The Fan-Favorite Games
These new additions to Switch Online are fan-favorite titles from the popular Sega Genesis library. Streets of Rage remains a beloved side-scrolling beat ’em up series. Beyond Oasis is an isometric action-adventure game in which players control a young hero who wields magical powers and team up with four elemental spirits to battle against dark forces trying to take over a magical kingdom. Shinobi III is an action platformer in which players take control of Joe Musashi as he fights against forces attempting to conquer feudal Japan.
