Nintendo Switch Online outlined before September release

Nintendo Switch Online services detailed

While the Family Membership does allow access across different systems, it is needed for those who want to utilize the online service and have multiple Nintendo Accounts on a single console. There's some good news and some bad news. It sounds like they will indeed have a Virtual Console-esque type of thing but it is being called “Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online.” No details yet on whether we will get titles from other Nintendo consoles as well.

It could be that NES and other classic games only make an appearance via the Nintendo Switch subscription service.

After a lot of waiting and wondering, Nintendo Switch fans have finally been offered some more solid details on the Nintendo Switch's online service before it launches in September of this year. At present, Nintendo's wording ("all members of the group will have access to Nintendo Switch Online") implies that we will.

"There are now no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems", said a spokesperson to stop the hype. At launch, previously announced games Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros. Nintendo will offer Individual memberships at $3.99/month, or you can bundle your usage for $7.99/3 months, or grab a yearly subscription for $19.99. So, while the games are only available for subscribers, players don't need to play them online... or be connected online. The Nintendo Switch Online service will expand existing offerings in the Switch online space.

The Japanese gaming giant has also revealed its pricing for the service, which starts at £3.49 a month but can also be bought in three-month batches for £6.99 and for an entire year for £17.99.

The other 10 will be announced soon, Nintendo is promising, with more added "on a regular basis".

But the biggest additions of the Nintendo Switch Online come in the form of the Nintendo Entertainment System compilation and cloud saves. Online NES Games are interesting with potential for more system is exciting.

First off, the classic games. Designed along the lines of PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold, this membership is quite cheap, as it will cost just $20 for an entire year.
