The Nintendo Switch Is Finally Getting Cloud Save Backups Shannon Grixti

Originally intending to launch back in 2017, Nintendo hasn't said much on its plans after officially revealing Nintendo Switch Online earlier this year.

It's A Meme, Mario!

However, if that is not enough of a reason to purchase NSO, this September, consider that you won't be able to play online multiplayer for games like Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, Mario Tennis Aces, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, and many upcoming games without it. When the service launches, 20 of these games will be available at launch. If you own a Switch, you do not need an NES Classic anymore, due for re-release in summer 2018.

It could be that NES and other classic games only make an appearance via the Nintendo Switch subscription service.

It seems Nintendo is still planning to go ahead with its threatened online service, an equivalent to Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

Neither the payment nor the liability to Cohen was disclosed on the Trump campaign or the president's financial disclosures. Giuliani, who said he had other TV appearances lined up to give away secret information, was then looped by Cohen.

The Nintendo Switch Online Service, like other home console online subscriptions, will give players an option of how long their membership will be.

Those on the Switch can at last prepare for Nintendo's online service which has been in the works for quite some time now.

There will be 10 more games announced in the future, but for the first time some of these NES games will have online capabilities. There will be some exceptions to this, not every game will require the online service to play online. Subscription to Nintendo Switch Online is relatively cheap though, costing AU$5.95 / NZ$6.55 for one month, AU$11.95 / NZ$13.15 for three months, or AU$29.95 / NZ$32.95 for a 12 month subscription.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about Nintendo Switch Online is that the service unlocks access to a library of NES game with added newly-online multiplayer. This classic catalogue is a strong sign for those who feel as though the loss of the virtual console means all hope is gone, though, when asked again by Kotaku to comment on rumored GameCube titles, Nintendo had "nothing to announce on the topic".

Nintendo's Switch is the most innovative and addicting gaming console to ever be introduced. Apart from the ability to play online, it will also allow gamers to have their saved files backed up in the cloud, so they can access them on whatever system they want. Each different family member can use the full Nintendo Switch Online privileges on different consoles or even the same Switch. Note that Nintendo says, "for most" Switch games implying that at least some titles won't be able to support cloud saves and there is no indication what games might not support the feature now.
