Three new familiar SNES titles make it to the SNES app
Nintendo, the company that brought a lot of the famous “classic” consoles and games, has recently announced that they will be adding three new games to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (more commonly known as SNES or Super NES).
These games are, namely, Claymates, Jelly Boy, and Bombuzal.
These three new games will be available in the SNES app this coming July 28, but only to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.
The New SNES Games
Claymates is a single-player platformer game finding its roots from the ClayFighter series. It was released in November 1993 for the PAL region and 1994 for the North America region.
Clayton, the protagonist and the character the player plays as, is on a quest to rescue his father. However, there is a catch: he is no longer in human form. Despite this, Clayton accepts his fate and vows to rescue his father and the serum that began it all.
Players need to use all the skills they have to navigate his backyard and all the way to the outer reaches of space.
Jelly Boy is a single-player platformer game which used to be exclusive for Europe in 1995.
The story starts as the main character, Jelly Boy, a piece of candy, is suddenly given life and is somehow led to believe one thing: it must escape the candy factory.
Driven by this thought, Jelly Boy navigates the factory all the while collecting puzzle pieces and surviving the onslaught of enemies that stand in its way.
Bombuzal is a single-player puzzle game released in 1990 for the SNES.
In this game, the player is tasked to do one thing: explode all bombs in the level without getting caught in the explosion.
As simple as it may seem, Bombuzal has 130 levels all with increasing levels of difficulty. Levels start with simple movements but eventually introduces different kinds of level-altering devices such as teleporters that might make even the most seasoned of puzzle gamers scratch their heads.
Nintendo Switch Online
Grabbing the Nintendo Switch Online subscription for these new Super NES titles is all well and good, but the service has so much more to offer than just that.
For instance, players get to play Multiplayer with select games over the internet—very useful especially nowadays since physical meet-ups are rare and discouraged.
One of these games includes a twist to one of the brand’s most iconic games: a battle royale PAC-MAN called PAC-MAN™ 99. Instead of a lone PAC-MAN wandering a maze and running away from ghosts, players are instead placed against each other to see who the last PAC-MAN will be standing, or in this case, last one munching.
The three new games will be available on the Super NES app this coming July 28, so to anticipate this launch, go grab a Nintendo Switch or a Nintendo Switch Lite if the budget is a bit tight!
