Yesterday Nintendo announced the delay, price and some more details on the Nintendo Online Service. You can catch up on everything Nintendo Online on Switch right here. Today the big N released more details about how Nintendo Classic games work on the Switch.
Once registered for Nintendo Online, players will be able to enjoy Classic Nintendo games on the Switch for $20 a year. These classic games are enhanced for the hybrid console, and will all feature online play as well. Nintendo said ” Subscribers will get to download a compilation of classic titles with added online play, such as Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Fight and Dr. Mario. “
However, Nintendo Classic is not virtual console and is not expected to replace Virtual Console on the Nintendo Switch. This paid service lets Nintendo Switch owners enjoy online multiplayer gaming as well as a dedicated smartphone app that connects to your Nintendo Switch system and helps you connect with friends for online play sessions. The dedicated smartphone app is set to be released this summer as a free trial period.
