Nintendo Switch Online Adds Super Mario Land, Two Other Game Boy Games

Nintendo Adds Super Mario Land and More to Switch Online Library

Nintendo has expanded its library of classic games available on the Nintendo Switch Online service. Subscribers can now enjoy three new Game Boy titles, including the iconic Super Mario Land, a game that fans have been eagerly awaiting on the service.

Super Mario Land holds a special place in the hearts of fans as it is the first Super Mario game not created by Shigeru Miyamoto. In this game, players join Mario as he embarks on a quest through the strange Sarasaland to rescue Princess Daisy from the clutches of the alien invader Tatanga.

Accompanying Super Mario Land are two other classic Game Boy launch titles: Alleyway and Baseball. Alleyway is a Breakout-style game where players must deflect a ball to eliminate grids, while Baseball offers a simple yet enjoyable sports gaming experience with support for two players.

All three titles are now part of the Nintendo Switch Online Game Boy library, accessible to subscribers with a base Nintendo Switch Online membership. Individual memberships are priced at $4 USD for one month, $8 USD for three months, and $20 USD for a year. Families can opt for an annual family plan at $35 USD, covering up to eight Nintendo Accounts on multiple systems.

In addition to the standard subscription, Nintendo also offers an “Expansion Pack” tier with extra benefits. This tier provides access to classic Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance games, as well as Sega Genesis titles and some Nintendo Switch DLC. Expansion Pack subscribers received two new N64 games in April and the Game Boy Advance title F-Zero: Maximum Velocity in March.

While fans await news about the upcoming Switch successor, Nintendo has announced an upcoming Nintendo Direct scheduled for June. However, company president Shuntaro Furukawa has confirmed that this broadcast will not feature any updates on the next Nintendo console.
