A yearly subscription is $19.99 and finally, there will be a "family membership" option, allowing you to pay $34.99 a year and have Switch Online functionality across 8 Nintendo accounts on different consoles.
Nintendo's online system was revealed last night, and it sounds pretty great.
Nintendo's Switch is the most innovative and addicting gaming console to ever be introduced.
Full details of the feature have not yet been revealed, but will mean that your hundreds of hours clocked up on Zelda won't be lost if your Switch goes to Borksville, or gets bricked by a 3rd party accessory. Friends will be able to watch each other play single-player games online and "pass the controller" at any time.
It's now unknown if Nintendo will add other platforms to Nintendo Switch Online's playable library of games, but hopefully they'll have more to say about the service at this year's E3 Expo.
Nintendo has shared more details on the service, which is due to launch in September, including the classic games that will be available on-demand on the service. Although the Nintendo Switch already supports online play for free, that has so far simply been an extensive "grace period" between the launch of the console and the launch of the service.
Additionally, those with a premium Nintendo Network account will gain access to cloud saves for data storage.
More importantly, the Switch Online membership will offer free games on a regular basis.
At the moment, the only retro games available through the upcoming Online service are NES games, which is slightly more limited than many fans were expecting. At the service's launch, 20 games will be made available, including Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros.
The Virtual Console, as we know it, is dead, but that's not to say classic games won't be repackaged and resold to Switch owners in some way.
