You don’t need a Nintendo Switch online subscription to keep playing Fortnite

Nintendo Switch Switch Nintendo Direct NES NES Controller Nintendo Nintendo Switch online Switch online Nintendo store Nintendo estore

Now we're close to the launch of the Switch online subscription service, we know more about how it'll work.

Not many details are known yet, but a short clip with Tom Nook reveals that Animal Crossing for Switch will get a 2019 release. 3 just as it was originally intended. This remake will include HDR and HD graphics, along with all the quirks of the original.

The NES controllers will be available exclusively to Switch Online subscribers. U Deluxe is set for release on January 11, 2019.

When the Switch Online Service finally launches next week, 20 NES games will be available to play via the NES Libary.

But wait, you might be saying to yourself - I have a Switch and have been happily playing online since launch without having to pay a single penny - what gives? It provides access to online play, a library of NES games with added online play and cloud saves.

This is normal practice for someone like Sony who only keeps the save data for PS Plus cloud storage for 6 months after canceling membership, however, Nintendo hasn't specified the time period here so it remains to be seen how long cloud saves will last for a user who has canceled their Nintendo Online subscription.

The Nintendo Direct presentation kicked off with a short clip from the upcoming Luigi Mansion game, which is called, Luigi's Mansion 3.

The first look at Joaquin Phoenix as the joker is pretty unsettling
It was previously rumoured that the Joker will go by Arthur Fleck in the new film, and this new post seems to confirm it. Phoenix, 43, has unkempt, collar-length hair and is wearing a rumpled, button-down shirt and jacket in the picture.


K.K. Slider is a mainstay in the Animal Crossing series, with his songs being featured heavily in the Smash Bros. games (but only on the weekends, of course).

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

For instance, the first game to utilize the app was Splatoon 2. Your job is to drive the monsters out.

A new phone app also lets players voice chat on certain games. These games are very popular on the Nintendo Switch eShop, and they always get to the best selling games of the eShop. Upon its release, it was said that we would be able to access all sorts of exciting functionality for the games which were compatible with the app, although it seems as if it's been used as a social platform.

Yoshi's brand-new platforming adventure is scheduled to arrive on the Switch in Spring 2019. Though for some unknown reason, Final Fantasy VIII has not been included.

Nintendo has announced that Super Smash Bros Ultimate is getting its own Limited Edition Nintendo Switch.

Having introduced the laid-back village community series Animal Crossing to a wider audience through mobile phone holiday home spin-off Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Nintendo has announced a new full franchise entry for the Switch console.
