So if you want to play some co-op Splatoon 2 or maybe some ARMS, then you'll need one of these. Notice how the words "Nintendo Switch Online" are nowhere to be found. The Switch's library has quickly become a rival of those of the Xbox One and the PS4, despite being much younger and having been developed by Nintendo, which has historically struggled with third party appeal. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda. You can make use of a seven-day free trial by signing up on the Nintendo eShop starting September 18. There will also be cloud-based saves.

Nintendo Switch Online, as it's called, will be launching on September 18, and beginning on that date, you'll need to pay a subscription fee in order to play games online.
