Wow, Nintendo confirms that the Virtual Console isn't coming to Switch

Nintendo Switch Wow, Nintendo confirms that the Virtual Console isn't coming to Switch

After this announcement came more talk of a potential Virtual Console on the new system, but when Kotaku passed the question over to Nintendo of America, it wasn't the answer people wanted to hear.

The Nintendo Switch Online app is already available for iOS and Android, and offers voice chat and multiplayer hubs for supported games. The other 10 games will be announced closer to launch and more games will be added regularly after September. Three months will run for $7.99, while a single month will go for $3.99. But before that happens, Nintendo is giving Switch owners an idea what they will be signing up for when they pay for a subscription. Family pricing comes in just 12 month package for $34.99, but this will let you share a subscription with up to seven other accounts (both adult and child) that are in a "family group" - you can create these from 15th May. Switch Online will also include a new smartphone app that will add even more features, including voice chat with friends during online play and an "Online Lounge" where you can send and receive messages and friend requests.

Only half of the titles in the initial lineup have revealed thus far, but they consist of some of Nintendo's best-known NES games, including Super Mario Bros.


Nintendo is also offering a Family Membership, which enables up to eight different Nintendo accounts to use the service, which costs £31.49 a year. With the release window set for September 2018, Nintendo has finally revealed all of the details surrounding the system including price, subscription models, online services, and more. For example, online play in games like ARMS and Splatoon 2 are only available via the service. The service will be needed to play multiplayer titles like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the upcoming Super Smash Bros.

The Nintendo Virtual Console was Nintendo's attempt at bringing games from older consoles in a mostly unaltered state for the Nintendo Wii, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS. We'll get more details, like the next ten classic games, closer to the system's September launch.

The recent talks about Nintendo Switch Online have somehow reignited the rumors and the desire of the community for a Virtual console service or platform for the Nintendo Switch console.
