With next week’s launch getting ever closer, Nintendo has given some more details on what the online shop for the Switch.

The virtual console will not be available on launch for the Switch. We heard rumours that the Switch would eventually feature Game Cube titles in the virtual console, but we’ve heard nothing concrete on that matter.

The eShop will feature a handful of titles on the Switch’s launch next week, and Nintendo claims the eShop will house more than 60 indie games by the end of the year.

Nintendo also went on to say that the eShop would only be accessible after a day one system update.
