The following Mario games are available on Super Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online.

Game In-app details Release date

Super Mario Kart
Select one of eight characters from the Mario series—offering a variety of driving styles—and take on three championship cups in three different kart classes. Win enough, and you'll unlock a fourth circuit: the ultra-tough Special Cup. Crossing the finish line in first place isn't an easy task, though, as each track has unique obstacles to conquer and racers can obtain special power-ups that boost them to victory. For a different kind of challenge, take on a friend in multiplayer races or go head-to-head in the Battle Mode arena of your choosing, where the object is to pop your opponent's balloons before you lose your own. With more than 15 tracks to master and nearly endless replay value, Super Mario Kart is classic gaming…with some banana peels thrown in for good measure! Available at launch

Super Mario World
During a vacation in Dinosaur Land, Princess Toadstool gets kidnapped and a spell is cast on the inhabitants of the island. When they stumble upon Yoshi, Mario and Luigi learn that Bowser is responsible for the terrible misdeeds. Now, Yoshis are trapped in magical eggs that Bowser has hidden throughout seven castles. Many hidden paths aid Mario in making his way to Bowser's castle, completing 74 areas, and finding all 96 exits. Discover items, including a feather that gives Mario a cape, allowing him to fly, and a flower that lets him shoot fireballs, in layer upon layer of 2D scrolling landscape. You can even ride Yoshi and swallow your enemies!

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Yoshi is back, baby! And he's ready to romp through a crayon-colored world where enemies are everywhere. Prepare to flutter-jump and toss eggs to protect young Mario from Kamek, the evil Magikoopa.

Play as Yoshi, carrying a young Mario through enormous, colorful worlds back to his parents in the Mushroom Kingdom. Kamek's goons are constantly in pursuit, so stay alert and watch out for the Magikoopa's devious traps. Throw eggs, gobble up enemies, solve puzzles, and even transform into wild vehicles like a helicopter, a submarine, and a mole tank. Is Yoshi up to the momentous task? The fates of Yoshi, Mario, and the future of the Mushroom Kingdom are in your hands. Ground-pound, flutter jump, and morph your way to victory!

Mario's Super Picross
Use the horizontal and vertical numbers as clues and chisel away the squares to reveal picture after picture.

This puzzle game was released for the Super Famicom system in 1995—and has never been translated into English. Its puzzles ask the player to use numbers marking the rows and columns of a grid in order to uncover each solution and bring a hidden image to the surface. In addition to the normal play mode, there is also Wario's Super Picross, which has a set of difficult puzzles to tackle. But you don't have to play alone! You can get a friend in on the excavation by simply connecting a second controller. Two chisels are better than one, they say!

September 23, 2020[8] (not in Japan)

Although not a Mario title, Panel de Pon, a game that was originally released internationally as a Yoshi game under the name Tetris Attack, is also available for the application in all regions, including North America, Europe, and Australia for the first time, from May 20, 2020.
