Nintendo Restricts New Switch NES Controllers Behind Online Subscription

Warframe Releases For Nintendo Switch On November 20

Here is all you need to know about the announcements made at the September 13 Nintendo Direct update. It will launch alongside the game on December 7. New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe is a re-release of the Wii U game, including the Luigi DLC.

For instance, Tencent confirmed to Variety that its multiplayer battle title, Arena of Valor, falls under the no-subscription umbrella as well. Whether that exception holds true for all free-to-play titles is yet to be seen.

Pokemon fans might be more interested in the Pikachu and Eevee themed Nintendo Switch consoles. The new wireless NES controller for Switch looks exactly like the original NES controller. The library will continue to grow, although Nintendo has not detailed how it will or how frequently.

What NES games are included?

If the latest forecast holds, Florence will strike farther north on the East Coast than any other Category 4 hurricane in history. Hurricane Florence will approach the coast of North Carolina and SC on Thursday or Friday.

Another annoyance will likely come from the fact that Nintendo won't hold onto your cloud saves if your subscription isn't active. Those cloud saves, however, will be lost if a customer allows their subscription to lapse.

The controller will be available for Switch owners from September 18. However they won't be available to everyone and they won't work in all games. The smartphone app also has connectivity features for certain games, such as Splatoon 2, where game information can be beamed to your device for viewing.

Why you need to connect to the Internet every week if you're subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online isn't clear and Nintendo, at the moment, hasn't provided an explanation for the odd restriction.
