Harvest Moon Among Four New Nintendo Switch Online Retro Additions
The original SNES version of Harvest Moon makes its way to Nintendo Switch Online, along with three other retro games.
Nintendo revealed four new retro titles being added to the Nintendo Switch Online series of consoles, and some cool additions are on the way. Most notable among them is the Super NES version of the original Harvest Moon. Which, yes, we realize what a contradiction of a sentence that is with rebranding and whatnot, but that's how it was in North America when it first came out. Joining it will be Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble and Blaster Master: Enemy Below from the Game Boy and Mystery Tower for the NES. All four are playable right now on NOS and by updating their apps. We have more info on all of the games from the company below.
Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble – When you move, Kirby moves! This action game was released for the Game Boy Color system in 2001 and features the ever-adorable Kirby! In this game, it's all about how Kirby tilts and tumbles! This twist on classic Kirby gameplay adds new levels of fun. Kirby moves left, right, forward and backward based on the movement of the system you hold in your hands! This version replicates the motion controls from the original Game Boy Color version.

Blaster Master: Enemy Below – Jason and his legendary battle vehicle, SOPHIA, are back again to save the world.

Swap in and out of your vehicle and adapt to the situation to succeed!
