Zelda 2, Blaster Master are your next Nintendo Switch Online games

Da-da-da-daaaa.

Nintendo Switch Online's next additions are Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link and Blaster Master.

Both games will be available to play next week, from Wednesday 16th January.

Around 30 NES games are now available in the catalogue, which comes as part of Nintendo's £17.99/year Switch online subscription.

Here's a look at them both in action to whet your appetite:
