Nintendo Switch: Classic games launching in 2018

Nintendo Unveils Switch Online Gaming Service Xbox E3 Survey Asks If Gamers Are Interested in Nintendo Switch, SNES Classic Edition

If you choose not to pay the subscription, you'll still have access to Nintendo's eShop, as well as the ability to add new friends, manage your friend list, share screenshots, and access to the Parental Controls app on the Switch. Some fans were rejoicing that online play on the Nintendo Switch will now be free until 2018.

The full online service won't officially launch until 2018, almost a full year after the console launch. In the meantime, online play on Nintendo Switch will be free, and once the trial period ends the subscription service will run you $20 a year. For one, they touched on online play on the Nintendo Switch.

The service, simply called "Nintendo Switch Online" at this point, will let players organize and play online multiplayer matches while voice chatting with their friends using a smartphone app. 3, Balloon Fight and Dr. Mario will be available on the service.

According to Eurogamer, Microsoft sent out an official Xbox Live Rewards survey that asked people what they thought of multiple consoles, including the "Nintendo SNES Classic Edition". Paying $20 a year for an online service is something that most owners won't complain about. But a week after that bombshell, a report claimed that Nintendo is working on a "SNES Mini", giving new life to its much-loved Super Nintendo Entertainment System of yesteryear.

You'll be able to play compatible co-op and competitive games online by signing in with your Nintendo Account.

The Nintendo Switch might not be the most traditionally powerful console released over the last five years, but it is quickly staking a claim for the most innovative. A three-month membership will go for $7.99 and a one-month subscription can be had for $3.99. Nintendo tells Kotaku that this library will initially consist of NES games, but that "Super NES games continue to be under consideration".

Be honest: As convenient as a proprietary solution for voice chat on Switch would be, you likely keep your phone within arm's reach, if not even closer. Nintendo didn't say why it pushed back its availability to 2018.
