Nintendo’s online subscription service for $ 20 a year is getting better with the addition of something better on May 26th Caveman Ninja, Magical Drop 2, Super Baseball Simulator 1,000, Spanky’s Quest and Ninja JaJaMaru-Kun, The total number of playable old games rises to 104. What are you looking forward to the most and why?
I’m probably looking forward to it the most Magic drop 2, the gem-matching sequel to the Super Famicom puzzle game that never made it to the US. That and maybe Caveman ninja, also known as Joe & Mac or, “T.I always confuse the game with Bonk. “
I couldn’t tell you much about it Spanky’s search, the Super Nintendo game that appears to be a monkey with some kind of superball that helps him fight the evil witch Morticia.
Super baseball simulator 1,000 seems to have too many zeros but otherwise looks fine. I wonder about a baseball sim with moves like the phantom ball disappearing in the middle of the field, but what do I know about baseball?
That brings us to the only NES game on the list Ninja JaYesMaru-kun. It’s about a ninja rescuing a princess and possibly riding a giant frog. It was a Japanese exclusive, hence the funny name.
So they aren’t the most exciting additions. They are definitely additions, and while I was hoping for something beyond the normal fluff to mark the service’s 100 game milestone, I also thought it wasn’t going to happen, and here we are.
