First, Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will be able to purchase the newly revealed NES-style Joy-Con controllers. This announcement made sense because NES games are coming to the Switch as part of Nintendo's online service. So you'll need to keep your Nintendo Switch Online subscription up if you want to keep your saves backed up online otherwise you will lose your cloud saves.

On top of access to online play and a library of classic NES games, one of the perks of subscribing to the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service is "special offers" available exclusively for members.

Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online also uses the Save Data Cloud, so the same applies.
