A family membership is also available for $34.99 for one year, allowing up to 8 consoles to use the service at one time. In addition to facilitating online play and offering up cloud saves, the service affords access to a curated selection of classic games. The same three-month and one-year subscription cards are also available at Best Buy.


It took less than a day, but players have already figured out how to hack the Nintendo Switch Online platform. As long as you maintain your subscription to Nintendo Switch Online, you'll have access to the now available titles, in addition to games Nintendo adds to the library over time.

He was unable to change the box art and had to reuse the art from River City Ransom (an official title), but says that this experiment proves "fully custom games ARE possible". And all Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will be able to pre-order a pair of wireless Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers from Nintendo.com for $59.99.


In this case, all games are saved as.nes files, and a database lists all the games which are authorised to run in plaintext.
