Nintendo Switch Online Requires Weekly Check-In To Play NES Games

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate adds Isabelle

The online service, which also includes access to (previously free) online multiplayer and the ability to back up game save data on the cloud, is $4 for one month, $8 for three months, and $20 for a full year. Sony locks its cloud saves behind the PS+ membership but they are kept for around 6 months or so.

As we previously reported, many games will not support cloud saves even with Nintendo Switch Online, including Splatoon 2, Pokémon: Let's Go, NBA 2K19, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Dead Cells, and Dark Souls Remastered. Today, however, we're learning some new things about the service - more specifically what players will need to do if they want to keep their cloud saves or keep playing NES games. Ultimate Set, a bundle including a digital copy of the game complete with Super Smash Bros. The Switch versions of these games have been updated to support online play, which is a nice perk, and Nintendo says that the library will keep growing over time. If you are unable to launch Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online, then please try connecting to the internet again.

Nintendo has announced that Super Smash Bros Ultimate is getting its own Limited Edition Nintendo Switch. That's going to be a bit of a pain if you are taking your Switch on holiday. How Nintendo plans to actually enforce these restrictions, I'm not sure. Have these newly-revealed restrictions changed your mind? That doesn't appear to be the case with the Switch unless Nintendo clarifies further in the future.
