Nintendo Switch's online service is set to launch soon, but before it does, two new facets of the service have surfaced, and it's more inauspicious news for Nintendo fans. The new wireless NES controller for Switch looks exactly like the original NES controller.

Offsetting some of this good news about Nintendo's fast-approaching online service, it was recently revealed that in order to play the included NES games offline, players will need to sign in to the online service once a week and check in. Nintendo's online service, opening from 19 Sept, will cost £3.49 / $3.99 for one month or £17.99 / $19.99 for 12 months.

Nintendo will be launching its online gaming service, Nintendo Switch Online on September 18. We don't know which games will be excluded yet, but Splatoon 2 and Dark Souls: Remastered were mentioned earlier this week when the company told Kotaku that it fears cloud saves could be used to cheat in certain circumstances. These include a cute customised console with a Poke Ball Plus and the Let's Go Pikachu game.

[Nintendo Entertainment System games] also use the Save Data Cloud, so the same applies. No word yet on whether or not you can buy a single controller individually.

Nintendo didn't provide any other details, outside of the working title and the 2019 release.

"However, if you keep the Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online save data saved locally on your Nintendo Switch console, then you can use it again if you purchase another membership".
