Yesterday, Nintendo Switch Online launched, bringing with it classic NES games and paid online multiplayer.

Nintendo Switch NES Joy-cons have a disappointing fine print

Nintendo giveth and Nintendo taketh away. Or in this case, it just didn’t make things painfully clear before “encouraging” Nintendo fans to put their hard-earned monies into this nod to the past.
