It's A Meme, Mario! At launch, previously announced games Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros. While I'll never sniff at Super Mario Bros 3, the system does seem lacking.

At the moment, the only retro games available through the upcoming Online service are NES games, which is slightly more limited than many fans were expecting. A family membership - allowing up to eight "family accounts" to use the same subscription - will cost £31.49 for a year.

Although Nintendo Switch Online paid service won't launch until September, the website states that online play for compatible games and the app will be free until then.

There's no sign of anything about voice chat, although the existing Nintendo Switch Online, which is now used only for Splatoon 2, is advertised as one of the features.

Nintendo Switch Online App: The Nintendo Switch Online App, which can be downloaded now on iOS and Android devices, allows friends to voice chat with friends. It sounds like they will indeed have a Virtual Console-esque type of thing but it is being called “Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online.” No details yet on whether we will get titles from other Nintendo consoles as well.

Machnouk said "congratulations to all those who won in the elections", adding that the new parliament will convene on May 20. Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar, which is staunchly pro-Hezbollah, described the election as "a slap" for Hariri on its front page.

NES games available as part of Nintendo Switch Online will also be able to take advantage of online or co-op multiplayer. The addition of cloud saves is a very welcome addition, as all Switch save data is tied to the console, prohibiting owners from transferring their data between consoles even in cases where their console breaks. In a way this is similar to what Microsoft offers with its Games with Gold feature, although admittedly Nintendo's offerings are considerably older.

Not only will you be able to play these games, but you'll also be able to play them with a friend - even if they aren't multiplayer.

There will also be discounts and special offers for members so you can chip away at that Switch premium you've been paying for certain titles. Alternatively, if you have multiple people with multiple Nintendo Network accounts living in the same house, there's a Nintendo Network family plan available for $34.99.
