The Virtual Console was a great way to introduce new people to classic Nintendo games or replay some of your favourite titles from older consoles. Due to this, Nintendo announced that the online service would be free until they were ready to announce a paid plan. That's all going to happen four months from now when the Nintendo Switch Online service finally opens its doors to more features.

Nintendo has shared more details on the service, which is due to launch in September, including the classic games that will be available on-demand on the service. Some even went to the extent of suggesting that GameCube titles would release on the Nintendo Switch through the Nintendo Virtual Console. Nintendo has confirmed that it will vary with games so not all of them will require an online subscription. There's also a £31.49 yearly family membership that includes access for up to eight Nintendo Accounts. The Nintendo Switch Online app will give you allow you to have voice chat with friends and will also give bonus features to select games such as showing your online stats on Splatoon 2.
