Online gaming with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription
As well as great single-player experiences, the Nintendo Switch has become home to various multiplayer-centric games like Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Arms. Playing these games against others across the world, however, will require what’s known as a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, which unlocks the means for players to challenge opponents in the online space.
A generous back catalogue of SNES and NES games
As well as totally fresh experiences, Nintendo has opened up a generous portion of its retro back catalogue for players to jump into. The only way to access them is via a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, but once you do, you’ll discover some gems as seen in the 8-bit and 16-but era. Games featured include Super Mario World, Ice Climbers, Star Fox and plenty more.
