Nintendo Switch Online

Are you subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online? If so, you can now download the free Spirit Board Challenge Pack 1 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It was just released on the Switch eShop for active members.

The pack includes some items that can be used from the Spirit Board mode in Smash Bros. Ultimate. The full contents are as follows:

In addition to the Labo VR update, Nintendo is also doing something else with Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker: Nintendo Switch Online subscribers get access to a time-limited trial version of the game. However, this offer is only available to Japanese accounts. If you fulfill these conditions, you can download the full game and play it between 12 PM on August 5 and 6 PM on August 11 (Japanese time). Once that period has ended, you can no longer access the game.

No word yet on whether or nor this offer will also be available in other regions.

Earlier this year, the Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers program began. Nintendo Switch Online members have been given the opportunity to save some cash on digital games published by the Big N. A pair of vouchers can be purchased for $99.99, and can then be used on the likes of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Mario Maker 2. It’s basically a way of saving up to $20.

Keep in mind that the offer is about to end. Nintendo Switch Online members can purchase vouchers through July 31, and then that’s it. Vouchers must be redeemed within 12 months from purchase date.

Nintendo has announced that a new rewind feature will be implemented for NES – Nintendo Switch Online. By pressing and holding ZL + ZR, players can easily rewind gameplay.

Here’s a video promoting the feature:

All games will include the rewind feature starting July 17.

Nintendo has announced the next wave of games that will be added to NES – Nintendo Switch Online in July 2019. This month, The Wrecking Crew and Donkey Kong 3 will be available.

Here’s an introduction to both games:

Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa commented on the Switch Online service at the company’s 79th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders. An investor asked about how it will be enhanced given how a subscription is “inexpensive”, but “the content of the service still feels rather weak.”

Furukawa highlighted that Nintendo Switch Online has surpassed 10 million accounts, and the number of subscribers “has increased steadily since the service was launched last September”. He would later say that Nintendo understands “that making the Nintendo Switch Online service attractive to users is extremely important, and will continue to make the content of the service even more appealing going forward.”

The NES – Nintendo Switch Online app has received its monthly update. Version 2.6.0 is live, adding in the latest classic titles and another SP version.

This month, Nintendo Switch Online members can get their hands on City Connection, Double Dragon II, and Volleyball. On top of that, TwinBee has been added as a special version.

Not too long ago, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers program. If you’re a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber, you can obtain two vouchers for $99.99 that can be used on select titles. Rather than buying a pair of games digitally for a combined total of $120, you can save $20 if you spend your money right.

Pokemon fans will be happy to hear that the vouchers can now be redeemed for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. Just remember that they can only be purchased through July 31. Vouchers will then need to be redeemed within 12 months from the purchase date.

Nintendo has announced the NES games joining the Nintendo Switch Online service this month. Double Dragon II, Volleyball, and City Connect will all be available on June 12.

Here’s an introduction to each game:

Hello my HMs & TMs! It’s bonus time on NEP- you get a double length episode!

Oni and Galen then go through all the awesome announcements from the Pokemon Press Conference this week, and muse on the potential of Pokemon Home, in particular. By this time, Oni starts to become weak with hunger and all reasoning goes out the window… Check below the break for more details!
