These titles will be available for download beginning on May 15. With the new additions, the catalog of NES freebies climbs to 40. The library launched last year with 20, with more titles being added on a monthly basis to expand the appeal of the service. For reference, April’s additions included Punch-Out!!, Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels, and Star Soldier.
