Nintendo unveils $60 wireless NES controllers for the Switch

Starting 18 September, Nintendo Switch users will be getting an online service comparable to PSN and Xbox Live.

The premium service was originally slated to arrive in late 2017, but was eventually pushed back by nearly a year. But we do know that the service will enable online play, cloud game saving and more. The full scope of memberships will be available on the Nintendo website and the eShop, with the 3-month and 12-month options also available at Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop.

By the end of the month you'll no longer be able to play Nintendo games online for free, as Nintendo reschedules its cancelled Direct.

IPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression
As for the iPhone11,6 identifier, this appears to be the iPhone Xs thanks to the 4GB of RAM detailed in the specifications list. It also features IP68 certification which makes it water-resistant - beer and tea as well - in 2m depth for up to 30 minutes.

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.

Before you start paying, Nintendo is offering a week free for you to see if it's something you really want to pay for. "It will also be possible to play these games offline". You can get a glimpse of them in action in the trailer above.

There are two pricing plans: individual and family memberships. Originally set to launch in 2017, Nintendo ended up having to delay the service multiple times before eventually landing on the second half of September.
