Thankfully, that doesn't appear to be the case, as some of the platform's free-to-play titles lack a disclaimer stating that they need to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play. That being said it is still something to get excited about.

While both Microsoft and Sony have shown the value proposition of their services over the years, Nintendo's experience in the online space has lagged.

I love all things Nintendo, especially the GameCube era and Animal Crossing! Players can also have an access to the games of Nintendo Entertainment System like; the legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros 3, and Dr. Mario along with some newly included online play.

Right now, we know for sure that " Splatoon 2", "ARMS", "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", "Mario Tennis Aces.", and "Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido" will require the subscription, and other games will "vary". The service will launch with 20 NES titles and more will be added regularly once the service launches.

The more important features, though, are the cloud saves, which means we'll be able to save our games online for access anywhere.

For more information about Nintendo Switch Online, please visit the official Nintendo Switch Online website.

These will be releasing in Japan this October, with pre-orders hopefully going up soon on Play-Asia. This is significantly much cheaper than the $60 per year that people have to pay for Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus. Otherwise, you can pay $19.99 Dollars for an individual 12-month membership, $7.99 for three months for $3.99 for a month.
