8 NES Games You Didn’t Know Were Sequels (Nintendo Entertainment System)

A lot of your favorite games for the Nintendo Entertainment System received follow-ups in cartridge form, and for some reason many of them flew under the radar. This is the first in a series focused on these forgotten sequels, beginning with a few games you may or may not know already.

After years of focusing on the best games for the NES, I decided to change gears and focus on lesser known cartridges that have, for one reason or another, generally escaped the public discussion and general nostalgia. This series highlights many of the relatively unknown, obscure, and unloved titles in the Nintendo Entertainment System’s library. Some of these games are at best mediocre. Many are painfully bad, some of the worst NES games around. Most are hilarious for all the wrong reasons! Occasionally, OCCASIONALLY, a handful of them are actually good, borderline hidden gems.

While you won’t find any of these on the NES Classic, some of these titles have managed to make their way onto the Nintendo Switch, so if you don’t have an original Nintendo console or ROMs escape you ethically or technologically, there are several ways to play them.
