Well, soon ninjas will also be free to play wherever they want as the sci-fi looter shooter is set to debut on Nintendo's Switch as well after spending it's life thus far on just PC, PS4, and Xbox One (where its done damn well as it's now the fourth-largest game on Steam and boasts a player base across platforms of over 38 million people). The lack of a true virtual console, with a list of revolving NES games is interesting, but not exactly ground breaking with the PS Plus/Xbox Gold offerings from the competition.

The only major negative that seems to be related to the cloud saves is that Nintendo doesn' t guarantee what will happen to them once the membership ends.

Honestly, the retro games were probably the least interesting part for me when I first read about the Switch subscription. Yoshi's Crafted WorldThat Yoshi game Nintendo announced some time ago finally has a name and a release window. Through the app, users were able to access Splatnet.

Another problem which arises is that you can no longer save your data automatically for a long term. Cloud saves are available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 already and have been a much-requested feature for Switch.
