Price, 20 NES Games, Cloud Saves, And More

Thankfully Nintendo is finally introducing the option to upload saves to the online cloud just in case anything happens to your beloved console.

Online Play: Something we've also known about for some time, Nintendo Switch Online membership gives you access to online features in games. 3, Ice Climber, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Tennis, Soccer, and Mario Bros. Friends can even watch their friends play these single-player games online. It will also be possible to play these games offline.

Switch's online service will launch this September, though an exact date has yet to be confirmed.

More importantly, the Switch Online membership will offer free games on a regular basis. 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. The Virtual Console has been a mainstay on Nintendo consoles since the Wii, offering a one-stop digital store for classic titles.

This means that games like Splatoon 2, Arms, Mario Tennis Aces, Sushi Striker and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, will all require a subscription to play online.

"There are now no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems", a Nintendo spokesperson said.
