No other new features or the remaining NES games have been announced yet, but will update OP if they do!

Questioning why make the tweet if everything they say is just repeating what we already know beside the small second half bit

I was hoping they would share more details on it , i hope this is not all it has to offer
Well, sorry to disappoint but this is probably everything. I mean it'll be launching in a month. My expectations weren't high either but I'm still disappointed.

It's cheap, yes. But I don't pay a subscription on my computer.

I’m going into the Nintendo Switch Online stuff with the mindset of “I am willing to pay $25 Canadian a year to play Super Mario Bros 3 on my Switch” and considering the rest as a fun bonus haha

They should just cancel this...it has been delayed so damn much, people have gotten used to not paying for it. I certainly have.

So dumb. No new features, still touting 20 NES games, and saying cloud saves are for COMPATIBLE games???

Delay the service, Nintendo. I could also go for pulling the plug.

Its been free so far for online play. They’ll probably keep repeating it so not as many people are shocked when its suddenly behind a paywall.

I hope they eventually do SNES games and maybe N64 games.

It took 18 months for NES games, so I'm not holding my breath.

People get all upset but a 25$ a year Netflix style nes library with leaderboards is worth it to me alone.

I hate that they're holding Virtual Console hostage. It's Year 2 and we still can't play Super Mario World. Crazy.

Compatible games? What the fuck? Every game should be able to be backed up to the cloud if that is the main selling point of this service.

Then they would have to raise the price for the service, doncha think? $20 nets you COMPATIBLE games.

Jeez man...

It's extremely likely it is what they are going to offer. So I found it funny that people were waiting to see when they would have another Direct or more announcements coming.

It was already bad enough they're holding save backups behind a paywall. Now this bullshit on top of it.

I’m sensing a backfire here. I don’t think this is going to launch how they expect it to, and they will scramble to make it look worthwhile. $20 is a blip on my radar, but I don’t think the attach rate will make this worth it for them.

Guys, let's wait on the Cloud save thing. Remember they said Gold Points could be used in select digital purchases and it ended up being on every game.
I think they say this just in case some game doesn't allow it

I bet Nintendo's takedown on ROM sites is related to how they will implement these games to online.
I think these takedowns indicate they are going all in with their service.
