Ultimate, with a raft of new updates at its Nintendo Direct announcement on September 13.

Nintendo's coverage of the Switch online service during the latest Direct broadcast briefly summarised what was in store for subscribers. Dedicated portable-only players can look forward to Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS, and a remake of the original GameCube Luigi's Mansion.

One of the biggest complaints about Nintendo Switch through its first year and a half on the market has been the lack of cloud saves.

Not only will Isabelle, the delightful assistant to the Mayor in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, be playable in Super Smash Bros. Now they're a powerhouse of studio with millions of Warframe users, many of which are buying into the game's myriad microtransactions, which the developer touts as cosmetic in nature. DS, Wii and 3DS incarnations followed, alongside a number of spin-offs.

The controller will be available for Switch owners from September 18.

After the hearing reconvened, he reportedly went back in to watch the testimonies. Rubio's closing shot: "You guys can talk to this clown (Jones)".

November 2 is the same day that the special Super Smash Bros.

The Nintendo Switch Online app has been available to download on the App Store and Google Play for quite some time now, but it will become much more relevant once the service launches.

The new version adds gyro controls, HD rumble and single Joy-Con controls for multiplayer battles.

"Save data stored with Save Data Cloud can not be kept outside of the duration of your Nintendo Switch Online membership", reads an FAQ on Nintendo's United Kingdom website. In addition to voice chat support, the app will also offer a second screen experience to view your in-game stats while you're playing. A month will cost $3.99 by itself.

Nintendo is also introducing NES-style controllers that work wirelessly with the Nintendo Switch and are created to work with all the vintage NES games. Retailing at $39.99 (£35) the game features the player as the mayor, focussing on urban planning and city management issues such as transportation and traffic congestion.
