The online service will is practically Nintendo‘s version of PlayStation Network or Xbox Live, offering online multiplayer at a monthly/yearly price, a currently free (for a limited time) feature.

One month will cost $3.99 USD and $19.99 per year with a subscription that will include access to classic Nintendo games with leaderboard scores and updated multiplayer.
