We figure that from this point forward, the reactions to Nintendo’s Switch Online game announcements will be less like “woohoo, that classic game is finally here!” and more like “uhhhh….what the heck is that?” Case in point: the three that were revealed today. Nothing is being added to the NES

Seeing Metroid Dread, a game rumored to exist since 2005, suddenly appear during this week’s Nintendo Direct was quite a surprise. Equally surprising was a comment made by series co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto in a follow-up video about the game’s long development history. “The series has chronicled the relationship between Metroids
