Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will recognize many of the games on this list as their console versions are available through the NES app. However, in many cases the arcade versions have noticeable differences. For example, Against. Super Mario Bros. released after the NES version and has a higher difficulty level than the original game. However, the arcade version Knock out!! predates the release of the NES and features excellent graphics and differences in the opponents players face.
These differences may not be enough to sway some casual fans, but for arcade fans, Hamster’s versions are definitely worth it. Not every game on this list has aged gracefully, but there are some hidden gems; I personally have always been a big fan Donkey Kong 3! Luckily, Switch owners have a bit of time to research these games and decide which ones they’d like to pick up as the discounts run until December 14th.
