Latest Nintendo Direct reveals a plethora of games coming to the Switch

Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Why it matters: Nintendo is late to the online party and while it might not be as feature-packed as the competition, at least that is reflected in its price point.

As part of the Nintendo Switch online service players will have many NES games available to play, and what better way to play them than with a classic Nintendo Entertainment System controller.

Nintendo has revealed new games and a new control method for the NES games on Nintendo Switch Online.

Nintendo's answer to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live will cost $3.99 per month after the free trial.

Tottenham suffer Alli’s blow for visit of Liverpool
Previously at Stoke City, Liverpool triggered Shaqiri's £13million release clause this summer. Liverpool's League Cup triumph in 2012 remains their most recent trophy of any kind.

The Splatoon 2 in-game gear is a free download code for people who purchase a 12-month Nintendo Switch individual or family membership. I'd also recommend the cloud saves for those of you with massive completionist save files (looking at you, Breath of the Wild), so you don't have to worry about them being lost for some reason.

A week later and Nintendo is ready again to host its Nintendo Direct event, now on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 3 p.m. PT, 6 p.m. ET.

The news came as part of a simple update straight from Nintendo, tucked within the announcement of the new date and time for the next Nintendo Direct video release on YouTube.
