Nintendo has been drip-feeding details about the service for months, starting with confirmation that subscribers will have access to classic NES games with additional modern features such as online play and voice chat. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda.

The service will cost $3.99 for one month, $7.99 for three, or $19.99 for 12. A family plan serving up to eight Nintendo accounts will be priced at $34.99/€34.99 for twelve months.

As an important aside, Nintendo Accounts will be permanently linked to Nintendo Switch user accounts after the Nintendo Switch firmware update. But we do know that the service will enable online play, cloud game saving and more.
