"Our focus right now is for NES content".
In November, you might recall how Reggie Fils-Aimé said Nintendo Switch Online was going to be the place where users of the service could play all of their classic content. At the time, Reggie the company hadn't even made the full library of NES games available yet.
During a recent chat with Forbes, the President of Nintendo America reiterated how the focus right now was on the NES era:
"In terms of the legacy content, we’ve said that our focus right now is for NES content. And that’s what we’ll continue to push on."

More games will be added in 2019.
By the end of this year, there'll be 29 playable NES games on the Nintendo Switch Online service. Next week, on 12th December, the final three games for 2018 will be added to this digital library. Below is a brief description of each one from the official PR:

  • – After the love of his life, Lala, is kidnapped by the devilish King Egger and taken to his haunted castle, our hero, Lolo, sets out to rescue her. The journey is perilous, as the Great Devil’s fortress is guarded by a massive army. But Lolo has a few tricks up his sleeve. Combining clever environmental puzzles with tricky enemies and an engaging style, Adventures of Lolo is a true classic.
  • – Take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa, a rising ninja in his family’s clan who travels to America to seek vengeance for his father’s death. Fight your way through six challenging side-scrolling chapters/14 stages (not including boss battles) while defeating gangs of street thugs, battling evil ninjas and fighting barbarian bosses by using the deadly Dragon Sword, ninja skills and ninja magic.
  • – Control Toad as he scrambles along the bottom of the screen picking up monsters and bombs and arranging them vertically, horizontally and diagonally to clear the screen of enemies. This game features several modes of play, such as basic, lesson and time race. If you like puzzle games like Dr. Mario, you will definitely love this one!

In addition to this announcement, Nintendo confirmed more games will be added to the NES service next year, starting in January. At this point in time, no information about these upcoming releases has been revealed.

We miss you Club Nintendo.
While the discounts available from the and My Nintendo websites are welcome, many have been left rather disgruntled at the decline of physical goods over the years. At present, those sites only offer discounts on 3DS and Wii U titles, but those old enough to remember the glory days of previous reward system will likely have the odd figurine, poster, or other physical delight sitting around their homes as we speak.
It might not be quite the offering we once had in days gone by, but the Japanese version of the site continues to provide some lovely physical stuff for free (although you do have to pay for delivery). At present, Japanese fans can spend their Platinum Points on festive, 8-bit Mario Pochi bags, a set of B2 posters, some B2 posters, and even a seven day trial of Nintendo Switch Online.

Switch Online Is Going To Be The Place To Play Classic Nintendo Content, According To Reggie

"We haven’t even made the full library of NES games available yet".
Nintendo does not appear to be in any rush to revive its classic games collection on the Switch. In fact, the digital NES library only went live in September and the system is now nearly two years old. It's left fans hungry for more, after previous systems - since the Wii Virtual Console era - have offered access to Nintendo's larger retro library. This includes hits from the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64, along with selections from plenty of other iconic generations.
With all of these old-school gems yet to be released, it has raised concerns about the Japanese company's future plans for classic content. According to Nintendo of America's President Reggie Fils-Aime, however, Nintendo does have grand plans for reviving retro games via the Switch Online subscription service. In a chat with Kotaku, he said it would be "the place" to be for nostalgic experiences:
