Switch multiplayer games are up to 70% off right now

If you're looking to play online multiplayer, rather than local, you'll need a paid Nintendo Switch Online subscription to connect to other players, but there are a number of titles still flawless for couch co-op too.

Nintendo has yet to have a traditional Direct in 2019, disappointing some after announcing an indie-focused presentation last month which revealed SteamWorld Quest. Given the 3DS' past success that statement made sense, but with recent sharp drops in hardware sales and the Switch/mobile eclipsing much of that market, Nintendo's tune has changed over time.

Nintendo Switch Online was put in place late past year, a service which is now required to play most online-capable games on the Switch.

According to a new rumour, Nintendo's first major Direct of the year will arrive on Wednesday, 13 February - which will "probably" feature Metroid Prime Trilogy.

"Going forward, we aim to generate such demand among consumers as they feel like "I want to have my own Nintendo Switch console" through measures such as software offerings".

We are not disclosing details by each membership plan but among consumers who have purchased memberships, however, a growing percentage is now opting for shorter plans like the one-month membership.

"And from the viewpoint of our full-year unit sales forecast for this fiscal year, while we expected that releasing titles during the holiday season would help to increase sales, the year-on-year sales increase during the first half of the fiscal year turned out not big enough, which also affected the revision of the unit forecast as we looked back now".

"While the 3DS market has contracted faster than we anticipated, now many of consumers who newly purchase Nintendo 3DS are consumers purchasing Nintendo 3DS as their first game system".
