We’re finally getting Cloud saves with Nintendo Switch’s Online service, but you’ve got to pay for it

We're finally getting Cloud saves with Nintendo Switch's Online service, but you've got to pay for it Oh joyous day, we’ve gotten a real look at what to expect with Nintendo Switch’s Online service AND finally had news on the long-awaited Cloud saves too. Sure, it all comes bundled in with Ninty’s packages, but I’m not really surprised. 

Earlier today, Nintendo revealed a full list of details regarding the Online service and here’s what it’ll cost you:

  • 1 Month – £3.49/€3.99/$3.99
  • 3 Months – £6.99/€7.99/$7.99
  • 12 Months – £17.99/€19.99/$19.99
  • 12 Months (Family membership) – £31.49/€34.99/$34.99

We’ve had inklings, but not been totally sure what the Online service will bring. We knew that we’d get access to online play, the Switch Online smartphone app, and exclusive members-only offers. However, aside from Cloud saves, there’ll also be 20 NES games on launch – these include titles like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, and more.
