What Are The Benefits To Using Nintendo Online?

As you have no doubt seen in previous posts, it does not seem like there are too many, short of playing NES-era games. (Source)

Play NES games anytime, anywhere, with a growing selection of classic games—with newly added online play—available exclusively for members. Get 20 games at launch, with new games added regularly.

Anytime is a bit of a stretch. Unfortunately without an active Internet connection (7-days), you lose access to the NES games.

Here are the launch titles:



Donkey Kong™

Mario Bros.™

Super Mario Bros.™

Balloon Fight™

Ice Climber™

Dr. Mario™

The Legend of Zelda™

Super Mario Bros.™ 3

Double Dragon

River City Ransom

Ghosts’n Goblins™

Tecmo Bowl


Pro Wrestling



Ice Hockey


Here’s a proposal:

  1. Have the entire back catalog of Nintendo-owned games available from the beginning and worry about licensees later. These games cannot take up too much storage.
  2. Add the licensees as soon as possible.
  3. Configure the Internet-based license check for a month instead of a week.
