    Right here on good ol' planet Earth!
    First off, Nintendo Switch Online should be FREE! Paying to play online is crap; it was always free before! This is Kimishima's fault. While the pricing is relatively cheap, it still shouldn't exist. I propose that Online Play be made free, while the extra perks (Cloud Storage, playing Virtual Console titles, etc.) you have to pay for per month/year. It would be better than the way it is now.

    Secondly, it's about dang time they added Super NES to the line-up. They should have had it already, as well as N64, Wii, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and maybe finally some GameCube titles. I'd also like to see if sometime after they officially cut services for the Wii U and 3DS if games for those platforms will also appear on the Switch.

    If they ever implement these changes, I would be more likely to get a Switch. If they implement a way to support older hardware like Wii Remotes, I'd be even more likely to get one.

    it's already the 5th here and I looked around all over the eShop (and also in the NES app as suggested above), couldn't find traces of the SNES games.
    I assume it'll be available later today?

    lol there's just so much here.

    i think the part that makes me laugh the most is the whole "i'd like to see wii u games on the switch" thing. like man have you even been paying attention, 90% of the Wii U's good games have either had a port or sequel lol.
    i'd say give it 12 hours or so, it's usually around midday things get added normally.

    not sure when they upload new games, 'cause here in the states, final fantasy viii was released at midnight on the day of while grandia collection was released at like noon on the day of. I got both games, and I remember looking for grandia collection multiple times before it appeared.

    I hooe gameboy games happens too sometime with linking but seeing as online is still pretty basic I doubt theyd out in that much work.
    GGPO style would be highly effective much like how retroarch does it in their own way.
    Stunt Race FX is nice to see finally, plus more than two games.
    Curious what games Japan gets but wish they'd make it a tad easier to get the Japan version seeing as it really wrecks the news channel. Or I coukd just stop caring about it.
    I wont hold my breaty but the mouse and suoer scope games would be a nice treat.

    Yeah no 5.0 (Banjo) update for SSBU yet either, but it's usually pretty late in the US when this type of stuff goes live.

    Sorry for being a noob, but I've never tried connecting my switch online (cuz it's on cfw) Is there any way to use this with cfw? or should i just stick with emulators?

    maybe if the nand is clean and you used all hacks on emunand, 'cause if it's like the nes games, the system will phone home weekly.

    Pretty solid lineup just to start with, but it'll never win without that sweet, sweet blast processing B-)

    does anyone know if this will work online, like the NES games where you can play 2-player mode online?
