The Kyoto-based company periodically makes available to subscribers to the Nintendo Switch Online service, games belonging to the line-up of two of its most iconic consoles, namely NES and SNES. Today, through a tweet posted via its Twitter account, the American division of Nintendo announced what will be the new games that will be available starting from this September 23rd.

The titles included are Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest, Mario’s Super Picross, and The Peace Keepers, titles originally released for SNES. SCAT: Special Cybernetic Attack Team, released several years ago on the NES, completes the list of new games.

Absolutely noteworthy are Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest and Mario’s Super Picross. The first, released in 1995, is the direct sequel to the first Donkey Kong Country, re-released last July again to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.

In this platformer game, we will have to control Diddy Kong, who will have the task of saving his father Donkey, kidnapped and kept imprisoned by the Kremlins. Mario’s Super Picross, on the other hand, is a puzzle-game that, due to the poor success of the first Mario’s Picross that did not release in the West.

However, the other two titles offered this month are also noteworthy. The Peace Keepers, released in 1993 and known in Japan as Rushing Beat Syura, is a side-scrolling brawler while SCAT is a shooter, known in Europe as Action in New York.
