Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest is finally coming to Switch as part of Switch Online’s selection of new NES and SNES games from Switch Online in September 2020.
Nintendo revealed the new games in a tweet late Tuesday night. Other SNES games added to Switch Online include Puzzler Mario’s Super Picross and The Peace Keepers, while SCAT: Special Cybernetic Attack Team is expanding the NES catalog. All of the above information will be available to Switch Online subscribers starting Wednesday, September 23rd.
More classic games can be found on 9/23. Under #NES & #SNES – #NintendoSwitchOnline!

The sequel to Donkey Kong Country, added to Switch Online in July, joins Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong on their journey to rescue Donkey Kong from the clutches of King K. Rool. Like its predecessor, Donkey Kong Country 2 is extraordinarily challenging, although it is generally accepted that the sequel doesn’t feel quite as unfair as the first. Better still, Dixie Kong’s more nimble movement and levitation made the gameplay more diverse.
Now that Switch Online is getting one of the best games from SNES, you could get a subscription if you haven’t already. If so, you can sign up for $ 4 / £ 3.49 per month, $ 8 / £ 7 every three months, or $ 20 / £ 18 per year. Not only will this get you the new games for September, but also over 50 other NES games and over 30 other SNES games, some with improvements like memory status and bonus items.
