Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers Announced for Switch’s Online Members

  • Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

After the one-week trial, Nintendo Switch Online will cost players either $3.99/£3.49 monthly or $19.99/£17.99 annually.

After teasing its arrival for what feels like a lifetime, Nintendo has finally confirmed its Switch Online subscription plan will launch in just a few days on September 18, 2018.


Nintendo has been drip-feeding details about the service for months, starting with confirmation that subscribers will have access to classic NES games with additional modern features such as online play and voice chat. Another is a download code for Splatoon 2 in-game gear. I'd also recommend the cloud saves for those of you with massive completionist save files (looking at you, Breath of the Wild), so you don't have to worry about them being lost for some reason. Super Mario Bros. and forthcoming Excitebike and Ice Climber games. Native voice chat was incorporated into the port of Fortnite, so we know it's at least possible with the Switch.

Will you be signing up for Switch Online once it debuts on September 18th? There are options for both individual and family memberships (up to 8 users). This probably won't be a big deal for a most people, but if you've got multiple Nintendo Accounts linked to multiple Switch user accounts, you'll definitely want to make sure that everything is in order ahead of September 18.
