Rather than focus on E3 in June, Nintendo holds its own event, Nintendo Direct, in September.

After a someone vague outlining of the Nintendo Switch Online service in last night's Direct, Nintendo updated an online FAQ page for the service to make some clarifications.

These cool retro controllers for the Switch console look a lot like the originals.

After my Nintendo Switch Online membership expires, will my online save data and my Nintendo Entertainment System™ - Nintendo Switch Online data be erased? However they won't be available to everyone and they won't work in all games.

Classic games in the NES - Nintendo Switch Online collection and the save data for those games will not be removed unless the user chooses to do so manually. Nintendo's online service, opening from 19 Sept, will cost £3.49 / $3.99 for one month or £17.99 / $19.99 for 12 months.

The NES controllers cost $60 for two and will begin shipping in December, and will be available to pre-purchase starting on September 18.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting new Super Smash Bros. These include a cute customised console with a Poke Ball Plus and the Let's Go Pikachu game. Around two weeks ago, at the end of August, Switch hackers managed to datamine Switch Firmware 6.0 a few weeks ahead of its release. Annoyingly, very little that we didn't already know was shared, but an FAQ section on the official Nintendo website gives us a little bit more information.
