Nintendo revealed July’s upcoming games for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. EA’s The Immortal will be the upcoming NES game for the service. The SNES games will be Donkey Kong Country, developed by Rare and Natsume Championship Wrestling. The games will launch on July 15 exclusively for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.

Will Next-Gen Games Cost More?

UPDATE: The PC version will remain at $59.99 US / CA$79.99 for the base version.

In the United States, major video games generally cost $59.99 or $79.99 in Canada. That may be changing for next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Take-Two Interactive have announced that NBA 2K21 will cost more on PS5 and Xbox One. Gamers will have to pay $69.99 US for its new title; this likely means other big titles will follow suit. In Canada, it is possible that games could costs as much as $94.99, unless publishers are willing to take a loss in the Canadian market and price games at $89.99.

For those wanting the game at $59.99, gamers will want to get game on current generation consoles. Additionally, it is not yet clear what the game will cost on PC or Nintendo Switch if there will even be a port on Switch.
