Today, Nintendo blessed their Switch Online members with four new retro titles in their library. One in particular is quite intriguing to us.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – there are always going to be a couple great additions and a couple fillers when we get these drops.
Today’s additions are no different. But two of the games in particular are quite special.
So let’s drive right in and see what’s going to be new on our Nintendo Switch.

Mystery Tower (NES)
Alright, so this is gonna be our main filler title in the June drop.
I’ve never heard of this title before. But after having seen it, it’s a puzzle platformer that could be interesting to give a go for the first time.
This was an original Famicom title that released in Japan in 1986. And it certainly has very strong retro feels.
A fun mix of platforming and puzzle solving while avoiding unruly inhabitants of the tower and the inconvenient spike covered ground.
Harvest Moon (SNES)
Just in time for the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Harvest Moon franchise!
Nintendo drops the very first entry in the series to enjoy while we wait for the new Winds of Anthos coming later this year.
So whether you’re revisiting Flower Bud Village or seeing it for the first time, this is a great game to play for the summer.
Harvest Moon was a major influence on so many great games like Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley. And it’s credited as helping establish the farming sim genre.
All of the retro farming sim goodness you could ask for. And your goal is not just to keep the plants alive. You also are looking for love!
Blaster Master: Enemy Below (Game Boy)
Our next new addition is a classic Game Boy Color title, Blaster Master: Enemy Below.
This is the sequel to the classic NES Blaster Master video game, which is also available to play on the Switch Online service.
The Blaster Master games are quite unique, mixing both top-down perspective and side scrolling game play.
And you play as both a space trooper on foot and the mech tank blasting machine baddies.
We included this in our list of the best Game Boy Color games and it’s just good classic video game fun.
Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble (Game Boy)
This was the addition to our Switch Online library that immediately caught my attention.
Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble is a Game Boy Color title that made use of a special cartridge with a a built-in accelerometer.
The game could actually determine how you were tilting your Game Boy, which felt like magic back in 2001.
Because the game play is entirely based on the tilting of your handheld, this is a game that’s tough to emulate.
So many have never played this amazing Kirby game unless they own an original cartridge.
What makes the June Switch Online update so special is how this classic game works with the Nintendo Switch accelerometer.
So if you’ve never had the chance to play one of the coolest games on the Game Boy Color, now’s your time!
We particularly love this rare Kirby classic and we included it on our list of the best Kirby games of all time.
Were so happy to see this game come to the Nintendo Switch Online service and will be playing it in full force over the coming weeks!
