Kid Icarus and StarTropics Coming to Nintendo Switch Online in March

This evening, Nintendo announced the next two classic NES games coming to Nintendo Switch Online as we're getting Kid Icarus and StarTropics. These are two titles that will stir up some awesome memories for people, first with Kid Icarus being an absolute overlooked classic platformer that modern gamers would primarily know for playing Pit on Smash Bros. Meanwhile, Star Tropics was an adventure game released in 1990 when the NES was just rolling out hit after hit just before the SNES came around, where you have to save your uncle who has been kidnapped on an island. We have both of the games' descriptions below as they will be added to the Nintendo Switch Online library on March 13th.
