Nintendo Adds NES-themed Icons To Nintendo Switch Online

It’s a new month with some new icons. Nintendo has revealed the next four waves of icons coming to Nintendo Switch Online, and they’re retro-themed. Players will be able to collect these icons from Super Mario Bros., Balloon Fight and The Legend of Zelda, as well as some themed around the NES itself. The four waves will be arriving and leaving weekly, starting on a Monday and ending on the following Monday.

These classic icons are joined by the regular monthly update of Animal Crossing characters, this month features the residents with September birthdays. This includes the fan-favorite smug squirrel Marshal, who we’re sure will be popular.
