Nintendo has 'no plans' for a Virtual Console on Switch

Nintendo Switch Online services detailed

More than a year after the console launched, Nintendo Switch users are finally getting the online features they've been waiting for.

It's A Meme, Mario!

Games that will support online play, for now, include Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, Mario Tennis Aces and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido. Nintendo will offer Individual memberships at $3.99/month, or you can bundle your usage for $7.99/3 months, or grab a yearly subscription for $19.99.

Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online: Members will have access to Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online, a compilation of classic NES games. All in all, nothing too major from today's announcement, other than confirmation that social functionality including chat will be handled by a separate Nintendo Switch Online App for both iOS and Android devices.

Destiny 2's Warmind Expansion Drops Tomorrow
This is your XP-based level we're talking about here, which Destiny players know is only a small measure of your Guardian's power. Furthermore, the new Warmind expansion was made possible by the help of devs over at Vicarious Visions.

That's about all we know about Nintendo Switch Online at the moment.

While Switch Online will rid of the ability to play online multiplayer games for free, Nintendo is assuring users that not all online features will require a subscription from September.

Instead, it seems that any retro games that will come to Switch will be included as a part of the Online service fee, purchasable through the eShop or released as full collections.

Nintendo will be offering up 20 NES games at launch, more games (and presumably platforms) will be added in the future.

Nintendo Online Service will be available from September, where it will cost as little as £3.49 a month in the UK.

Easily the most requested feature since the Nintendo Switch launched, Save Data Cloud Backup is exactly as it sounds (despite a mouthful title). Alternately, there's a family plan for $35 that covers eight different accounts.

Not everything will have multiplayer, but some will. Nintendo also notes that some will enable you to take turns with your friends - just like when you played Super Mario Bros. "There are now no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems", a Nintendo spokesperson wrote to Kotaku via e-mail. Subscribers will also gain access to special offers that are only available for those who use the Nintendo Switch Online service. Alternatively, if you have multiple people with multiple Nintendo Network accounts living in the same house, there's a Nintendo Network family plan available for $34.99.

Scattered storms Saturday, cloudy but dry Sunday
The warm sector can have severe storms, but moving through in the morning makes widespread severe weather unlikely right now. Scattered showers will be around Saturday afternoon and evening, with the highest chance of rain near Interstate 81.
