The long-awaited start of the online service for Nintendo's hybrid console is set in stone. Not the most shocking of reveals, mind you, but good stuff all around. Level up with a Nintendo Switch Online membership!

What was the standout moment for you?

UPDATE: Nintendo's online page has confirmed the first 20 games for the NES: Soccer, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Excitebike, Tennis, Balloon Fight, Super Mario Bros. Another is a download code for Splatoon 2 in-game gear.

Nintendo Switch Online will also give subscribers the ability to back up their save data in the cloud. We might hear about more games during the Nintendo Direct on Thursday. Previously, playing online was free, but once Switch Online debuts, everyone will need to pay to play online. The information on Switch Online, however, still refers to voice chat only in reference to the app, meaning Nintendo might stick with this asinine idea in spite of the better options. There are options for both individual and family memberships (up to 8 users).

Due to an unfortunate and devastating natural disaster in Japan this past week, Nintendo chose to reschedule its Nintendo Direct presentation which was planned to stream on Sep 6.
