If the Indie World Direct news, revealing more Xenoblade Chronicles 3 DLC and two new amiibo, wasn’t enough for you, Nintendo has also added four new games to the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive library on the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack – all That was within the past 24 hours.
While the likes of Street Fighter II’: Special Champion Edition and Kid Chameleon are more than enough to thrill, it’s the addition of Pulseman that has Nintendo’s senses tingling. This is because the title comes from Game Freak, where it worked in the days before Pokémon Red and Blue.
This 1994 action platformer has enough Mega Man-esque gameplay to satisfy any side scroller fan and with resale prices for original copies of the title currently quite high already, we’re glad to see that some of Game Freak’s non-Pokemon projects are becoming so readily available. Larger.
For a brief rundown of what the game has to offer, check out the following from Nintendo:

Being part of the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive library, Pulseman is only available to those with a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership.
