    They have more basic info on the "Online Service" out now. From the looks of it, it's modeled after Xbox Gold and PS Plus.
    Subscribing to the service gets you:
    Online gameplay
    Online Lobby & Voice Chat app

    Our new dedicated smart device app will connect to Nintendo Switch and let you invite friends to play online, set play appointments, and chat with friends during online matches in compatible games─all from your smart device. A free, limited version of this app will be available for download in summer 2017.

    Monthly game download - Currently NES and SNES games. Some with online functionality.
    Exclusive deals

    No price yet.
    A free trial of this service will begin in March and lasts until sometime in Fall 2017. The app won't be available until Summer.

    The friend system is the same one that the WiiU currently uses. Which is Nintendo Network ID and not friend codes.

    So, like, can one of these things play 2p games? What happens for 4p? Can you even do 4p?

    They've highlighted a couple multiplayer stuff.

    1 2 Switch - Is a party game that only uses the Joycon. Players face each other and react accordingly to what the game instructs them. main example they showed was a quick draw minigame.

    Ultra Street Fighter 2 - Is 2 player versus and co-op. Includes online versus.

    Mariokart 8 Deluxe - Can have up to 4 splitscreen on one console and can connect up to 8 consoles (1 player per console).

    ARMS - 2 play splitscreen was shown.

    Snipperclips - A nifty co-op puzzle game. Goes up to 4 player same screen if I understood them right.

    So I'm guessing it's just up to the discretion of the developer on what would be appropriate for the game in certain modes. Like 4 player splitscreen when it's undocked is possible but just not gonna work out.

  • Re: Must-Play DS/3DS Games

    There is a slew of great titles on this system series, simply cause it's library has been building for 12 years now.
    Not to mention all the ports of older games.
    There are way more good stuff then I'll list here since I haven't played all there is to offer.
    The Nintendo E-shop is generally pretty good about offering the good games to you on the front pages.

    Based off of what I've played:

    Any recent Pokemon game (X/Y, OmegaRuby/Alpha Sapphire, and Sun/Moon which just released earlier this month.)

    Fire Emblem Awakening or Fates
    If you want a good strategy game. Mechanics are simple. Focuses on battlefield management.

    Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
    Smash Bros.
    Mariokart 7
    cause Nintendo staples.

    Monster Hunter Generations (latest) or 4 Ultimate
    Not for everyone as you'll either find it too grindy, or fun regardless.
    People rarely seem inbetween on this.
    The demos for the series are good for seeing if you are interested or not, and include online play as it is a multiplayer focused game.

    Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Nice and relaxed. Good for relatively short bursts of playtime, around 30 minutes or so once things have settled down. Can get grindy if you play too long in a day.

    Platformers worth a shot:
    Shovel Knight - If you like the classic platformer games from the 8-16bit times then you'll enjoy this one.
