Alongside the launch of Nintendo Switch Online on Tuesday, software update v6.0.0 for the Switch has introduced the option to play digitally-purchased games across consoles, for those who own more than one Switch.

Switch players have been enjoying online play since the console made its debut, but the experience has been pretty basic.

Tonight's eShop maintenance is officially over, and Nintendo Switch Online is officially live.

There are certain limitations for Nintendo Switch Online at the moment, including cloud saves being deleted if there is a lapse in the subscription and that multiple Nintendo Accounts on the same console will need a family membership.

NES Online is now available as a free download in the eShop, with online play supported.

So, you have a bit of flexibility when playing your games on other consoles, so long as your Nintendo Account isn't being actively used on another Switch and you maintain a persistent connection to the internet. Until today, Splatoon 2 was the only title on the list.

As a reminder, you can see what all of the hubbub is about for seven days, which grants you access to the NES suite - a single download app that hosts all 20 launch titles. Well now we can all judge for ourselves as Switch online is a go this week. There's a 7-day free trial to enjoy, and the NES games alone make it well worth the money.
