Zelda II – The Adventure of Link
Arriving on Nintendo Switch Online on Jan. 16, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is a side-scrolling RPG/platformer that first released on the NES in 1987.
It’s the sequel to The Legend of Zelda, which arrived on NES in 1986 and is already available on Nintendo Switch Online. In terms of story, Zelda II takes place several years after the first game, putting you in the shoes of a 16-year-old Link who is (as usual) on a mission to save Princess Zelda.
Also on Jan. 16, members of Nintendo Switch Online will be granted access to Blaster Master, a run-and-gun/platformer title from 1988 which went on to spawn both sequels and spinoffs.
You’ll play as a dude named Jason, who follows his pet frog underground and ends up in a tank battling eight levels of radioactive mutants. The game was renowned for its difficulty and lack of save points, so prepare to have fun with that!
