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. Both Wrecking Crew and Donkey Kong 3 will arrive on July 17th. But it's the rewind feature that really has our attention, because it finally makes playing some of the more challenging NES games a little less frustrating. Bungle a segment or will you just attempt again?

The older generation who grew on and loved the series will be thrilled by this new feature.


On Tuesday night, Nintendo revealed two more games set to come to the Nintendo Switch Online library. However, the Rewind feature is different in that it will let you rewind to whatever point you want to rewind to, rather than having to choose from one of your Save States, of which you are given a limited number of. Now that we're already partway into July, Nintendo has lifted the curtain on what games they'll be adding this time around. 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. Coming to the service are Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew. Remember that this isn't all that Nintendo Switch Online has to offer, so if you haven't signed up, look into a $19.99 annual membership.

That doesn't seem to be the case this month as, looking at the official Nintendo YouTube channel, Japanese players are also getting the same two games.
