You’re right to wonder what NESNintendo Switch Online means for Virtual Console, and it looks like the Switch definitely isn’t getting it, at least not in the foreseeable future. Originally intending to launch back in 2017, Nintendo hasn’t said much on its plans after officially revealing Nintendo Switch Online earlier this year. But before that happens, Nintendo is giving Switch owners an idea what they will be signing up for when they pay for a subscription. So you’ll be able to play classic NES titles with two-player online multiplayer support on your Nintendo Switch, either in mobile mode or TV mode. Online multiplayer games will require a subscription to the service to allow co-op or competitive play.

Nintendo’s Switch is the most innovative and addicting gaming console to ever be introduced. Individual memberships are available in 1-, 3-, and 12-month increments, while all family memberships are for 12 months. There is also a Family membership, but you only have the 12 month option, for $34.99.
