The Nintendo Direct today had a lot of great news if you love your Switch as much as I do. To me, the biggest news is that Nintendo Online is getting Super Nintendo games. The Super Nintendo is coming to the Switch tomorrow and launching with 20 games, which is as many as the Super Nintendo Classic included. Some incredible Super Nintendo Classic games are part of Super Nintendo Online but Nintendo is bringing 11 games that didn't make it the Classic to Super Nintendo Online and I've broken up the twenty games below:

Games coming to Super Nintendo Online included in the SNES Classic: Super Mario Kart, Kirby’s Dream Course, Super Mario World, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, F-Zero, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Star Fox, Super Metroid & Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts.

Games coming to Super Nintendo Online NOT included in the SNES Classic: Stunt Race FX, Kirby’s Dream Land 3, Pilotwings, Super Soccer, Super Tennis, Brawl Brothers, Demon’s Crest, Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics, Super E.D.F. Earth Defense Force, Super Puyo Puyo 2 & Breath of Fire!

On top of the 20 games coming to Super Nintendo Online Nintendo is also selling a wireless Super Nintendo controller so you can play your games because... we all need a new $30 controller.

Some other big news drops is that Overwatch is coming to Switch on October 15th and the Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is coming in 2020. Divinity: Original Sin 2: Definitive Edition is available on Switch today which gets save game cross play with Steam games making this really appealing to Divinity fans that want to play on the go. Bethesda is porting Doom 64 to the Switch on November 22 which might be one of the best ways to play this game as it's not the cheapest game to buy on the 64. Tetris 99 is getting a bunch of all new game modes and Nintendo showed quite a bit from an all new Animal Crossing game.

What was the best part of the Nintendo Direct for you?

The big thing for me was the Jedi Outcast reveal. I had no idea that was coming to current gen with new controls.

I have Divnity: Original Sin 2 and most of the related games (I think I'm missing only one of them). I tried out the ones that came out before this one and only the one before it feel like it was worth playing, the others show their age. While I haven't played DOS2, I really believe that's it's a good game. I'm looking forward to playing it. It's on my "to play list" and I'll play it after I finish DOS. I did play a bit of DOS and I was impressed. The game/s is/are highly rated. I must admit, I'm quite impressed with how many games are coming to the Switch and the ones already on it, like CivVI, The Witcher 3, Ark: Survival Evolved, Skyrim, Terraria, Minecraft, etc. It definitely seems to have become Nintendo's go-to platform. I'm not really familiar with what people are saying about the Switch, but seeing as it's getting all these games, I imagine it's being received well. As I mentioned (to Jon & Travis), I'll have one soon (the new one w/ extended battery life and not the Lite).

Stunt Race FX! Oh man, I totally forgot about that game. Definitely going to have to relive that one.

If you like turn based RPG's, then Divinity Original Sin 1 and 2 are absolutely must plays. Especially if you can grab a buddy and play co-op.
