The company announced today that the Switch will be getting an adjustable charging stand in July that allows you to plug in your system and have it charge while you're playing in tabletop mode. A way that you can save a game that you are playing on the Switch with a cloud save; this should be a dream come true for gamers playing on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo says it will also be offering a family membership, which will allow up to eight accounts on a single membership. Online NES games fall into that category, and while we don't know about the extent to which these games will be changed, it's definitely far more ambitious and innovative than simply putting an emulator on the Switch. Subscribers will have the save data for most of their games stored online, which will be useful in case the Nintendo Switch is lost or broken or if a new Nintendo Switch is used.
However, there's good reason to assume this won't actually be possible.
However, for just a peripheral stand, Nintendo may be charging the Switch owners an unreasonably high price.
I bought my Nintendo Switch in August of previous year.
It comes out on 13 July, in the United States at least, priced at $19.99. Launch titles include all your 30 year old favourites, from the original The Legend of Zelda and Mario Bros. It's a nice little piece of kit, and it should make gaming on the go just that little bit nicer. In the past, we've wondered where the Virtual Console service was and when we'd finally get it, but it looks like the truth is it's never coming.
