 999 hearts loaded up. This free-flying final stage is different than the bulk of the game and leads all the way to the final fight with Medusa. If you want a little break between trying those Lost Levels or trying to punch your way through to Mr. Dream, give it a try.
