Nintendo Switch Online is a subscription service for the Nintendo Switch that includes online multiplayer, cloud saves, access to the service's mobile app, and access to Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo Entertainment System games, effectively replacing the Virtual Console feature that was used on the Wii, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS. The service launched on September 18, 2018;[1] prior to its launch, online multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch was available for free.

An additional subscription tier known as Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack was released on October 25, 2021. It includes access to Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games, as well as the Happy Home Paradise DLC for Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the Booster Course Pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.[2]

Another update in March 2022 added the ability to create a personalized icon based on various Nintendo characters, frames, and backgrounds. These include Animal Crossing: New Horizons villagers that celebrate their birthday in the current month.

Mobile app[edit]

Main article: NookLink

The Nintendo Switch Online mobile app features services for specific games, including Animal Crossing: New Horizons with NookLink. NookLink allows the player to view certain player and island data, as well as interact with the game.

User profile icons[edit]

An update in March 2022 allows users to purchase game-specific icon elements (divided between characters, frames, and backgrounds) with  Platinum Points from the Nintendo Switch Online system app. An icon cannot be created without adding a character.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has its own special section in the system app, with each villager born in a given month being available as icons during that month. Characters cost  10 Platinum Points, while frames and backgrounds cost  5 Platinum Points.
