Nintendo Cloud Save Data Is Deleted if Your Subscription Expires

The new Pokémon Switch bundle box featuring a Switch Online notice on the side

New Super Mario Bros. The NES Classic offers 30 games in one compact throwback console, and if Nintendo adds more classic games to the Nintendo Switch Online service, it may overtake the NES Classic's library.

Nintendo has long done its own thing when it comes to video games.

Plus, if the roster of fighters wasn't already bursting at the seams, Isabelle from Animal Crossing will be entering the fray, bringing the total number of characters up to 74.

But perhaps the most interesting news from Nintendo Direct was that a swath of popular board games is coming to your Switch console. No word yet on whether or not you can buy a single controller individually.

Last night, Nintendo announced that it would be selling NES and Famicom controllers for the Switch, which explains why those controller icons were included in the firmware. A few days ago, the Big N revealed the release date of the service, and it will be released together with the latest system update on September 18, 2018.

Oh, and while on the subject of the Switch Online NES games, Nintendo also revealed these cool retro controllers for playing them. Retailing at $39.99 (£35) the game features the player as the mayor, focussing on urban planning and city management issues such as transportation and traffic congestion.

A host of Final Fantasy games are coming to Switch including Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, XII and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles and Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition.
