The Nintendo Switches online service will be released in the second half of September, meaning it's only limited time to play games like Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe online without subscription. Players currently enjoy this luxury for free, so coming in September it may seem like having some terrible fun from your hands, using Olt's Nintendo for no reason. Boop.
That said, the service comes with a selection of NES games enabled online, stores backups, and stores connection to the Nintendo Switch smartphone app. The Nintendo Switch Mobile App will continue to be "used to enhance the online experience for compatible games through voice comments and other features," so hopefully, Nintendo invests more hours to improve the fresh chat system.
While Nintendo Switch has supported online multiplayer since its arrival in March 201
When the Nintendo Switch service is active, you need a live subscription to play online multiplayer in paid games like Splatoon 2 and ARMS . However, it does not appear that you need a subscription to join games for free games like Fortnite or Paladins . Finally you can continue playing single-player or local multiplayer games without change.
Nintendo has planned the following price options:
This is about half the price of one-year subscription to Xbox Live ($ 50) and even cheaper than PS Plus ($ 60), but both services currently offer more content for the price .
Nintendo has specifically said that owners will not be automatically charged, so it's not necessary to remove Switch information if you do not. I will not pay for online service when activated. You must choose, probably through a purchase on Switch eShop.
Nintendo has announced that their online service will launch with 10 classic titles, and another 10 will be revealed later. The games are:
The Legend of Zelda
Super Mario Bros
Super Mario Bros. 3
Some games will support screen sharing and controls passes too and more titles will continue to arrive, free as the service grows. This is different from the handful of free, modern monthly games PS Plus and Xbox Live subscribers get.
Critically, Nintendo Switch Online will also have cloud savings, provided you have an active subscription. This is a great blessing for players with hours worth of data on their systems and no way to protect it if the console seems incorrect.
As said, the switch does not allow users to back up memory via USB or other external storage, which both PS4 and Xbox One offer for free. PS4 players can access their skydds via PS Plus, while Xbox One players can access their cloud, saving for free. This means that Nintendo players have to pay to protect their games on the cloud, and that's not the best.
