The console is already a smash, and finally fleshing out the online features is the next major step.

Nintendo Switch Online will also allow backup save-data for most games, and utilize additional features for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.

The main features of the service are online play, cloud saves, access to a library of NES titles, usage of the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app, and special offers (which are now unspecified).

So, what will it cost?

The Japanese gaming giant has also revealed its pricing for the service, which starts at £3.49 a month but can also be bought in three-month batches for £6.99 and for an entire year for £17.99. Allowing so much flexibility with classic NES games makes the Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online feature worth the small price of admission. However just to recap, the service will cost gamers $19.99 for one whole year, but alternatively they can purchase monthly subscriptions at $3.99 a month or $7.99 in blocks of 3 months.

Nintendo will be offering up 20 NES games at launch, more games (and presumably platforms) will be added in the future.

And although its full launch was delayed several times, Nintendo Switch Online will be with us soon enough. Alternatively, if you have multiple people with multiple Nintendo Network accounts living in the same house, there's a Nintendo Network family plan available for $34.99. Nintendo Switch Online enables you to play certain games online with your friends or with others. So you'll be able to play classic NES titles with two-player online multiplayer support on your Nintendo Switch, either in mobile mode or TV mode. Among the announced titles are, Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

One of the biggest changes coming to the Nintendo Switch in September this year, is that the online component will no longer be free.

Currently, players are stuck with using the Nintendo Switch Online App if they want to use voice chat. These include The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, and Super Mario Bros.
