Additionally, 20 different NES classics will be available for play with additional online features, even for single-player titles like The Legend of Zelda. 3, and Tennis. Best of all, all games will include a Spectator Mode, as well as online competitive or co-op multiplayer (if the original game offered multiplayer options, of course). The collection will initially include 20 games, with more added on a regular basis. As is the NES - Nintendo Switch Online feature, which will let owners play some old-school classics on the Switch for a limited time.

Are cloud saves and the other features enough to convince you guys to pay for another online service?

Nintendo Switch Online, as the subscription is called, will go live this September. Nintendo has gone official with most of the details of the service, and it is indeed much cheaper than similar offerings from Microsoft and Sony. Games specifically mentioned are Splatoon 2, Arms, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido.

In a news post on the Nintendo site earlier today, it revealed that the Nintendo Switch Online service will launch in September 2018.

We will share information on this topic at a later date.

This'll be the first time that Nintendo has ever charged for playing online, with the service due to cost £3.49 a month, £6.99 for three months, or £17.99 for a year.

Magnitude 5.5 quake rattles NW Pakistan, 9 children injured
Earlier on Wednesday, a magnitude 5.1 quake rattled parts of eastern Pakistan, near the border with Afghanistan. Officials say people fled their offices and homes in panic and were reciting verses from Islam's holy book.

As for family sharing, Nintendo said that you will be able to create a family group starting May 15, which can hold up to eight accounts, including child accounts. This would have to be one of the most requested features fans have been wanting for the Switch, so it is great to see that coming.

Individual memberships can only be used by the Nintendo Account holder who purchased the membership. So if you want to backup your Nintendo Switch account, you need the Nintendo Switch Online service subscription.

Nintendo has largely shying away from online gaming at the past, focusing its efforts on mobile and family-orientated gaming adventures.

Having the one year membership at a $40 value is astronomical and gamechanging.

Nintendo confirmed the previously announced Nintendo Switch Online price of $19.99 per year.
