A Nintendo Account can be linked to Nintendo Switch consoles that are not designated as the primary console, however, some functionality differs from when a Nintendo Account is used on a primary console.

Yes, we've played all these games many times before, but Nintendo will regularly add to this library of games, and nine more will be available by the end of the year. Throughout the trailer we are also introduced "Toad's Rec Room", within this game mode players will have the option of combining two Nintendo Switch screens to enjoy some cross system mayhem.

While using a non-primary console, downloadable content can only be started by the user that purchased the content.

A family membership is also available for $34.99 for one year, allowing up to 8 consoles to use the service at one time.

But the real draw might be the downloadable NES bundle, which now includes Balloon Fight, Baseball, Donkey Kong, Double Dragon, Dr. Mario, Excitebike, Ghosts 'N Goblins, Gradius, Ice Climber, Ice Hockey, The Legend of Zelda, Mario Bros., Pro Wrestling, River City Ransom, Soccer, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo Switch Online is available now for $3.99 for one month, $7.99 for three months, or $19.99 for one full year. There are some games which do not require the service, such as Fortnite since it's free-to-play, but most other definitely do. Free trials can be accessed via the Nintendo eShop. October will bring Solomon's Key, NES Open and Super Dodge Ball. These games can be played locally or online with friends.

Nintendo will add additional classic NES games at no extra charge.

Nintendo Switch gamers have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the service due to the availability of classic games like Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda.

Nintendo's Online service has launched, finally bringing with it numerous oft-requested features - like cloud save backups.

This suggests that users will have to connect their Nintendo Switch consoles to the internet at least once a week in order to maintain access to their NES collection. But while Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus offer up a ton of free games each month, Nintendo is sticking to their guns with retro offerings, a strategy met with a polarizing response after its announcement.
