  3. Lastly, head over to the Nintendo eShop on your Nintendo Switch system and select the “Enter Code” option to input the download code you received in the last step. 

The collection of classic NES and SNES games is included with the Nintendo Online trial, much like online multiplayer gameplay, cloud save data features, and more. Here are a few things to keep in mind from Nintendo regarding the free trial:

The Free trial cannot be used with Nintendo Accounts that already have an active Individual Membership or Family Membership.

The Nintendo Switch Online free trial will automatically convert into a monthly membership, so be sure to manually cancel if you don’t want to start paying:

Your free trial will automatically convert into a monthly membership at the end of the trial period, unless you turn off automatic renewal before the end of the trial. Upon conversion of your free trial to a full membership, and on an ongoing basis thereafter, we will charge you the membership amount unless and until you turn off automatic renewal.
