What Will Happen Once You Cancel Your Online Membership?

If you cancel your Nintendo Online membership, you won’t immediately lose access. You’ll be able to use its benefits until the supposed renewal date. But once it expires, you’ll lose access to its benefits and won’t be able to play your games in the online multiplayer feature. Moreover, you’ll lose all the other benefits that come with the membership, including voice chats with your friends. And if you have a family membership, everyone who has access will also lose access to the membership.

As soon as your subscription expires, Nintendo will no longer provide you with access to your saved cloud storage backup and cannot promise that it will keep these records for long.
