The Nintendo Switch Online service has added four new titles to their NES and SNES services. It has been quite some time since Nintendo has updated these apps, so I thought now is the time to run down all of the available games on both the NES and SNES services to give us an idea of where we are now and where the apps can still go down the road.

Now, before we start, it is worth noting that some games are subject to regional exclusivity. There are some games exclusive to the west and some that are exclusive to Japan, and Nintendo also included some special versions of certain NES games called SP. We will point out all of these separately to help with any confusion.
