Nintendo Says No to Switch Virtual Console, But Outlines Online Service



Virtual Console

Alongside a slew of announcements from Nintendo regarding its online service, the company has confirmed that the virtual console will not be coming to Switch.

The news came after Kotaku sent an e-mail to Nintendo in the wake of the online service’s full reveal. “There are currently no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems,” a Nintendo spokesperson wrote to Kotaku via e-mail.

Of note is the representative’s use of “banner,” as classic games will still be included on the eShop and as part of the online service model.

As for what is planned for launch, the subscription service will cost USD$20 each year, feature a NES catalogue of 20 games, and will allow users to utilize a cloud save function. Family memberships will also be available for $35 per year.

All of the previous content is planned to go live in September, with more updates to features including the NES catalogue coming in the future. This classic catalogue is a strong sign for those who feel as though the loss of the virtual console means all hope is gone, though, when asked again by Kotaku to comment on rumored GameCube titles, Nintendo had “nothing to announce on the topic.”

Near the end, the main character, Takuma, sees a mysterious silhouette of a girl, and the opening finishes with her singing.
