Maybe once this goes live Nintendo will let you convert all your old points. Like if you have 100 points you got from digital purchases, you'll have 500 points after the update.

@Scrummer If that was the case why would Nintendo warn everyone not to register their games before the My Nintendo update?

On another note, next week is very busy on the Nintendo front. Would be the perfect time for a Direct on either the 14th or 15th (there have been Directs on Valentines Day before).

If it is indeed Bandai Namco Singapore that are working on MP4 then that Ridge Racer 8 Switch exclusive listing must be true as well.

@OorWullie You spelled RRIIIDGE RAAACER!!!!!! wrong That would be an awesome E3 reveal though. We need more arcade racers.

People need to stop treating Fe like it's an EA game and therefore a bad thing. It's only published by EA through their Originals label. The game itself is developed by a small indie team whom are also developing Flipping Death for the Switch, so I have total faith in their efforts.

Fe is looking good. Performance-wise, at least. I'll wait for impressions before buying, though, as I'm not much into games that are atmospheric and you just walk around chirping at other creatures. I had my fill of that with the dreadful Journey, thanks.

I read this earlier but wasn't sure whether to post it or not as it doesn't say a whole lot and there's no direct quotes but WCCFTech are a respectable site and I seen another prominent site post it so why not.

Nintendo To Put A Lot Of Resources Into The Nintendo Switch Online Service; Announcement Will Be Worth The Wait

https://wccftech.com/resources-nintendo-switch-online/

Edit: Sorry, there are quotes. Page 2, question 2 below:

https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2018/180209e.pdf

Q2. This is a question about Nintendo Switch Online. The official start of service has been significantly delayed, so has anything changed during this extended development period? Also, how do you plan to popularize the service?

Tatsumi Kimishima (President and Representative Director):

"We view the online service as one component of our efforts to diversify how our games are played and to get people to play more of our games. That is why we want to apply substantial resources to the online service, with the thinking that we will devote our energies to making this a for-pay service.

As for how we plan to popularize the service, it is less about the mechanism and more a question of what kinds of products we can offer, and the spread of the service will depend on whether consumers want what we offer. Please give us a bit more time to announce more details about the service. I think that announcement will convey to you how we plan to popularize the service."

Takahashi:

"We have some ideas about how to make Nintendo Switch Online appealing when it becomes a for-pay service, so I think our next announcement will be worth the wait."

@FragRed I didn't realise that was the developer behind FE. I wasn't a fan of Stick it to the Man but I'm more than willing to give FE a chance.

As for the online subscription I'm not surprised to read that at all. I have said on here numerous times I think there's going to be more to it than we expect. I think it will provide us with the basics we expect but the real draw will be the Classic Game Collection. They won't just be ROM dumps with basic online play added but remastered, possibly with wide-screen and have challenge modes like NES Remix with leaderboards.

I think the main draw of the paid online service will be either the Classic Game Collection or a Smash 4 port releasing the same day.

@Grumblevolcano The main draw of paying for a subpar online service will be games we've all already played?

As if my opinion of this all isn't already so low, that would just be really bad. Surely Nintendo will have something actually new, like Pokemon or Animal Crossing.

It works for Sony.....

@SLIGEACH_EIRE I wish that rumor were true, but random unannounced Tuesday release seems certain to be an error. The puns in the comment threads alone would be so worth it though....

@NEStalgia That was savage but true.

Also include "games no one cares about".

I EXPECT that South Park game as its made in Snowdrop.

If Nintendo are actually serious about the online paid service then they could at least look at the competition and add what they already have. You know, like actual voice chat in and outside of games through the console (it can do it) and also, how about a proper friend system. Basic things like that would make people happy, but this is Nintendo. I expect little.

There is a basic friend system. Via code, Wii U, 3DS and mobile, local.

Thoughif you wanted a truly basic friend system I suppose that would be communication via pidgeon mail.

Yes Sony does do this... but they release current generation games for their systems... I don't want a Nintendo classic... My Subscription for plus is paid for in the first month if you add up the cost of all the games and you own all three systems (PS4,PS3,Vita and VR) With Nintendo charging 20 bucks and giving you a game that costs no more than 5 bucks they are no where near the level of what Sony or Microsoft are offering.

@FragRed The very least they can do is get rid of Friend Codes and make it like the Wii U's Nintendo Network. The very least. I mean the fact that the Switch operates through Friend Codes is already such a huge red flag that I can't take the online seriously at all. Even though the system is less closed than the Wii's, and you can add people from other systems without Friend Codes, the fact that Friend Codes are there at all is just inexcusable for me.

@chucknorris078 Yes, and at least I know with ports on Sony consoles, I know that they will go on sale and eventually be permanently reduced in price. Plus, they're oftentimes bundled. None of this $60 Twilight Princess HD two years after release nonsense that Nintendo pulls.

My logic was pretty much, what are the 2 things Nintendo fans desperately want the most on Switch?

  • Smash
  • VC

I think a Smash 4 port is more likely than Smash 5 and there's 2 ways Nintendo could spin it to get people to pay for the paid online service:
1. Online multiplayer actually works well. Even with the Wii U version, playing online in anything other than 1v1 For Glory had ridiculous lag so if the Switch version worked well online that would be a major draw.
2. Shut down the Wii U online servers by mid/late August 2018. This forces anyone who wants to play Smash online to get the Switch version. In this case, a Super Mario Maker port or sequel would also need to be announced for Switch.

The VC point is just a case of many Nintendo fans would pay for the online service if it was the only way to get specific classic games on Switch.
