When the Switch was first revealed, Nintendo also announced that the online service would be a paid offering that would allow users to play "compatible co-op and competitive games online". Online multiplayer will remain free for Switch owners until Nintendo Switch Online launches.
The service will cost $29.95 a year. One month and three month subscriptions are also available for $5.95 and $11.95 respectively.
Nintendo last year also revealed that the service would have "ongoing access to a library of classic games you can take anywhere". Initially, the service would have a rotating library of classic Nintendo games, but the company confirmed to Kotaku that "users can play as many of the games as they want, as often as they like, as long as they have an active subscription".
