Switch online is much maligned, but playing NES games can still be a pretty good time. The initial roster of twenty games is set to grow next week on 10th October, with three additions. These include NES Open Tournament Golf – fun fact, this is Mario’s first appearance in a golf game – Solomon’s Key and Super Dodge Ball.
The #NES fun doesn’t have to stop! More NES games are coming to #NintendoSwitch. NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon’s Key, and Super Dodge Ball will be available with a #NintendoSwitchOnline membership. Subscribe now and start playing on 10/10! https://t.co/ZPh215YNeT pic.twitter.com/UdxOf7TGnM

And no, that hasn’t stopped people complaining about the lack of cloud saves for Splatoon 2, the stability of Nintendo’s online servers, or the fact that voice chat is in a mobile app.
Speaking in a Seattle Q&A, NoA president Reggie Fils-Aime said, “Nintendo’s approach is to do things differently. We have a much different suite of experiences than our competitors offer, and we do that in a different way. This creates a sort of yin and yang for our consumers. They’re excited about cloud saves and legacy content but wish we might deliver voice chat a different way, for example.”
I mean… Yeah.
