More information on all of this will be revealed tomorrow during the Nintendo Direct. Today, Nintendo detailed the firmware update that's coming along with the Switch Online launch, and it's making some changes that Switch owners should definitely know about. Exclusive gear for Splatoon 2 will be given to anyone who purchases a 1yr membership, starting in early October.

We still aren't going to be getting a Virtual Console, though the company will be adding 20 NES games to the console, along with the option to play them in co-op.

Michel Vorm will deputise for captain Lloris, who this week pleaded guilty to drink-driving in London and was fined £50,000. All the women, men, people can make a mistake. "That is a massive lesson for everyone".

Nintendo Switch Online will also give subscribers the ability to back up their save data in the cloud. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda. Previously, playing online was free, but once Switch Online debuts, everyone will need to pay to play online. Notice how the words "Nintendo Switch Online" are nowhere to be found. You will only be able to unlink a user account from a Nintendo Account until 8 p.m. ET on Sep.

Nintendo just kicked off another Nintendo Direct presentation, and it opened with something fans have been dreaming of for a long time.
