Nintendo Switch Online

Fans of Nintendo Switch Online have a reason to be excited. The gaming giant has just added four new titles to the online service—one for NES, one for SNES, and two for Game Boy. Without a doubt, Nintendo Switch is the company’s most successful console to date.

Two features of the Nintendo Switch that have endeared it to gamers are the fact that it can be hooked to the television for a bigger display and players can take it along with them wherever they go. In addition to that, there is a vast library of games for players to choose from.

With its large library that goes back many decades, Nintendo Switch also makes it possible for gamers that want to relive their childhood games to go back in time. Most consoles quickly move on from older titles but Nintendo is putting in work to preserve the memories from its previous consoles—and that is commendable.
