Nintendo Switch Online adds three games never released outside of Japan

Nintendo Switch Online introduces four new retro games for its subscribers to enjoy through its emulation services. The recently added games include Quest for Camelot, Kirby’s Star Stacker, Joy Mech Fight, and Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day! These games span across the Game Boy, SNES, and NES libraries. While Kirby’s Star Stacker may be the only familiar title for many, Quest for Camelot has caught my attention for reasons unrelated to gaming.

Quest for Camelot is an action RPG based on the animated Warner Bros. movie of the same name. While the plot details do not particularly interest me, the fact that the film’s soundtrack features original songs performed by Andrea Corr adds a tangential appeal. This game can be played on Game Boy emulation.

Kirby’s Star Stacker, a remake of the original Game Boy release, is also known as Kirby’s Super Star Stacker. It is worth noting that this is the first time the SNES version of the game has been made available overseas through Switch Online.

Joy Mech Fight is a fighting game with a robotic twist. Originally released on NES in 1993, this marks the first time the game is available in Europe and North America. Similarly, Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day! is part of the NES library and is one of the earlier entries in the Kunio-kun series, more commonly known as River City in the western market.

It is important to mention that, apart from Quest for Camelot, all the games can only be played in Japanese. Are any of these games catching your interest?
