While the NES app is a welcome addition to the Switch Online membership, it is still a source of many complaints by those who have purchased a membership, primarily because they are incredibly old games and ones that Nintendo has shoved down our throats time and time again. If you have been hoping to see other Nintendo consoles represented on Switch Online then we could *possibly* be in luck.
A dataminer by the name of Oatmealdome has been chopping away at the source code for the app and has discovered mention of 4 different emulators:
As seen in the list, the first two relate to the NES and SNES while the other two remain a mystery. Does this mean other consoles are on the way to the Switch? One can only hope and surely Nintendo knows that we would welcome it!
What do you think the other two are? Drop us a comment below and if you are extra chatty be sure to visit us in our Community forums!
