July's Nintendo Switch Online NES Games and Rewind Feature Announced

July's Nintendo Switch Online NES Games and Rewind Feature Announced

Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew will be added to the Nintendo Switch Online NES library, later this month, along with a brand new Rewind feature which can be accessed throughout the NES games collection, Nintendo announced.

On Tuesday night, Nintendo revealed two more games set to come to the Nintendo Switch Online library.

Are you glad to see Rewind as a feature? Will you be using the rewind feature?

Wrecking Crew, Donkey Kong 3 and the Rewind feature all arrive on July 17th.

Wrecking Crew's official description from Nintendo is as follows; In the days before Mario and Luigi became sports stars in their down time from saving the princess, they tried their hands as one-man wrecking crews. Players will be able to activate the feature on Nintendo Switch Online by holding the ZL and ZR buttons while playing a game, giving players a chance to take another shot at a challenging section of a game or give it another shot.


While we'll never begrudge new functionality, Nintendo Switch Online continues to be a disappointment.

I still have a Nintendo Online subscription, but it's honestly starting to feel like a bit of a grudge purchase.

That doesn't seem to be the case this month as, looking at the official Nintendo YouTube channel, Japanese players are also getting the same two games.
