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.

"With a Nintendo Switch Online membership, you can play enhanced NES games the way they're meant to be played - using Nintendo Entertainment System-style controllers", the store page reads. One and three month fees are priced in at $3.99 and $7.99, respectively. You can get a glimpse of them in action in the trailer above.

Nintendo Switch Online will also give subscribers the ability to back up their save data in the cloud.

He had his fourth back surgery last April, and at this time a year ago he had just been cleared to chip and putt. Casey cited back pain for pulling out of the FedEx Cup playoff event at Aronimink on Monday morning.

Despite being classic NES games, Nintendo has at least been kind enough to add some modern day functionality to them. Exclusive gear for Splatoon 2 will be given to anyone who purchases a 1yr membership, starting in early October.

UPDATE: Nintendo's online page has confirmed the first 20 games for the NES: Soccer, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Excitebike, Tennis, Balloon Fight, Super Mario Bros. Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus both cost $59.99 for a year-long subscription, while Nintendo Switch Online is available for $19.99 per year for an individual or $34.99 for families.
