Nintendo Switch Online solves two MAJOR problems for fans

Nintendo Switch Online solves two MAJOR problems for fans

At launch, Nintendo Switch Online will feature the NES - NSO, a collection of classic games you've known and loved for generations. The Virtual Console was a great way to introduce new people to classic Nintendo games or replay some of your favourite titles from older consoles. Although the Nintendo Switch already supports online play for free, that has so far simply been an extensive "grace period" between the launch of the console and the launch of the service.

The main feature of Nintendo Switch Online is that it allows players the ability to play games with an online component online, with other players, whether in competetive or cooperative play.

There will be 10 more games announced in the future, but for the first time some of these NES games will have online capabilities. The service, which one can't help but compare to the likes of Xbox Live or PS Plus, will of course be a requirement for online gaming on the Switch. There's still no sign of a proper Virtual Console but the titles include Soccer, Tennis, Donkey Kong, Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, Dr. Mario, The Legend Of Zelda, and Super Mario Bros. 3.

Not only will you be able to play these games, but you'll also be able to play them with a friend - even if they aren't multiplayer. Those looking to use more than one account to jump online will have to look into the Family option, which allows up to eight Nintendo accounts to go online for 12 months for $34.99. For example, online play in games like ARMS and Splatoon 2 are only available via the service. The announcement of cloud saves makes this the only official way to backup save data.

New general manager John Dorsey has made a number of moves in trades, free agency and in the draft. Riley predicts success for Mayfield. "It is humbling, but I landed in the right spot, " he said.

And like Nintendo has said from the beginning, it is adapting all of these games to work online.

At the moment, the only retro games available through the upcoming Online service are NES games, which is slightly more limited than many fans were expecting. More details about this will be revealed before the launch.

Nintendo has officially announced new details about the Nintendo Switch Online service, set to launch in September 2018. Both Sony and Microsoft have done the same for several years now, and Nintendo is adding several important features to justify the cost.
