Nintendo have added a selection of classic SEGA Genesis games to their Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack catalog.

Nintendo's recent additions will be a welcome sight for retro fans as four more titles have been added to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack offerings. The new titles available from today are:

  • Comix Zone
  • Target Earth
  • Zero Wing
  • Mega Man: The Wily Wars

These four titles join the likes of Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Street Fighter 2, ToeJam & Earl, and plenty more.

Comix Zone is a 1995 beat 'em up game set within the panels of a comic book. Players control Sketch Turner, an artist and rock musician who finds himself in the world of his own comic book.

Target Earth is a 1990 action shooter set in the year 2201. Players control Rex, a master of Assault Suit combat and commander of the Assault Suit Wing on the Ganymede base, as he fights to defend Earth and space from a cyborg army.

Zero Wing is a 1989 side-scrolling arcade shooter that made its console debut in 1991. The game is perhaps best known for spawning the classic internet meme "All your base are belong to us" thanks to a poorly translated cutscene.

Mega Man: The Wily Wars is a 1994 remake compilation of the first three Mega Man games. The Wily Wars feature a number of graphical upgrades compared to each game's original releases.

The catalog of available SEGA Genesis games is only available to subscribers of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. Players also receive access to a selection of Nintendo 64 classics and free DLC for select Nintendo Switch games.
