For members of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service, four new games have been added to the collection: MEGA MAN: THE WILY WARS, Comix Zone, Zero Wing, and Target Earth. All of these games are now playable on the SEGA Genesis - Nintendo Switch Online library. You can read Nintendo of America’s highlights below:

Today, four games have been added with lightning fury to the SEGA Genesis – Nintendo Switch Online library: MEGA MAN: THE WILY WARS, Comix Zone, Zero Wing and Target Earth. You can play them all right now on the Nintendo Switch system with a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership.

  • MEGA MAN: THE WILY WARS features the first three games in the renowned Mega Man series, compiled for the SEGA Genesis! Wily’s mechanical minions are on the loose and Mega Man must defeat a bevy of robot masters to win the day. Beat all three games to unlock Wily Tower, where you can challenge a new boss.
  • In Comix Zone, experience an action game in a setting based on American comics, complete with superhero power-ups and intense fighting moves. Comic artist Sketch Turner finds himself lost in the Comix Zone – a comic book world of his own creation – and must battle mutants to escape it, panel by panel.
  • Zero Wing is a side-scrolling classic created by Toaplan, a developer of popular arcade games. Cats, the leader of a band of space pirates, is terrorizing the galaxy. Pilot the only remaining Milky Way attack craft and deploy Valcan shots, lasers and homing missiles to stop him and his buccaneers – for great justice!
  • In Target Earth, enemy Chron cyborgs are attacking Earth and its space bases! Battle across eight different levels filled with exhilarating mech suit platforming action and customize your loadout by earning equipment based on your performance. Can you save the planet and uncover the true legacy of Chron?

For Japan, the Mega Drive version of this service also includes the same titles: Comix Zone, Zero Wing, MEGA MAN: THE WILY WARS (called Rockman Mega World), and Target Earth (called Assault Suit Leynos).

I (Elizabeth) am a news writer here. I enjoy all genres of games, but RPG's are my favorite. I try to play a little bit of everything, leading to an excessive backlog :). I view games as an experience to enjoy as well as an interesting study on how the medium evolves. @OnettQueen

"MEGA MAN: THE WILY WARS". There's a joke in that title somewhere. MEGA WOMAN: THE FANY FAR*S.

The golden age meme king finally returns. I've missed Zero Wing so much.

Oh wow it’s the “All Your Base” game. Never thought I’d ever actually play it. Turns out it’s really fun, too!

Two of these are already in the Genesis mini...but hey, good thing I guess.
