Nintendo just announced “Nintendo Switch Online.” In Nintendo’s own words
“Nintendo Switch Online is a paid service that give members access to online play in compatible games, a selection of NES™ games, extra features for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app, and more.”
What I heard was “blah, blah, blah, a selection of NES™ games.” Without the mention of NES games, I probably wouldn’t have paid attention. The service is set to launch in September, and when it does 20 classic NES games will be part of the service. Nintendo announced that ten of 20 titles that will be available during launch are:
- Donkey Kong
- Mario Bros.
- Super Mario Bros.
- Super Mario Bros. 3
- The Legend of Zelda
- Dr. Mario
- Ice Climber
- Balloon Fight
What makes this more interesting is online play.
