The Nintendo Entertainment Systsem – Nintendo Switch Online service has been updating regularly, and their next update is coming January 16th. The titles arriving at that time will be  Blaster Master and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Both games are their original versions, ported over to the Online Service.
