Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew join the lineup.
Nintendo has announced that Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew will be added to the Nintendo Switch Online NES library this month alongside a brand new Rewind feature that will be available with the entire collection of NES games.
On Wednesday, July 17, these two titles will join the ever-growing list of NES Classics that saw Double Dragon II: The Revenge, Volleyball, and City Connection added last month.
As for the Rewind feature, which is also releasing on July 17, players will be able to press and hold ZL and ZR to rewind and quickly fix any mistake that may have occurred or simply just replay an awesome section of a level.
Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew
Donkey Kong 3’s official description from Nintendo is as follows;
Based on the third game in the enormously popular arcade series, Donkey Kong 3 introduces an exterminator named Stanley as he desperately tries to protect the flowers in his greenhouse from Donkey Kong. Armed only with a can of bug spray, Stanley must force Donkey Kong higher and higher into the greenhouse rafters until Donkey Kong is off the screen and the next stage is reached.
Wrecking Crew’s official description from Nintendo is as follows;
In the days before Mario and Luigi became sports stars in their down time from saving the princess, they tried their hands as one-man wrecking crews. With a hammer as your only tool, take control of the brothers and set out to destroy ladders, rip out pipes, knock out walls, and detonate explosive devices. But make sure to plan your path of destruction carefully, as each building is designed as its own clever puzzle.
