Donkey Kong Country 3 is a direct sequel to the second game, Diddy’s Kong Quest, another title in the long-running Donkey Kong series of games.

The Ignition Factor is a firefighting game that originally released back in 1994 in Japan and then in early 1995 in North America. In this title, players control firefighters that move through different emergency situations, putting out fires and rescuing people.

SUPER VALIS IV is a platforming game developed by Laser Soft that released as Valis IV on PC in 1991 before being updated for SNES. Using a combination of weapons, moves, and spells, players fight through levels to ultimately face the level boss.

Tuff E Nuff is a fighting game that was released in 1993. Featuring a multi-stage story mode, one to two players, and a variety of characters, there’s plenty of fun to be found here.

Finally, there’s Nightshade from the NES. Released in 1992, Nightshade is an action-adventure game featuring point-and-click elements. The game actually featured a sort of morale system, whereby good deeds increase the character’s “popularity” meter.

These titles will all be available on the Nintendo Switch Online collection on December 18. If you want access to a large library of old school Nintendo titles, the Nintendo Switch Online subscription will set you back a measly $19.99 USD per year.
