Have you been clamoring for some new content for the Switch Online Nintendo Entertainment System?  The January update due to release on the 16th contains some pretty good updates!

Check out the official PR and trailer below:

On January 16, Zelda II – The Adventure of Link™ and Blaster Master will be available to play anytime and anywhere on Nintendo Entertainment System™ – Nintendo Switch Online.
Zelda II – The Adventure of Link™ – Link returns to Hyrule to search for the Triforce and to awaken Zelda from an endless sleep. Embark on a quest to find the Triforce of Courage and save Hyrule from ruin. Learn magic spells, talk to people in towns to get clues, collect items to increase your power and explore six palaces where the underlings of the evil Ganon await you. This sequel to the Adventure classic uses a side-scrolling visual engine unique to the series for more technical combat, and features more in-depth world roaming as Link encounters townsfolk while on his quest.
Blaster Master – You have fallen down a hidden man hole into a world of creatures so terrifying they would scare the rats away. You can panic and perish, or blast your way through an endless maze of tunnels, searching for the secret passage to your escape. And that is the easy part, because the Master of the caverns lay waiting with prehistoric creatures so powerful, so gigantic, they literally fill your screen. So load your arsenal and get ready.
Joy Mech Fight (Japan) – The game’s objective is simply to defeat all of the enemy robots placed in each level. The concept of the 2D versus fighting game was still new during the early 1990s, and the game’s mechanics are visibly influenced by several other modern fighting games at the time.

Zelda II has always been the one title that wasn’t as popular as the other entries but has somehow become more popular because of that.  Personally, I look forward to playing it again on the Switch.
