Although the Nintendo Switch launched with free online multiplayer, it was always going to be for a limited time. Now time is up, and it’s time to pay. Luckily, the subscription service has launched at reasonable price points alongside the availability of ten classic NES titles and a new update to Nintendo‘s smartphone app.

Tiers of the service include one month, three months, and 12 months, as well as a 12-month family membership for up to eight Nintendo Accounts. These prices range from $3.99 USD to $7.99 USD, $19.99 USD, and $34.99 USD, respectively. This is now required to play multiplayer modes on games like Mario Kart 8, unless its titles like Fortnite, which Nintendo will allow to remain fully free-to-play.

20 NES titles will be available at launch, each with newly implemented online functions. Available games include Super Mario Bros. 3, Double Dragon, Yoshi, Balloon Fight and other NES classics. Back up cloud saves will be compatible with most Switch titles for easy access to files on another Switch console, and The Nintendo Switch smartphone app will remain the primary means of online chat with other players.

Find more information in the video below, and look out for the upcoming Fortnite bundle for Nintendo Switch.
