Nintendo Switch Online Service does not guarantee shootback backups if membership of the service expires. Nintendo Entertainment System game free with pay service requires once a week check in to play offline. We do not want to know the full list of games that require the service to play online or any games that support the cloud save for the launch of the service next week.
While Thursday's Nintendo Direct did not provide much new information about paid Nintendo Switch Online Services, digging through the official website and more support sites, revealed some new important information.
Save Data Cloud Backup
Nintendo's paid online service includes the ability to make a backup of data storage for most Nintendo Switch games. That's the only way a person can transfer games saves between devices. Nintendo said storage data could be accessed from any Nintendo Switch console by logging in with a user's Nintendo account and downloading the data.
These are created automatically, but Nintendo said that each game has the ability to allow users to adjust when and if data is stored in the cloud.
Starting September 18, when the service is launched, games that require a Nintendo Switch Online membership for online games will be identified in the Nintendo eShop and in the game product information at http: //www.nintendo.com. Additional online features (such as Nintendo Switch Online app and Save Data Cloud backup compatibility) are also displayed there. Future games, Nintendo said, will show this information on the back of the box.
Nintendo also notes that it can not "guarantee" that slide data is stored after a "longer period" from when a membership has been terminated and local storage data backup remains unsupported on the switch, although it may appear as it may change in the future .
"While we have no extra information about this subject, please be assured that we carefully listen to our customer feedback," the company writes on a support page. "We are constantly working on ways to further develop the experience of using the system.
Individual plans for Nintendo Switch Online cost around $ 20 a year, but a family plan – supporting up to eight accounts – only runs $ 35 for a year . This is how the plan works.
A member of the family plan must be set as an administrator and they are the ones who can add other people to the account, and it seems that everyone can be added to a family, even if they do not live in the same The administrator can remove and add family members whenever they want it. If you remove a family member, you immediately remove all the Nintendo Switch Online benefits to the member, including the backed up stocks. Also, if the administrator decides to close the membership , everyone in the group is out of luck. Nintendo notes that everyone does not have to live in the same household to be a family member, but that a person can only be in a "family lie "at a time. The administrator also seems to have the ability to transfer admin permissions to other members, but only one person can hold them at a time.
Nintendo Entertainment System Games
One of the better benefits of online service is access to a library of NES games with additional online games. The service includes 20 games at launch, with new games added regularly. But there is a little more to the plan than Nintendo has talked about.
For example, the games can only be played for seven days offline before you have to check in on your membership, according to Nintendo. NES games also support online games that either allow two players at the same time or rotates in single player games. Nintendo also notes that "When you play online, you can show a hand-held cursor on your friend's screen. Use it to give tips or point to strategic places. You can even pat to congratulate them."
Smartphone app , which also requires a Nintendo Switch Online membership, allows players to speak under NES games as well.
Finally, Nintendo describes what appears to be the full release plan for NES games in 2018.
Upon launch, players will have access to:
- Donkey Kong

The paid service will support online games for gaming like "Splatoon 2", "Arms", "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", "Mario Tennis Aces" and "Sushi Striker: The Way of Sishido." This means that the free online game enjoyed by any game will go away. Nintendo has not yet published a complete list, which games, in addition to those listed here, will require a subscription to play online. The company said it would publish that information on September 18th. It noted that "Fortnite" will not require a subscription to play online and "Arena of Valor" publisher Tencent said that the game will not either.
Offer  Nintendo said that membership will also include agreements. So far, the company has only noted two such agreements. One is the ability to purchase a pair of wireless NES controllers. The other mentioned members get download codes for special equipment in "Splatoon 2."
The service comes with a seven-day free trial for all Nintendo account holders when the service starts. Nintendo said it plans to discuss more details about the features and pricing of Nintendo Switch Online during a Nintendo Direct on Thursday. The official website for the service shows that it will cost $ 4 for a month, $ 8 for three months and $ 20 for a year. A family member, who supports up to seven others in a family group, will run for $ 35 for a year.
Some online features will also remain free, including Nintendo eShop, Friend Registration and Administration, Sharing Social Network Screens, Nintendo Switch Parental Controls, System and Software Updates, and Nintendo Switch News.
