Nintendo has earlier confirmed its March 2019 offerings for the Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online app, which is exclusively available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. On March 13, 2019, Japan will be getting three games: Kid Icarus, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and The Blade of Light, and Yie Ar Kung-Fu. The rest of the world, however, is getting Kid Icarus and StarTropics!
Are you guys excited that the game is finally going to be playable on the Nintendo Switch at no additional charge?! Here's hoping they offer Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II as well very soon!

I heard of the news as well! I'm super excited now that I can play it on the go. Hopefully it brings some attention back to this forum. The fact that it's coming 2 days before the 25th anniversary of ZR:ST2 is interesting... :thinking: Now I gotta play both games to celebrate the occasion! (I think I'll post about my remixes of the dungeon themes soon.)
Spoiler? I'm not sure I'd consider it that. If they were showing a boss from way later in the game then maybe it would be a problem.
Overall this is really cool though! I wonder why StarTropics never had a release on the 3DS eShop, as I definitely would have bought it there. It's great to finally have StarTropics on a portable console, although I would have preferred if it was in a form where I could actually own it.
I guess you can't ask for too much though! As always I just hope that this introduces new people to the game!

It turns out the Nintendo Switch release of StarTropics failed to include any official means to find out the correct frequency to start up Uncle Steve's submarine, unlike the Virtual Console releases on the Wii and Wii U which included digital copies of Uncle Steve's infamous secret message in his letter to Mike. GameXplain even addressed this issue earlier today in this new following video:
How did Nintendo manage to mess up this iconic part of the game with this release?!
I was really happy to hear that this came to switch! I beat it the day it came out on switch, I didn't realize I was that overdue on a playthrough. I was hoping that it'd some way make its way to Japan though, because I really want StarTropics to get revived and I think stoking up a worldwide love for it would be the best way.
