Donkey Kong Country will release for Nintendo Switch Online next week
Plus two other SNES and NES games
Super Nintendo platformer Donkey Kong Country will release for Nintendo Switch Online next week, along with two other classic games.
1994’s Donkey Kong Country was a series reboot created by British developer Rare. The game was influential for its use of silicon graphics workstations to create impressive 3D graphics.
The Rare title will release on July 15 In Europe and North America alongside SNES game Natsume Championship Wrestling and NES entry The Immortal.
Created by Harvest Moon developer Natsume, Natsume Championship Wrestling (1994) was released in 1994 in North America, but never made it to Europe other than later Virtual Console versions.
Meanwhile, The Immortal is an isometric action-adventure dark fantasy game originally published by Electronic Arts.
Nintendo Switch Online launched in September 2018 and allows members to access a growing library of classic SNES and NES games, back up save data online, and receive special offers including free access to Tetris 99.
