Nintendo Switch Online services detailed

Nintendo Switch Online services detailed

It should also allow you to easily jump between consoles and pick up your progress, but Nintendo simply say, "Details about this feature will be available before the paid service launches in September". It will initially include 20 games with more being added regularly. Each game will also include voice chat support through Nintendo Switch Online app, "pass the controller" option, and the ability to watch your friends play single player games online.

There's no sign of anything about voice chat, although the existing Nintendo Switch Online, which is now used only for Splatoon 2, is advertised as one of the features. This will allow players to back up their saves to cloud storage. We'll get more details, like the next ten classic games, closer to the system's September launch. Subscribers will have the save data for most of their games stored online, which will be useful in case the Nintendo Switch is lost or broken or if a new Nintendo Switch is used. Due to this, Nintendo announced that the online service would be free until they were ready to announce a paid plan. Nintendo has gone official with most of the details of the service, and it is indeed much cheaper than similar offerings from Microsoft and Sony.

"There are a variety of ways in which classic games from Nintendo and other publishers are made available on Nintendo Switch, such as through Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online, Nintendo eShop or as packaged collections", the Nintendo spokesperson told Kotaku.

Paying for an online Switch subscription will also let you take multiplayer games like Splatoon 2, Arms, and Mario Kart 8 online.
