Time to undo all those bad jumps. Nintendo Switch's retro classics on the Online service are getting a rewind feature on July 17, alongside two new games for the service.
Available for the entirety of the Switch Online collection of retro Nintendo games, the Rewind function lets you roll back any mistakes you might have made or level you might want to replay. By holding ZL and ZR at the same time, you can roll it back like a tape and start over.
Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew will also be arriving on the Switch Online service on the same day. The former pits you against Donkey Kong as exterminator Stanley, who wants to protect his garden from the inconsiderate gorilla. Wrecking Crew has Nintendo's plumber brothers wrecking stuff, from ladders and pipes to barrels and explosives. Wow, Mario was really hardcore before all the "save the princess" stuff.
Nintendo Switch Online is a paid subscription service, offering access to multiplayer for Switch games as well as a catalog of throwback Nintendo titles and some other perks. The service recently hit 10 million accounts, meaning a lot of folks are using it, probably for Tetris 99.
Nintendo also launched a voucher promotion that lets Switch Online users buy newer games at what is essentially a bundled discount. While paying for multiplayer is still a bit of a bummer, it's nice to see Nintendo continuing to flesh this service out, though I'm wondering how many NES games it has left to put up on the online catalog.
