Nintendo will charge you to play Mario Kart online from next week

You can pre-order the Switch NES controllers on September 18th, and Nintendo says shipments will start in December.

There are plans to expand their offerings of titles from their NES library, and featured a number of games in the presentation, such as Dr. Mario, NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon's Key, and Metroid. Individual membership is separated into three tiers: $3.99 for one month; $7.99 for three months and $19.99 for 12 months. It's certainly an interesting tactic but one that is not entirely new, since for years now, Nintendo has been rewarding its loyal customers with exclusives through alternate rewards programs. You can make use of a seven-day free trial by signing up on the Nintendo eShop starting September 18.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Take a look at the clip above if you haven't already seen it, and tell us below what you think about the upcoming online service.




Finally, there's the very inconvenient voice chat process for online games.

NES games available on the Nintendo Switch include titles like "The Original Mario Bros: Arcade Classic Series", "Excitebike", "Double Dragon", and more.

The controllers work specifically with the NES games offered through the Online service, so don't expect to use them with, say, the Hamster Vs.
