Donkey Kong 3

The Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online app will add Wrecking Crew and Donkey Kong 3 on July 17, Nintendo announced.

The service will also add a new “Rewind” feature available to use with the entire collection of Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online games, allowing players to rewind gameplay by pressing and holding the ZL + ZR buttons.

Here is an overview of each game, via Nintendo:

  • Donkey Kong 3 – Based on the third game in the enormously popular arcade series, Donkey Kong 3 introduces an exterminator named Stanley as he desperately tries to protect the flowers in his greenhouse from Donkey Kong. Armed only with a can of bug spray, Stanley must force Donkey Kong higher and higher into the greenhouse rafters until Donkey Kong is off the screen and the next stage is reached.
  • Wrecking Crew – In the days before Mario and Luigi became sports stars in their downtime from saving the princess, they tried their hands as one-man wrecking crews. With a hammer as their only tool, take control of the brothers and set out to destroy ladders, rip out pipes, knock out walls and detonate explosive devices. But make sure to plan your path of destruction carefully, as each building is designed as its own clever puzzle.

The Nintendo Switch Online subscriber-exclusive app allows users to play classic Nintendo Entertainment System games. With online play added to every classic game, you can compete or cooperate online with friends, share your screen, or pass the controller, depending on the game.
