Today, the new Nintendo Switch Online service was launched, a paid subscription offer that gives players access to the Nintendo multiplayer, as well as other bonuses.
This includes new NES Classic games, which are part of NSO, and there are already a number of titles to choose from.
The Nintendo Online service has been introduced with a selection of classic NES games, which is perfect if you can not get a NES Classic Mini.
"Members have access to Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online, a compilation of classic NES games," the company explains.
"The collection initially contains 20 games and new ones will be added regularly."
And although the classic gameplay is intact, they are also updated for the Nintendo switch experience.
This includes added online connectivity so that friends can co-operate together without having to share the same bank.
The launch of games includes Ice Climber, The Legend of Zelda, Balloon Fight, Soccer, Tennis, Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros., Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Donkey Kong.
And the good news is that more NES games are planned for the launch in the future.
According to Nintendo, each month until the end of 2018 will contain several classic games to play, each with their own HD support.
And the list is not filled with obscure titles, with top titles such as the Original Legend of Zelda and Ninja Gaiden.
In total, it seems that every month at least three games will be included, although it is worthwhile to see what happens in October.
As with Xbox Live and PlayStation Plus, Nintendo Switch Online is the new subscription service of the company.
Nintendo Switch Online is available for £ 3.49 per month in the UK, £ 6.99 for three months or £ 17.99 per year.
There is even a 12-month family membership available for £ 31.49. By creating a family group, up to eight people can share a membership, even on different consoles.
We now know that these new Nintendo Switch Online privileges also come with certain provisions.
Subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online comes with the requirement to log in every week to maintain NES games.
The latest information was available on the official Nintendo website, which confirms that a fixed login schedule is required.
"Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online can be played up to seven days without an Internet connection", says the Nintendo FAQ.
"If your Nintendo Entertainment System can not start – Nintendo Switch Online, try to connect to the internet again."
Adding Nintendo NES games as part of the benefits of an online subscription was a great idea, but this can ruin the experience for some.
