June 2023 has brought a nostalgic gust of excitement to Nintendo Switch Online, with the addition of the beloved Super Nintendo classic, Harvest Moon, and three other engaging games. This release follows hot on the heels of three highly acclaimed Game Boy Advance (GBA) games that enriched the platform in the preceding weeks.

Gaming Classics Invade June 2023 Nintendo Switch Online Update

Nintendo Switch Online has proven its mettle since it was first unveiled in the Autumn of 2018. This potent gaming platform recently flaunted an impressive 36 million strong subscriber base as of September. An additional Expansion Pack tier, launched in October 2021, added to the allure, offering access to GBA and N64 games, along with other extras such as the Booster Course Pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. However, the essence of Nintendo’s service remains rooted in the base Nintendo Switch Online (NSO) tier, which consistently adds new treasures to its collection.

The June 5th update added Blaster Master: Enemy Below, Harvest Moon, Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble, and Mystery Tower to the NSO line-up. Harvest Moon, a farming management simulator that pioneered a genre influencing many subsequent titles, including the hit Stardew Valley, stands as the most influential game among the latest additions. However, this does not overshadow the merits of the other games added this month. Blaster Master: Enemy Below has been hailed as a unique Metroidvania with distinctive appeal and replayability, and Mystery Tower enjoys a reputation as a compelling puzzle platformer of the NES era.

Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble, a Game Boy Colour platformer that initially rolled out in 2000, boasted a then-novel control scheme. The game’s cartridge was fitted with an accelerometer, which let players manipulate Kirby by tilting their device. Given that both the Joy-Cons and the Switch Pro Controller house a far superior version of this technology, it’s likely that Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble will find a welcoming audience on the hybrid console, and may even usher in additional motion-controlled Game Boy re-releases on the Switch.

Since its inception in 2018, Nintendo Switch Online has seen a steady inflow of new games each month. Expectations are set for another refresh in mid-July. Meanwhile, the Expansion Pass tier is set to receive several new games later in the month. We’ll keep you posted on any new future updates that the iconic portable console receives.
