On the Nintendo Switch, you can relive your retro games.

You need a paid Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The subscription is similar to Playstation and Xbox.

The cost of the subscription is available in different tiers 1 month 3.99€ / 3 months 7.99€ / 12 months 19.99€ for this you get access to different games.

Microsoft and Sony relied on new or Triple A games. Access to these games is only possible as long as you pay for your subscription.

Nintendo Switch Online gives you access to various features.

Online game mode

Online mode is necessary for different games if you want to play with your friends or against other players. Excluded from this feature is Fortnite, this can be played online without a subscription.

You can also use the Nintendo Switch online smartphone app for voice chat in online mode.

Storage Data Cloud

With the storage data cloud, you have the ability to store compatible games, such as Animal Crossing: New Horizon, your storage levels and advances online. This has the advantage if you lose your console or switch to another, you can continue where you left off.
