With only weeks until the Nintendo Switch Online service launches in the second half of September, we wanted to send you a reminder about all the great features this subscription-based service offers.
With a Nintendo Switch Online membership, you will have access to:
Online play in games like Splatoon 2, ARMS, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Tennis Aces.
Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online, a selection of classic NES games like Super Mario Bros. 3, The Legend of Zelda and Dr. Mario with newly added online play.
Save Data Cloud backup, which lets you save your game data online for easy access in compatible games. This makes it easy to retrieve your game data if you lose your system or start using a new one.
Plus, enhance your online experience with features available through the Nintendo Switch smartphone app and receive special offers.
Additional details about Nintendo Switch Online, including the exact launch date, will be announced closer to launch.
Please note that Nintendo Switch owners won't automatically become members when the service starts, so they will need to purchase an individual or family membership in order to avoid disruption of their online play in compatible games.
For pricing information, and to pre-order a 3- or 12-month individual membership from select retailers so you can be ready to go once the service launches, visit https://www.nintendo.com/switch/online-service/pricing.
