The Nintendo Switch Online NES games won’t require an internet connection, at least for a few days at a time. Fans eager to get some retro gaming in once the new online service launches tomorrow will be eager to hear they’ll have a bit of say in when and where they can access these classic titles.

Details continue to trickle in about the Switch Online service, which launches tomorrow, September 18. According to a recent FAQ posted by Nintendo, players can access the service’s NES games offline for seven days before they’ll need to find an internet connection.
