It’s great that Nintendo has been porting its classic NES games to the library that Switch Online subscribers could play, but everyone was asking, “Why no SNES games?” Now that question finally has an official answer, with Nintendo using its Nintendo Direct presentation to announce not just a few SNES games coming to the collection but a whopping 20.

The selection has a great mix of the games that made the SNES great, and they’ll all be playable starting today.
