Nintendo Switch Online lands today, complete with unusual cloud saves

Article intro image

Nintendo have just announced the Double Helix Nintendo Switch bundle for Fortnite Battle Royale.

Please note: Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers can only be used while detached from the Nintendo Switch system, and only to play NES - Nintendo Switch Online games [emphasis added].

These will be followed by three additional titles each month with upgraded graphics and some limited online and two-player functionality.

Minister: 20,336 murders recorded in South Africa from 2017 to 2018
Efforts and creative interventions must be intensified and consolidated to escalate our battle against crime", Mthembu said. I think our emphasis should be on what is to be done rather than the crime stats, which don't (sic) give any joy.

There are a few payment packages, starting at $3.99 / £3.49 per month, or $19.99 / £17.99 for the year, which is considerably cheaper than Nintendo's counterparts.

Fortnite is also a free-to-play title on the console, alongside other games like Paladins and Pokemon Quest. Nintendo Switch users will be blessed with the "Double Helix" skin for their bundle, but is it worth your purchase? At the moment, we only know that Splatoon 2 will have a dedicated subsection, the already available Splatnet 2, but if you want to communicate natively via the Switch this is what you need.

If you're connected to the internet, your save data will be backed up automatically, even when your Nintendo Switch is in sleep mode. There is also a family option for US$34.99, which gives yearly access for up to seven family members. The Switch Online service comes with some other benefits to reel people in, although there are some unfortunate setbacks too. We expect the Android version to follow suit before the Switch update goes live tonight.
