Nintendo Switch Online Will Launch Next Week Along With A Bonus of Classic NES Games For Subscribers

Nintendo Switch Online, the paid service on which the company has been working since before the console even reached the stores, is now around the corner as it will roll out next week. According to Nintendo America, the new Nintendo Switch Online service will launch on September 18th. The new service’s launch is expected to be announced today at a new Nintendo Direct event.

According to the information disclosed by the company, the Nintendo Switch Online would come out with a free trial period of seven days, after which it will be necessary to pay for a subscription plan to keep on using the service.

Nintendo Switch Online would offer three subscription plans as follows:

  • 1 month – $3.99;
  • 3 months – $7.99;
  • 1 year – $19.99;

Besides, there will also be a family subscription plan with a limit of 8 different Nintendo accounts and a price of $34.99 per year.

Nintendo Switch Online will come out next week with cloud backup and a welcome pack of classic NES games

“The vast majority of Nintendo Switch games will support cloud backup. However, in certain games, this function would allow, for example, to recover objects that had been exchanged with other players, or to recover an online classification that had been lost. To ensure fair play, cloud backup should not be activated in such games. To ensure that cloud backups cannot be used to unfairly affect online multiplayer classifications, the feature will not be enabled in Splatoon 2,” explained Nintendo.

Besides Splatoon 2, however, titles like Dark Souls Remastered, Dead Cells, FIFA 19 or NBA 2K19, wouldn’t support cloud backup, either.

Nintendo is also preparing a welcome pack of classic NES games, the main novelty of which is that they will have online features. These include Soccer, Tennis, Donkey Kong, Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, Dr. Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros.

However, Nintendo announced its intentions to release new titles occasionally, as these games will be available free of charge but only for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.
