Nintendo Says No to Switch Virtual Console, But Outlines Online Service

Nintendo Switch Nintendo Says No to Switch Virtual Console, But Outlines Online Service

As is the NES - Nintendo Switch Online feature, which will let owners play some old-school classics on the Switch for a limited time. This could be bad news for those that were hoping for a more chat-oriented app direct in the system.

Paid membership to the Nintendo Switch Online service will be required when users want to play online starting this September.

Nintendo has announced the first official details for their Nintendo Switch Online service, which we now know will go live in September 2018. Allowing so much flexibility with classic NES games makes the Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online feature worth the small price of admission.

Visit the Nintendo website for more information about the Nintendo Switch Online service.

It's now unknown if Nintendo will add other platforms to Nintendo Switch Online's playable library of games, but hopefully they'll have more to say about the service at this year's E3 Expo.

Only half of the titles in the initial lineup have revealed thus far, but they consist of some of Nintendo's best-known NES games, including Super Mario Bros. Nintendo also revealed a new "Family Membership" option, which costs US$34.99 for one year, and allows eight different users to use the service even on different systems.

The concept of Nintendo's Virtual Console will not carry over to the Switch. Those games include Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros. So, while the games are only available for subscribers, players don't need to play them online... or be connected online. Nintendo says it will share more details at a later date regarding what specific titles will require an online subscription to play online.

Additionally, those with a premium Nintendo Network account will gain access to cloud saves for data storage. A one month membership will cost $3.99, while a three-month membership will cost $7.99. Family memberships are only offered on an annual basis. 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.
