“Double Dragon II” and Two Other Games Added to Nintendo Switch Online’s NES Collection

Nintendo announced today that three new games will be joining their ever-growing NES library available with Nintendo Switch Online: Double Dragon II, Volleyball and City Connection.

Double Dragon II: The Revenge is a popular side-scrolling beat ’em up featuring the return of Jimmy and Billy Lee, better known as the Double Dragons, as they fight their way through nine levels filled with Shadow Warriors on a quest to avenge the loss of their beloved Marion.

Volleyball allows players to be the captain of a volleyball team as you compete against various teams in hopes of reaching 15 points first.

City Connection has players on the run from the cops after breaking into a prestigious paint store in New York City. Carrying leaking cans of paint, you must drive your way across the city in hopes of catching a boat to England.

  • Super Mario Bros 1, 2 & 3
  • Double Dragon
  • Yoshi
  • Ninja Giaden
