Pretendo Network is now

Nintendo Switch Online
Legacy Pack!

What is Nintendo Switch Online + Legacy Pack?

Nintendo Switch Online + Legacy Pack is the new membership that gives you access to all first-party online servers for Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, with no added costs 2 !

Experience the Nintendo Wii U's infinite 3 library of first party games like never before, with fan-favorite titles such as Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario Maker making a return, and challenge your friends on the go with the Nintendo 3DS's Super Smash Bros. and Miitopia!

Why subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online + Legacy Pack when the online servers are still up and most first-party games have already been ported to the Nintendo Switch?

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh next question.

Is this an April Fools' joke?
