Star Fox 2 Comes to Nintendo Switch!

Here's a little piece of unexpected news. Nintendo has announced the next wave of NES and SNES games coming to the Nintendo Switch's online membership service, and one of the games happens to be the "unreleased" Star Fox 2! This game was scheduled to come out near the end of the SNES's life, but was put off in favor of the upcoming Nintendo 64. This is what ultimately lead to the development of Star Fox 64, and why SF2 never saw the light of day officially -- that is until the SNES Classic was released. If you didn't manage to grab a SNES Classic however, then there was no official way to play Star Fox 2. But as already mentioned, this has now changed.

Along with SF2 also comes a handful of other games. These games have been outlined on Nintendo's Official Website as follows:
Super NES
  • Star Fox 2 – This 3D rail-shooter and second installment of the Star Fox series was first designed for Super NES, but went unreleased until it appeared on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system in 2017. This time, Emperor Andross is on a crusade to conquer the Lylat system and the Star Fox team itself. After a long wait, Star Fox is back in action.
  • Super Punch-Out!! – Featuring the tight gameplay and humor the series is known for, this sequel to the NES classic sees Little Mac return to the ring with the World Video Boxing Association belt once again at stake.
  • Kirby Super Star – That awful King Dedede is at it again – he’s stolen all the food in Dream Land. It’s up to Kirby to get it back and ultimately save Popstar from being taken over. There’s never a dull moment as Kirby dashes, flies and fights!
  • Breath of Fire II – Set 500 years after the original, take on the role of Ryu, the last member of the Dragon Clan. A cast of unusual and exciting companions join you in your adventures across a wondrous land full of magic and mystery.
