When Nintendo first announced the Switch Online subscription, the company promised a growing list of NES games to subscribers, starting with 20. Now, it looks like the company is adding SNES games to the list as well.
A Twitter user going by KapuccinoHeck has unearthed code hidden in the online service that suggests up to 22 SNES games will be added to the list.
I was finally able to look around NES Online's strings a bit myself and noticed the sheer amount of SNES games planned.
Here's a list for you folks out there:#NintendoSwitch

Another dataminer, going by SnowmealDome (@OatmealDome), shared that there are four different emulator types while going through code for the NES Switch app. Two of them are for the NES and SNES. The remaining two remain as unknowns, but it suggests that there are two more generations of Nintendo classic consoles that may be included on the Switch.
Kachikachi (NES Classic)
Canoe (SNES Classic)
This could mean there will be two new Classic consoles and/or three new consoles for Switch Online.

All that said, Nintendo has not said anything about them officially. But it’s a lot to look forward to, between the 22 SNES games and the two other possible console emulators.
