Nintendo Switch Online Members Can Now Pre-Order The NES Controllers

Nintendo Switch Online can be purchased in three ways - by a one-month subscription for $3.99 United States dollars, a three-month subscription for $7.99, and a 12-month subscription for $19.99 USD.

The online library launched with 20 NES games and Nintendo promises that more will be added on a regular basis.

Your primary Switch is the one you're using when you connect your Nintendo Account to the eShop for the first time. There's also a family plan for $34.99 a year that includes up to eight accounts. It also offers cloud data backup, and access to a bunch of classic NES games, including Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, and Double Dragon.

The fingerprint scanner is present on the rear side and the device is backed by a 3300mAh battery with adaptive fast charging. Dutch retailer Belsimpel.nl leaked official pics for the 2018 Galaxy A7 model that appears to have three cameras on the back.

On top of that, those with multiple Nintendo Switch consoles will be able to play their downloaded games on any device as long as they're logged in. The NES controllers can not be used while playing in handheld mode either, so your Switch will need to be in kickstand mode or docked and connected to a TV.

After all, it looked remarkably similar to the system they'd just botched, and with the company's unusual ability to always seem like they're out of touch with what modern gamers want, it was easy to worry that the Switch would arrive, crash, and burn. And it's great to see that Nintendo is finally adding support for more titles. Well now we can all judge for ourselves as Switch online is a go this week. There's a 7-day free trial to enjoy, and the NES games alone make it well worth the money.
