Kirby's Avalanche Headlines New Additions To Super NES And NES Libraries For Switch Online

And a game that launched at least one lawsuit.

Three more titles have been added to the Nintendo Switch Online NES and Super Nintendo libraries.

  • Kirby's Avalanche (1995), aka Kirby's Ghost Trap, is now available - a branded version of the Puyo Puyo puzzle games that was last released in 2007 on the Wii Virtual Console.
  • Fighter's History (1994) is a 2D fighting game from Data East, perhaps best known for being so similar to Street Fighter II that Capcom sued to attempt to block the game's sale (the lawsuit was unsuccessful).
  • Daiva Story 6: Imperial of Nirsartia is a strategy title originally released on the Famicom in 1986 and never localized. Originally published by Toshiba/EMI, the game is the sixth of seven games in a series that tells the same story from seven different perspectives.

Played through Fighter's History a lot growing up and intend to enjoy it even more now that it is on the Switch.

The Japanese app is getting Kirby Star Stacker instead of Kirby Avalanche.

Never heard of the Daiva series, but these are the kinds of deep cuts I like seeing them put on these apps.

That's Kirby's Super Star Stacker, good sir!

I never played Kirby's Avalanche but it's just Puyo Puyo so nothing interesting there. I tried out Kirby's Super Star Stacker and it's... pretty weird! I can't think of another game to compare it to so I guess that makes it more of its own thing at least. The CPU is surprisingly brutal for a Kirby game.

Kirby's Avalanche is no joke either. I've been replaying it on the App. It's probably the first time in 19 - 20 years since I've played that game and that game doesn't hold back on the difficulty either. I can't believe I came close to beating it back in the day without a rewind feature.
