What is Nintendo Switch Online and what is it for?

In this article, I'll tell you everything you need to know about Nintendo Switch Online, Nintendo's paid online service. From playing games online to saving your game data in the cloud.

Online multiplayer

The most important feature of Nintendo Switch Online is the ability to play with multiple players online. With games like Mario Kart, Super Smash and Splatoon 2, not only do you compete with your friends, but you can test your skills against players from all over the world. Or with your friends when they're not next to you.

Registration in the Cloud

No matter how carefully you handle your switch, something can go wrong. Fortunately, you save your online backups in the Cloud so you can access them anytime, anywhere, even if your Switch console is lost, stolen or broken. You can read about how to fix this in our article "How do I save my Nintendo Switch game saves in the cloud".

NES Emulator

You play the NES classics of the past via the Nintendo Switch Online NES Emulator. This way, you can get back to the old Metroid games and play games you've never had the chance to play before. What's more, with NES games offering multiplayer capabilities, you'll be playing online with players from all over the world.

Online Chat

The online multiplayer gaming experience naturally also includes a form of voice chat. Nintendo Switch Online solves this problem with the Nintendo Smart Phone application. With the application on your phone's voice chat, you follow your friends, whether they're playing with you or as a spectator. You'll also find a mountain of additional information about the game you're playing, such as the score, accuracy and progress of your game.
