Nintendo Announces Fortnite Nintendo Switch Console Bundle

This will protect your save files in the event of a console malfunction, or if you need to make room on your Switch but don't want to lose the save file forever.

Nintendo Online comes with an array of subscription tiers, and features individual and family memberships.

Similar to Xbox Live and PlayStation Plus, Nintendo Switch Online is a subscription service that lets you play games online.

Signing up is also the only way to access HD remasters of old classic titles. As a reminder, it does not require a Nintendo Switch Online membership to play online.

In preparation, Nintendo Switch eShop is scheduled for maintenance starting at 5pm PT and will be unavailable for up to 3 hours.
