It's a fantastic bit of kit straight out the box, but casual users - or those not consistently plugged-in to all things Nintendo - might not be aware of some of the extra stuff their Switches are capable of, from beefing up system security to making games load much faster.

One feature of Nintendo Switch Online (or, more specifically, firmware update 6.0.0) that wasn't heavily advertised, however, is the ability to play games across multiple consoles.

Nintendo Switch Online can be purchased in three ways - by a one-month subscription for $3.99 United States dollars, a three-month subscription for $7.99, and a 12-month subscription for $19.99 USD. You can even share games with a friend if they give you permission and aren't playing the game at the same time.

A family membership is also available for $34.99 Dollars that allows up to eight Nintendo Account holders to access Nintendo's new service.

Moon was given a standing ovation by tens of thousands of North Koreans at the stadium, which holds 150,000 people. Mr Moon has stated that visiting Mount Paektu was a "long unfulfilled dream".

A year of Nintendo Switch Online is $19.99, three months is $7.99, and one month is $3.99.

To use voice chat, you'll need to open the Switch Online app on your iOS device, fire up a compatible title on your Switch, then open the voice chat mode. Online play and cloud save backups are also a must-have.

If Nintendo spots any fishy business, odds are, they'll take action and you won't like the results. In addition to facilitating online play and offering up cloud saves, the service affords access to a curated selection of classic games.
