Huh. Surely most of those SNES games will be there when the SNES emulation launches just like how twenty or so NES games were there from the beginning. Anyway, wow. That's a pretty good lineup. Nothing from Square, though. Ah, well.
Looks like Nintendo has heard our pleas and is including other retro consoles. If they get a virtual console retro streaming service set up with Nintendo Switch Online, it'd be an insta-buy and I'd never download a rom or homebrew the console again.
Just want to remind people that if you're going to play Breath of Fire II, either play the fan translation or the GBA port (which is identical to the SNES version, but with double EXP and money, making it significantly less of a grind).
They're not free, but I get what you mean. For $20/year, I wouldn't expect much from Nintendo in terms of the "free" software included with the online service. The online services themselves, though, could use a lot of work.
