10 May 2018

There will be 20 titles at launch and more will be added over time. Today, the company finally divulged more specifics, including talk of much-needed cloud saves.

Will you be purchasing Nintendos online service when it launches in September? Albeit through the Nintendo Switch online smartphone app.

You are not required to purchase NSO services to access the eShop, manage friends, share screenshots/videos, or update your system. The online services do not extend to other profiles on a single Switch console. This is essentially a compilation of 20 classic NES games that can be played online.

While many had hoped that the cloud backup feature would be a free service, Nintendo is sweetening the deal with these NES games.
