The Megadrive in the spotlight on Switch
Nintendo invites you to attack the weekend in an old school spirit with the addition of four new titles to its catalog. You must have a subscription to Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack to do this.the essential sesame to be able not only to play online but above all to try out a large number of retro games on Switch.
In July, the Megadrive is in the spotlight with four titles well known to lovers of oldies games:
Relive some of the iconic games that defined the Megadrive. Today, four additional games have been added to the Megadrive / Nintendo Switch Online library and are playable now: Comix Zone, MEGA MAN: THE WILY WARS, Target Earth and Zero Wing
Comix Zone, Mega Man and SF
On the program: action, platform but also shoot’em up. Let’s follow the order of the announcement video and start with Zero Wing, a classic side-scrolling shoot’em up in which we pilot the last attack ship of the Milky Way equipped with lasers and homing missiles. Your goal: thwart the plans of Cats, the leader of a band of space pirates who are terrorizing the galaxy.
Extremely popular, the action game Comix Zone needs no introduction! This beat’em all is a pure tribute to American superhero comics, even in its artistic direction which projects us directly into the heart of a comic strip. The progression is like a comic strip with its share of speech bubbles (dialogue bubbles) and onomatopoeia. A must in the Megadrive where you embody a comic book artist stuck in his own creation.
Compiling no less than three different games, Mega Man: The Wily Wars offers us the opportunity to browse the first three episodes of the series, as they were ported to Sega’s Megadrive. You have to complete the three opuses to unlock access to the Wily Tower and challenge the real final boss of the compilation.
If you are unfamiliar with Target Earth, know that this SF action game renowned for its difficulty invites us to protect the Earth and its space bases from a cyborg invasion. The game features eight action-packed, platforming levels with the ability to customize your gear as you play.
All these oldies titles can be discovered now thanks to the Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack on Switch.
