  • The Nintendo Switch Is Finally Getting Cloud Save Backups Shannon Grixti

Although Nintendo Switch Online paid service won't launch until September, the website states that online play for compatible games and the app will be free until then.

Nintendo's Online Service for Switch is planned to launch in September of this year. Each game will also include voice chat support through Nintendo Switch Online app, "pass the controller" option, and the ability to watch your friends play single player games online.

Nintendo Switch Online, the firm's unimaginatively-named subscription-based online service, will bring cloud saving to users of the console for the first time, Nintendo announced on Monday. The service makes no mention of a Virtual Console or of classic games from any of Nintendo's other systems. A family membership will also work across different Switch systems because it will be tied to the users' Nintendo Account and not the hardware itself.

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




Only half of the titles in the initial lineup have revealed thus far, but they consist of some of Nintendo's best-known NES games, including Super Mario Bros. Individual memberships are priced at $3.99 per month if you purchase one month at a time, or $19.99 for a full year.

Nintendo promised early May for details on the Switch's online service and boy have they delivered. The NES Library will initially launch with access to 20 games, and more will be added on a regular basis. Those games include Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

Are cloud saves and the other features enough to convince you guys to pay for another online service? Online NES Games are interesting with potential for more system is exciting. With the release window set for September 2018, Nintendo has finally revealed all of the details surrounding the system including price, subscription models, online services, and more. This acts as a sort of Netflix for games and will slowly cycle through Nintendo's catalogue of classic games. But the games usually had some useful modern features included and offered a way for Nintendo fans to access the games they loved most from years gone by.
