Question So, I mean, Nintendo's online still sucks?

I get just as many connection errors on the switch as I did on the WiiU. More so far, actually. I used to get booted and lagged out a lot playing Mario Kart on the Wii, too, but my connection sucked bad back then.

Yeah, it's still pretty horrid.

Hopefully it's somewhat competent once it's a paid service.

Question

What's the run down of Nintendo's online service once it's switched over to pay scheme?

How much will it cost, and what (if any) perks do you get?

No details yet. Probably will see it fleshed out during their E3 direct.

You can't even send friend invites or messages. It's actually gotten worse believe it or not.

But according to Nintendo the Switch's real online service hasn't launched yet. Nintendo will start charging you for the "better service" this September. But they have graciously allowed their customers to play their current Switch online service completely free of charge.

That is so unbelievably pathetic... especially when you look at how long ago Microsoft, and then Sony, offered those pretty basic features. I'm guessing at the rate Nintendo is going, they'll have cross game chat in 2030.

And that's only because they'll had gone third party by then.

$20 / year.
Free access to some unknown compilation of virtual console games. Probably will be a rotating set, or possibly an ever-expanding collection.

Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will be able to play a wide variety of classic games, including Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Fight and Dr. Mario. More games will be announced at a later date. At launch the classic game library will include NES games. Super NES games continue to be under consideration, but we have nothing further to announce at this time.
