Several free games are offered by Nintendo Switch Online service. Almost every month there is an offer. Usually the titles offered by NES gives a retro throwback to the old days of gaming. Two new NES titles are likely to come to the service on August 21st. The Free NES Games for Nintendo Switch Online users includes Kung-Fu Heroes, the cooperative beat ‘em up game and Vice: Project Doom. It seems the latter one is quite rare. This action game has not been re-released since its initial debut in 1991. This release is the first official port of the game in almost three decades.
With these two titles on board the total count of NES games available with Nintendo Switch Online would reach to 48. Recently a few classic like Wrecking Crew and Donkey Kong 3 were brought in the month of July. The offer in June included City Connection and Double Dragon II.
Though the NES library may be free for a user but in order to access the same one needs to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription which has charges attached to it. Here below are the Subscription charges
- US $4 / £3.49 / AU $6 is for one month,
- US $8 / £7 / AU $12 is for a quarter and

Over and above this, they also have an annual Family Membership fees which costs US $35 / £31.49 / AU $55. It covers eight accounts over multiple Switch systems and seems to be the most cost effective for many people.
Well there are many other freebies attached to the subscription. Switch Online subscribers also get a free game in the form of Super Smash Bros in addition to NES games.
