The Nintendo Switch Online subscription offers many advantages. You can play online and use cloud saves. Nintendo also offers free retro games with membership. Among these are NES and SNES console games – classic Donkey Kong, Super Mario and Legend of Zelda, to name a few.

There are some great games available with this offer. Animal Crossing: New Horizons, a user-friendly crafting and social simulation game, is also included in the bundle. Its relaxing music, beautiful landscapes and quirky characters will have you playing for hours. If you want to play with the whole family, Mario Party Superstars is an excellent choice. It’s a fun and fast-paced digital board game, with wild mini-games and the Mario Brothers team. You’ll be sure to get lots of laughs with this one.
