Nintendo Switch's Online Service Will Finally Let You Back Up Your Saves

Share

Earlier in the day, Nintendo officially revealed its Nintendo Switch Online paid service for the hybrid console. Also, we will finally be getting cloud saves, which is a pretty big deal if you play games like the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and you were anxious about losing your save. With this membership option, up to eight Nintendo Account holders can access and use the Nintendo Switch Online service across different consoles.

Visit the Nintendo website for more information about the Nintendo Switch Online service. For now, it has been confirmed to offer classic games from the NES library, with 30 games to be offered at launch and more to be added in the future.

One of the big question marks regarding the Nintendo Switch past year was how Nintendo would incorporate its subscription-based online service. Cloud save files are standard across the video game industry on the Xbox One's Xbox Live, the PlayStation 4's PlayStation Plus and Steam on PC. Every classic NES game will support voice chat via the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app. You will still be able to play those games, such as Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, in single-player or local multiplayer but you won't be able to compete against your friends over the internet if you don't have an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

On top that, the other benefit to the service will be the ability to upload save data backups to the cloud, meaning you'll still be able to retrieve your progress if your Switch breaks. There are also other pricing plans available to lower the cost slightly.

While Nintendo has confirmed that Switch Online won't be getting a Virtual Console specifically, there will be a selection of 20 games at launch - with more said to be added regularly - that subscribers can play in order to scratch that retro gaming itch they might have. A month's subscription for Nintendo Switch Online will cost US$3.99 (about Rs. 250), three months for $7.99 (about Rs. 500), and a full year for $19.99 (about Rs. 1,280). At launch, previously announced games "Balloon Fight", "Dr. Mario" and "Super Mario Bros".

There's even a 12 month family membership available for £31.49. The app allows users to voice chat with friends during online matches, set appointments, and invite friends.
