Little Nightmares Complete Edition Nintendo Switch Trailer is Here

At launch, Nintendo Switch Online will feature the NES - NSO, a collection of classic games you've known and loved for generations.

And the good news doesn't stop there, because these games will also be playable online. Online play for certain games is free for the moment, but will also end up locked behind this service once it launches in September.

Nintendo says that "every classic game" will feature some sort of online functionality.

Snyder's wife allegedly told police the slaughter began after she ran out of her home after being held there over the weekend. Officers breached the front door at 11 p.m., with Snyder still on the phone with negotiators, prompting Snyder to hang up.

Nintendo has shared more details on the service, which is due to launch in September, including the classic games that will be available on-demand on the service. It's unclear if Nintendo plans to only release retro Nintendo Entertainment System titles for the console as part of its online services. "There are now no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems", a Nintendo spokesperson wrote to Kotaku via e-mail. For now, Nintendo has announced that subscribers will be able to play Balloon Fight, Donkey Kong, Dr. Mario, Ice Climber, The Legend of Zelda, Mario Bros., Soccer, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. Apart from the ability to play online, it will also allow gamers to have their saved files backed up in the cloud, so they can access them on whatever system they want. 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.

Nintendo promised early May for details on the Switch's online service and boy have they delivered.

Another feature that should intrigue Switch owners is Save Data Cloud Backup, which offers cloud saves for various Nintendo Switch games.

At the moment, the only retro games available through the upcoming Online service are NES games, which is slightly more limited than many fans were expecting.

Online NES Games are interesting with potential for more system is exciting.
