While Donkey Kong Country has been re-released many times, Donkey Kong Country 2--which many view as the best game in the SNES DKC trilogy--is harder to get your hands on these days. But for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, that's about to change--the Diddy-centric sequel headlines a strong September line-up of retro games.

On September 23, four new games will be added to Nintendo Switch Online. Here's the full list.

SNES

  • Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
  • Mario's Super Picross
  • The Peace Keepers


NES

  • S.C.A.T: Special Cybernetic Attack Team

In DKC 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (like conquest, get it?), Diddy teams up with Dixie Kong, whose helicopter spin ability lets her float short distances, to rescue Donkey Kong from Kaptain K. Rool. There's a lot of pirate theming going on in this classic from Rare, and the game's levels are tough but fair. It's a true classic--one of the SNES's best games.

Mario's Super Picross will be a welcome addition for picross fans, and it features two-person multiplayer, too. The game has actually never been released in the US, and if you're not familiar with picross, you might struggle--but thankfully, Nintendo has released a helpful instructional video for how to get started and how to play.

The Peace Keepers is a scrolling beat 'em up, with character-specific super attacks and a story that changes depending on your choices. It's part of a loose trilogy of games, following Rival Turf and Brawl Brothers.

The lone NES entry, S.C.A.T., is a challenging action shooter set in the year 2029 (which used to be the far-flung future). You need to take down an alien menace, and it looks pretty fun.

If you've downloaded the Japanese Super Famicom collection from the Japanese Eshop, you can access a new SNES Fire Emblem title. Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem will be added to the SNES collection in Japan.
