New Super Mario Bros U To Get Deluxe Switch Version - News

First of all they are only compatible with Nintendo Switch Online's NES games.

Given the library of NES games along with these new controllers, the Nintendo Switch looks like it's on its way to making the NES Classic console obsolete.

Yesterday Nintendo fully unveiled their Nintendo Online Service, which launches next week.

Q. After my Nintendo Switch Online subscription expires, will my Save Data Cloud files and Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online save data be erased?

However, the announcement of these controllers also seems to confirm that SNES games and controllers are coming to the system down the line. Annoyingly, very little that we didn't already know was shared, but an FAQ section on the official Nintendo website gives us a little bit more information. Sony locks its cloud saves behind the PS+ membership but they are kept for around 6 months or so.

When asked for comment by Kotaku UK, Nintendo replied: "Nintendo does not comment on rumour and speculation", but, even in the absence of official word, it seems pretty obvious that the company has prepared to eventually release SNES controllers for Switch (which also means SNES games). Subscriptions can be purchased in one-month (US $4 / £3.49 / AU $6), three-month (US $8 / £7 / AU $12), and 12-month (US $20 / £18 / AU $30) increments, while a 12-month family plan costs United States $35 / £31.49 / AU $55.

Nintendo Switch Online will set you back $4 a month, and a mere $20 for a full year. Have these newly-revealed restrictions changed your mind?
