Nintendo Direct set for 9/13, will include Switch Online details

Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Nintendo has a few different help articles centered around Switch firmware update 6.0.0, but the biggest thing you need to know is that once this update has been applied, you won't be able to unlink Nintendo Accounts from their associated Nintendo Switch user accounts.

If you want a classic NES gameplay experience on the Switch, be prepared to shell out $60. Originally set to launch in 2017, Nintendo ended up having to delay the service multiple times before eventually landing on the second half of September. Obviously, it's mostly made up of Nintendo games like Pro Wrestling ("A victor is you!"), Excitebike, Mario Bros., Ice Climber, Dr. Mario and more.

In the Nintendo Direct presentation showing off Nintendo Switch Online, Gradius, Double Dragon, and Mighty Bomb Jack were among the 3rd party games shown for the service. 3, Tecmo Bowl, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Ice Climber, Double Dragon, Gradius, Ice Hockey, Mario Bros., Dr. Mario, River City Ransom, Pro Wrestling and Baseball. I'd also recommend the cloud saves for those of you with massive completionist save files (looking at you, Breath of the Wild), so you don't have to worry about them being lost for some reason.

We still aren't going to be getting a Virtual Console, though the company will be adding 20 NES games to the console, along with the option to play them in co-op.

As for the price, Nintendo Switch Online will cost $3.99 for one month, $7.99 for three months, $19.99 for a year and $34.99 for a family membership, which gives up to eight people to ability to use the service.
