This is a list of all classic games available for the Nintendo Switch Online service. Nintendo Switch Online launched properly on September 19, 2018, and currently supports two (four with a premium subscription) systems. The service began with NES games at launch, then expanded into SNES games on September 6, 2019. From October 2021, users will be able to purchase a premium subscription that will allow them to access Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis titles. These games can also be accessed offline, but require a weekly online contact to keep accessing them offline.

While playing, players can access a suspend menu by pressing specified buttons. In this menu, players can create up to four restore points, a feature carried over from the Classic Edition systems.
