Nintendo requires weekly online check-in to play NES games
However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows because in order to guarantee access to the NES library you will be required to connect your Nintendo Switch to the internet every seven days.

Now this isn’t bad if you use your Nintendo Switch a lot as you will most of the time be online, however, if you are one of those people who like to travel a lot or are going on holiday for 2 weeks and can’t take your Switch then your out of luck as you will lose access to the NES library.
I have no idea why Nintendo has chosen to do this as I’m sure it will make a lot of people angry. Especially how Microsoft and Sony don’t require this, as long as the games are downloaded to your home console you can play offline as long as you want. So it makes no sense as to why Nintendo would go down this road.
Not only this But Nintendo has stated that if your online subscription runs out then don’t expect them to keep your cloud save.
Which again makes no sense for Nintendo to do this as PS4 cloud saves are kept for 6 months and Xbox one cloud saves do not require a Gold subscription.
