Starting tomorrow, September 19 2018, Nintendo’s Online Service will be live. Joining Cloud Saves, Online Play and Special Offers will be twenty classic NES titles.

Not only will we be getting access to these archive titles but many will have synchronous online gameplay. Count me in for some online Ice Hockey! Another interesting addition is that if you’re playing online, you can display a hand-shaped cursor on your friend’s screen. This can show them where to go and even be used to clap and congratulate your teammate! I have a feeling this will get used for ironic slow claps with whoever is unlucky enough to challenge me at Dr. Mario.
