As has been previously noted, Switch Online will be required to play most games online.

Nintendo's cloud save page now also has a footnote explaining that not all games support cloud saves at all.

Nintendo ended up going through quite a bit of content during yesterday's Nintendo Direct, from the aforementioned addition of Isabelle to the Super Smash Bros. Also announced and coming in January is a remastered of Deluxe edition of the Wii U's New Super Mario Bros.

One of the biggest news from Nintendo Direct was the reveal that Animal Crossing is coming to Nintendo Switch.

Warframe is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and will launch for the Nintendo Switch on November 20th, 2018.

Between the two games, New Super Mario Bros.

The new version adds gyro controls, HD rumble and single Joy-Con controls for multiplayer battles.

When Nintendo officially unveiled the online service this week, the announcement confirmed that just as expected, fans would need to pay a subscription fee to play games like Mario Kart 8, Splatoon 2, and Smash Bros. A month will cost $3.99 by itself. Retailing at $39.99 (£35) the game features the player as the mayor, focussing on urban planning and city management issues such as transportation and traffic congestion. As of late, that includes the way it shows off the future of its games and consoles.
