When you purchase a membership to the Switch Online services it will give you access to a library of NES titles…stuff we all knew right? Well apparently, once you download these titles to your hardware you will only be able to play them for up to 7 days without an internet connection. This was recently detailed in a Switch Online FAQ found on the official Nintendo website:
Can NES – Nintendo Switch Online games be played offline?
Yes, these games can be played offline for up to 7 days as long as you have an active Nintendo Switch Online membership.
Be sure to check out the FAQ on the site linked above for some other interesting tidbits as well.
Will you guys be right out buying a membership next week or will you be testing the waters with the free 7 day trial? Let us know in the comments below and be sure to stop by our awesome Community!
