Later this month Nintendo will finally launch their paid online service, Nintendo Switch Online. In addition to getting access to online play (which will no longer be free once the service launches), Nintendo Switch Online gives members access to a digital library of classic games with 20 NES titles available at launch. Nintendo previously indicated that some of these classic titles will have new online features, and today we got a little more info in this regard.
Mario Bros. is one of the 20 games players will soon have access to, and Nintendo has just confirmed that the latest release of the classic 1983 arcade game will include online co-op. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to team up with a friend anywhere in the world to bash baddies in the sewers. There’s still no exact release date for the service and its games, but you can expect it to launch sometime in the next few weeks.
