Sadly, this doesn't involve making Gretzky bleed, but the chances are no longer 0.

Nintendo's latest update to the Switch Online subscriptions includes a classic platformer and a new publisher getting on board.

An update on July 15 will include 1994's Donkey Kong Country and Virtual Console regular Natsume Championship Wrestling coming to the Super Nintendo library. The NES library will only add a single game, but it will be the 1991 Electronic Arts-published The Immortal.

Japan's lineup will include Vice: Project Doom for the Famicom (known there as Gun-Dec), DKC, and 1992's Shin Megami Tensei.

Excited for DKC. Less so the other two but those are games to play. 

Oh there was a new upload on Nintendos channel on YT where they bring back Classified Info and there is some cheat codes for the game. 50 lives, Lots of lives for Diddy and even how to get into practice bonus levels. Fun stuff.

I'm happy with thinking pokepal148 is just eating a stick of butter. It seems about right for him. I don't need no stinking facts.

To me the bigger news is getting a classic EA game on the service.  Even during the Wii's prime, I don't remember anything from EA being but on the Virtual Console.  Now the quality of said game is very debatable, its still nice to see Nintendo continues to get deep for picks. 

Really shows that as long as there's no license issues, a lot of classic obscure titles might have a chance.

Don't mean to undermine your point, but just a note that The Immortal is (no longer?) owned by EA. Piko Interactive has the rights currently, and have also recently released it on the Evercade handheld. There it's on a 20-in-1 cartridge with Drakkhen, Top Racer and others of the era.
