    "Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will have ongoing access to a library of classic games with added online play," a Nintendo representative told Kotaku. "Users can play as many of the games as they want, as often as they like, as long as they have an active subscription.

    "Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will be able to play a wide variety of classic games, including Super Mario Bros. 3Balloon Fight and Dr. Mario. More games will be announced at a later date. At launch the classic game library will include NES games. Super NES games continue to be under consideration, but we have nothing further to announce at this time."
