March 2023 Switch Online games now live: After a long time, Nintendo has announced a new batch of bonus games that you can download with an active Switch Online membership. This time there are not only new titles from the NES and SNES era, but also two Game Boy games that you can play on the Nintendo Switch.

And especially fans of the pink smooch can be happy: Kirby’s Dream Land 2 is included!

Nintendo Switch Online – All New Bonus Games in March 2023


  • Kirby’s Dreamland 2
  • BurgerTime Deluxe



The highlight of this month is probably the platformer Kirby’s Dream Land 2 for most players. In the Game Boy classic you travel a total of seven islands and take on the nasty king Dedede and his henchmen. The aim is to find out what the disappearance of the rainbow bridges that connect the islands of Dream Land are all about.

In the game you run, swim or fly through the levels and of course you also use Kirby’s special power: you can suck in opponents and use them as deadly projectiles. With the hamster Rick, the fish Kine and the owl Coo you even get support from three animal companions this time.
