- SEGA Genesis – Nintendo Switch Online***
- The Revenge of Shinobi – A sequel to SEGA’s classic arcade game, this action side-scroller plunges you into the role of Joe Musashi as he stalks and attempts to annihilate – if you’re up to the task – the evil Neo Zeed criminal network. This mission is nothing to take lightly, especially when this ninja packs a brutal arsenal of shurikens and ninjitsu skills. Have faith: The power of the ninja is strong.
- Ghouls ’n Ghosts – This side-scrolling classic besets you with marauding demons: scythe-wielding skeletons, sickle weasels and evil princes that crawl from beneath the mud. You must fend them all off to defend the kingdom and manage to do it without losing your shirt in the process … or in Arthur’s case – his suit of armor.
- Landstalker – Nigel the Forest Elf faces more delightful puzzles in this action-adventure than you can shake a custom-forged broadsword at. Journey through a fantastical realm while navigating intricate isometric mazes that bring you ever closer to the secret of King Nole’s riches.
