Nintendo have always been a bit different when it comes to multiplayer - and for us, at least, that's not always been a bad thing.
Video game stories from other sites on the web. However, Nintendo have revealed that "there are now no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems".
Nintendo is calling it an "adjustable charging stand" and it's created to make charging and playing more convenient. However the dock isn't as useful because what if you wanted to play using the console's screen instead of your TV? Rather than paying $19.99 a year for an individual membership, you can opt to pay $34.99 for the Family membership. No worries, everything can be retrieved if you have the online feature.
Perhaps I allowed myself to be caught up too much in the potential of what might be for Switch's online functionality? Hopefully, this means we'll see games from consoles beyond just the NES. There's no word on a United Kingdom price just yet, but it'll presumably be somewhere between £15-£20. The accessory will launch in two months, on July 13. Anything could happen! There will also be some other invited guests that might be playing Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch.
However, for just a peripheral stand, Nintendo may be charging the Switch owners an unreasonably high price. They've undergone some tweaks to make them online-enabled as well. That's where third-party accessories come in, but not anymore. As if the Switch wasn't cumbersome enough to play already, without adding an extra electronic device to the mix... Nintendo's online service, alluded to at its launch presentation but only vaguely referenced in dribs and drabs ever since, has been puzzlingly absent. This is good but at times pretty bad, but it ultimately makes Nintendo, well, Nintendo.
