Nintendo Switch Online is Adding Double Dragon II, Volleyball, and City Connection to NES Library This Month
With Nintendo Switch Online’s debut last fall, one of the online service’s most valuable perks is the fact that the service provides users with a wealth of classic games to enjoy with their friends, and now three more retro classics are bringing a variety of genres to the Switch next week.
Nintendo has announced that three new NES titles will be coming to the growing library of retro games on Nintendo Switch Online on June 12, 2019. The new titles in question will be City Connection, Double Dragon II: The Revenge, and Volleyball. You can find descriptions for each game below from Nintendo:
DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
Billy and Jimmy Lee, the Double Dragons, are back to avenge the loss of Marian. In their quest to defeat the evil Shadow Warriors, Billy and Jimmy must complete nine missions, facing deadly street gangs, ninjas, and huge mutant fighters. The duo must traverse through construction sites, alleyways, and underwater hideouts complete with secret elevator shafts, spiked ceilings, and razor-sharp mechanical claws. Can Billy and Jimmy contend with the enemies placed before them and ultimately save the world?
Enjoy a game of volleyball as you spike for a point, slam a perfect serve, and make a save that wins the game for your team. It’s all up to you because you call the shots in Nintendo Volleyball! As captain, you’ll lead your team through a fast-paced warm-up round, and then quickly move into the heat of real volleyball competition, using the sport’s official rules from when this game was originally released: When serving, you earn a point for winning a rally. The first team to 15 points wins the set, and the first team to win three sets takes the match! If the ball hits the net on a serve, though, service switches to the opposing team. Use the B Button to direct your team to block and return, feint and spike—and volley your way to victory!
After breaking into an exclusive paint store in New York City, you’re on the run from the cops! Carrying leaky 10-gallon cans of paint, drive over every mile of New York City highways before catching a boat to England. From there, you will go on a tour of the world, avoiding the police and leaking paint everywhere you go. Your only defense: picking up oil cans left on the highway and throwing them at police cars. Send the police for a spin and knock them off the road to make your getaway!
City Connection, Double Dragon II: The Revenge, and Volleyball will all be added to Nintendo Switch Online on June 12 – for a closer look at what to expect, you can check out the new video from Nintendo below:
