During the Nintendo Direct that aired overnight, Nintendo released a bevy of announcements for first and third-party game.

However, it's worth remembering that Nintendo Switch Online is much cheaper than the competition, coming in only at $20, meaning it being lighter and less appealing in certain ways is inevitable. Not much has been revealed about the game other than it will be released in 2019.

The game involves players inhabiting a village with anthropomorphic animals, performing a range of tasks and activities including collecting things, socializing and spending in-game currency.

Nintendo didn't forget about 3DS. But I guess playing as Isabelle in Super Smash Bros. Microsoft offers free cloud saves without an Xbox Live subscription.

The remaster of the original PS2 game Katamari Damacy is coming to Switch as Katamari Damacy Reroll this winter. To get access to this online library you must pay to subscribe to the Nintendo Switch Online service which allows access to old NES games as a perk. "Nintendo Switch Online also uses the Save Data Cloud, so the same applies", reads the FAQ.

There are a variety of payment schemes for Nintendo Switch Online: $3.99 for one month, $7.99 for three months, or $19.99 for a year.

Those after a truly authentic retro feel will nearly certainly want to pick up Nintendo's latest accessory - wireless NES controllers.

The Nintendo Switch Online app has been available to download on the App Store and Google Play for quite some time now, but it will become much more relevant once the service launches.
