During the Nintendo Direct that aired overnight, Nintendo released a bevy of announcements for first and third-party game.

Thankfully, we can have our cake and eat it too.

One of the biggest news from Nintendo Direct was the reveal that Animal Crossing is coming to Nintendo Switch.

It's no secret by now that Nintendo Switch Online will add a feature that's sorely lacking from the console's basic options with next week's launch. Ports of Wii U games were among them, as expected.

Isabelle from Animal Crossing will be playable in Super Smash Bros.

The long-expected Deluxe treatment is finally coming to New Super Mario Bros. No word yet on whether or not you can buy a single controller individually.

It's also been revealed that if your subscription lapses any cloud saves you have will be deleted instantly.

One small section of this FAQ talks about those precious cloud save files, specifically explaining what happens to them when your Nintendo Switch Online subscription expires. In terms of pricing, a 1-month membership costs £3.49 ($3.99); 3-months cost £6.99 ($7.99); and a 12-month membership costs £17.99 ($19.99).

Last night, Nintendo announced that it would be selling NES and Famicom controllers for the Switch, which explains why those controller icons were included in the firmware. That doesn't appear to be the case with the Switch unless Nintendo clarifies further in the future. These include a cute customised console with a Poke Ball Plus and the Let's Go Pikachu game.
