NES Open Tournament Golf and Two Other NES Games Hit Nintendo Switch Online Next Week


Nintendo announced three more NES games will be coming to the Nintendo Switch via its new Online Service next week on October 10.

NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon's Key, and Super Dodge Ball will be the newest titles coming to Nintendo's paid online service. Since its launch in September, you now need Nintendo Switch Online to play games like Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Open Tournament Golf, Solomon's Key, and Super Dodge Ball joins 20 other classic NES games like Balloon Fight and Dr. Mario. These games are available in the Nintendo Switch Online app, and Nintendo plans on selling exclusive wireless NES controllers for your Switch. But don't use them to play games in handheld mode, Nintendo warns.
