The data strings of SNES games for the Nintendo Switch Online service which were discovered last month have now been removed in the latest update to the ‘NES Online’ app.
The news comes from the Twitter use @itssimontime, who’s tweet was retweeted by dataminer @KapuccinoHeck, who was the one who discovered the game data in the first place.
Currently we are unsure as to why they were removed but we will make sure to write when we know more information.

Online UK Retailer, Base, may have revealed the release dates for three Nintendo Switch games to be released in 2019. They have put up three listings on the site for Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Daemon X Machina. Nintendo hasn’t officially announced these dates for the games yet so this information should be seen as a rumour until we get confirmation from Nintendo themselves.
Their website says:
- Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch: £47.85 (RRP £59.99)
- Luigi’s Mansion 3: £39.85 (RRP £49.99)
- Daemon X Machina: £39.85 (RRP £49.99)
The president of VideoLand, the makers of the VLC Media Player has said that he is considering bringing the media player program to the Nintendo Switch as well as the PlayStation 4.
This is, of course, not a confirmation that it is coming but definitely now in the realms of possibility.
New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe released last Friday and it has managed to go straight to number 1 on the charts in the United Kingdom. It has also managed to sell 24.8% more than what it did in a similar period on the Wii U.
Although, the Wii U had a smaller install base so we can’t tell for certain exactly how much better this is, but it certainly shows the success of the Switch!
