In before the "it's not free because":

You need NSO
You need a switch
You need electricity to charge the switch
You need to pay for food to give you energy to play the switch...
they should make it free for switch online period

You can always make a japanese account and play it

Heat added 🔥

I already have Mario Tennis Aces but that doesn't make this a bad deal. I haven't played it for a while actually, I might get it out again soon and continue adventure mode.

Hopefully that's the way the service is heading

AND You need to sacrifice your “not so free” time to play because “it’s free”.
Heat added, it adds value to NSO and Xbox are currently doing free play days with gold, although I wish Microsoft would follow Nintendo's suit and give a week's trial.

Admittedly we all want SNES games, I think Nintendo would do well if they released the All Stars pack and Super Mario World for NSO, that is an awesome set of games.

I mean for how cheap Nintendo Switch Online is compared to PS Plus and Xbox Live I don't mind the free game for this short period of time

The idea is obviously for you to try the game and if you like it, you can get a discount if you buy it from the eShop to continue playing after the trial period has ended.

I wouldn't mind a game trial once per month, this is better than NES games anyway

Agreed. Do hope they bring SNES games too though

Nintendo are just trying to give away as little as possible with NSO whilst maintaining the massive subscriber base that almost entirely has paid their £15 because they want to protect their save data or want to have the privilege of playing with their friends via P2P. This is just another crappy "freebie" lie the NES games that most people don't care about. Give us some basic OS features and online functionality that PS4 and MS have had since the PS3/360.

Hopefully at some point. I want GameCube games but I don't see that happening. I play GameCube games on my Wii, anyway
Might actually have someone to play against for a few days
I wish Nintendo gave away free games a month alongside this like Microsoft and Sony do.(NB. Outside NES games)
Edited by: "SpeedyG" 1st Aug
I probably wouldn’t buy this but I’ll happily play it for free for a week. Great deal

They do but so far they are all NES games hopefully they add SNES soon
This any good? Really wanting a game like Wii Sports Tennis for switch.
NSO finally resembling a decent online service. Better late than never.

Not surprising really. Does this have dedicated servers at least? Smash brothers, mario maker 2, are still lag fests for the most part. And Splatoon is still hacked I believe too? So how many people want to pay to rent nes games?
Nintendo need to start investing in dedicated servers. And should have done so first before asking us to pay for a previously free service with no benefits other than nes games.
Cheapest, but least value of the 3 online paywalls.

It's this mentality that lost us the war.

Consider what you're getting for your money. Consider what Xbox and playstation are getting. Then consider weighing up the value of each.
This game is awesome. Super-intense when you get to the higher ranks,

Hmmm that reminds me.. I’ve been stuck on a puzzle level that has some flying furniture blocking a mirror. It’s been a few months now. I think it’s time I consulted google

Yep, me too. Apparently has a motion controlled but but hear its quite limited.

Hopefully Nintendo will release a Wii sports follow up at some point, if not then maybe a third party will put out a motion controlled tennis game.

Nice, I'll probably forget this is free by the 7th though!

It’s a trial - end of, stop being such a drama queen

The game is great I never said there was anything wrong with it I just said that the online community has almost gone used to find a game in seconds now can take 5/10 minutes it’s a shame

That’s fair enough. I didn’t think you were criticising the game btw and I was just saying the online function works well for me.

I see what you mean tho. It does take a few minutes to load up a tournament.
