Game Boy - Nintendo Switch Online
Released for the Game Boy system in 1998, play as a young Vampire Hunter named Sonia Belmont, who takes the whip her grandfather taught her to use and heads to the castle where Dracula awaits. You can earn Soul Weapons by defeating bosses and use them to progress further into the castle. Activate Burning Mode to become temporarily invincible once per stage, which can help if you find yourself in any desperate situations!

The Mysterious Murasame Castle
A mysterious force has begun to take control over Murasame Castle and its lands. Each lord in four neighboring castles has taken possession of a dark sphere of power, allowing them to summon ninja armies and monsters that wreak havoc in the villages. Takamaru, a brave samurai swordsman, has been sent to investigate. He must infiltrate all four castles and defeat the lords before making his way to Murasame Castle. Using sword and shuriken attacks, unlock the secret source of evil!
You play heroic dragon Tamagon, who must defeat evil by navigating a maze with multiple types of challenges—including collecting boa-boa dots and destroying enemies with fire breath. But keep an eye on the devil at the top of the screen as you go! He'll instruct his minions to move the maze in random directions, trying to squash Tamagon within its walls.
A second free update was added a couple weeks ago to the F-ZERO 99 game. Line up on five additional tracks as part of King League:
Mute City III
Fire Field (Grand Prix only)
Red Canyon II (Pro Tracks and Mini Prix only)
