NINTENDO Nintendo Switch Online Launches September 19th- Nintendo confirms free trial and more

Some new controllers are making their Switch debut, but they'll look plenty familiar for everyone who knows Nintendo. Individual membership is separated into three tiers: $3.99 for one month; $7.99 for three months and $19.99 for 12 months. What you do get is a list of 20 NES titles, with more to be added to the list over the following months. You can make use of a seven-day free trial by signing up on the Nintendo eShop starting September 18.

They can be played locally and online with other people using the Joy-Con, but the original formfactor will no doubt feel and work a lot better with them.

Some existing titles such as Splatoon 2 have received significant updates, too.
