Nintendo has just taken to their Twitter page to announce the addition of three more NES titles, Metroid, Mighty Bomb Jack and Twinbee.

Not only has Nintendo announced via their Twitter account but they have also released the above trailer onto their YouTube Channel. Clicking into the video we can see that quite a large portion of the community is not very happy about the Nintendo Switch Online service benefits regarding the games that are being added. After reading the comments and doing a quick summary of what people are criticizing, many users of the service are displeased about there being no SNES games available and only a handul of NES Classics.

Some users are calling for Nintendo to give them access to GameCube games, GameBoy games, Nintendo 64 games and just more in general. It seems the Switch community is quite divided on this one, which could lead to quite a lot of cancellations of the service. Nintendo will most likely have to react to this in some kind of fashion, either giving fans access to more games per month, or let users vote towards what games are to be added per month.
