Cloud Saves, NES Games with online and more

In the United States, the Nintendo Switch Online service will go for $3.99 a month, though you could opt to pay for three months at a time for $7.99 or for the whole year at $19.99.

Where the free online gravity train for current online Nintendo Switch games will come to an end.

What's more is that there will be 20 NES games made available at the launch of the premium network service, all of which will have online multiplayer enabled. "Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time".

Launch titles include the 10 classic NES games listed below, with an additional 10 set to be announced at a later date. 3 and Donkey Kong.

In response to an audience question, he also said that bitcoin and other forms of cryptocurrency "will come to bad endings". Winklevoss along with also his brother Cameron had $1 1 million in bitcoin at $120 a coin in April 2013 .

With the Save Data Cloud Backup feature, all save data for most Switch games will be stored online.

"There are now no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems", the email stated. Online play for certain games is free for the moment, but will also end up locked behind this service once it launches in September. The addition of cloud saves is a very welcome addition, as all Switch save data is tied to the console, prohibiting owners from transferring their data between consoles even in cases where their console breaks. Nintendo will also offer a family bundle for $34.99 that allows up to eight people to use the same subscription. There will also be the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app, which Nintendo says will "enhance the online experience for compatible games through voice chat and other features". In a way this is similar to what Microsoft offers with its Games with Gold feature, although admittedly Nintendo's offerings are considerably older. A monthly subscription will cost $3.99, meanwhile three months of membership will cost $7.99. Initially 20 games will be included with online functionality for multiplayer - including the likes of Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

If this leaves you concerned about playing classics on the Switch, Nintendo is confident you'll still be able to do so, it will just be through other means that aren't Virtual Console.

Nintendo has finally shared more information about its upcoming Nintendo Switch online subscription platform.
