  • Fortnite Nintendo Switch UPDATE Ninja gives his verdict on Epic's Battle Royale port

Last month it was reported that plans of Nintendo's online service was expected to be revealed this month, and sure enough it has as Nintendo has since published details about the upcoming online service on its website.

It's A Meme, Mario!

Not all games will require NSO to play online - it seems that all Nintendo first and second party titles (Splatoon 2, ARMS, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, etc.) will absolutely require it, but it may vary. These will include classics like "The Legend of Zelda", "Mario Bros.", "Balloon Fight", "Donkey Kong", and many others. Nintendo says that in September, members will get access to 20 games, with more games added on a regular basis. While the Family Membership does allow access across different systems, it is needed for those who want to utilize the online service and have multiple Nintendo Accounts on a single console.

The Nintendo Online Service also launches with a selection of classic NES games, which is flawless if you failed to get your hands on a NES Classic Mini.

Nintendo will announce further details about Nintendo Switch Online in the lead up to the service's launch in September.

Considering its wild success and its age in the market, it's nearly unbelievable that the Nintendo Switch's accompanying Online Service hasn't launched yet.

While Nintendo hasn't revealed much about how it will work - though has promised more will be revealed closer to the September launch - Nintendo Switch Online will also feature a Cloud Save component to store your game progress data on the company's servers. NES-Nintendo Switch Online is a collection of classic NES titles and will be included in any of the subscriptions shown above. There's more value for committing to a longer time period, though, as three months will cost $7.99, and a whole year for $19.99.

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. There will be 20 NES games at launch and some of them will be playable online either competitively or co-cooperatively.

Additionally, those with a premium Nintendo Network account will gain access to cloud saves for data storage.

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