During the latest Direct presentation, Nintendo showed an overview trailer for the Switch Online service launching later this month.

The video briefly covered five features including online play, a catalog of NES games, cloud backup for save data, additional online features available through the official smartphone app and the chance to receive special offers if you have a membership.

On a related note, Nintendo has rolled out an update for the official smartphone app available on Android and iOS. It adds support for more software and enhances the overall performance and usability.
