Subscription service: Switch Online from September 19 Nintendo asks online players to settle

From September 19 you can no longer play online for free with the Nintendo Switch. At this moment the new subscription service is started: Nintendo Switch Online. Sony (Playstation Plus) and Microsoft (Xbox Live Gold) already have to pay monthly to gamble online. Now Nintendo is also charged a fee. BILD introduces the service and benefits and says what the whole thing should cost.

Free NES games included in the service

The new online service from Nintendo is exclusively designed for the switch. With the old Wii U and the 3DS family you can keep playing online for free. The Japanese offer a trial period of seven days for all users, after which the service costs 3.99 euros per month.

Nintendo launches twenty NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) classics, which are included in monthly fees. These games can sometimes be played in the local multiplayer with two joy-cons or via the internet or against each other. Access to the titles is only possible while the subscription is active.

Count on the NES starting titles:

  • "Mario Bros."
  • "Super Mario Bros."
  • "Super Mario Bros. 3"
  • "Dr. Mario"
  • "The Legend of Zelda"
  • "Donkey Kong"

Prices for Nintendo Switch Online

  • 3.99 euros / month
  • 7.99 euros / 3 months
  • 19.99 euros / 12 months
  • 34.99 euro / 12 months for family membership (up to eight accounts)

As active subscriber there is also cloud storage for scores. However, not every title supports this function. Members will soon be able to order the new NES controllers, which are compatible with the Nintendo Switch, and thus play the classics in style.

The free online switch app (iOS / Android) offers more features depending on the game. For example, "Splatoon 2" displays online statistics and new devices can be ordered through the app in the game.

Which titles can be played online with the service?

  • "Splatoon 2"
  • "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe"
  • "ARMS"
  • "Super Mario Party"
  • "Fifa 18"
  • "Fifa 19"
