Nintendo Switch Online Service Will Include 20 NES Games, Save Data Cloud

"You can compete (or cooperate) online with friends, share your screen, or pass the controller, depending on the game", reads information about the Switch's online services on Nintendo's website.

The appearance of NES games, however, had many hoping that we'd soon see the return of Nintendo's virtual console. For example, online play in games like ARMS and Splatoon 2 are only available via the service. 3, alongside Donkey Kong, Ice Climber, The Legend of Zelda, Mario Bros., Soccer, Super Mario Bros. and Tennis.

With the Save Data Cloud Backup feature, all save data for most Switch games will be stored online. If you want to play supported games online in co-op or competitive modes, you will need to buy a membership. These will be able to be played online with other players, which makes them more fully featured than previous Virtual Console ports.

Nintendo is also offering a Family Membership, which enables up to eight different Nintendo accounts to use the service, which costs £31.49 a year. This feature will allow Switch owners to easily save their data onto Nintendo's cloud for easy access in case owners lose, break, or purchase a new Nintendo Switch.

The plan pricing for Nintendo Switch online only covers one user account on a Switch.

Nintendo Switch Online App: The Nintendo Switch Online App, which can be downloaded now on iOS and Android devices, allows friends to voice chat with friends. And, about 18 months on from its original release, the Nintendo Switch's online service is finally due to launch in September.

The Nintendo Online Service also launches with a selection of classic NES games, which is ideal if you failed to get your hands on a NES Classic Mini. At the service's launch, 20 games will be made available, including Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros. While it's definitely disappointing the Switch won't be getting its own Virtual Console, it doesn't seem like Nintendo has completely ruled out the ability for Switch owners to experience the classics.
