Nintendo Switch Online launches in the second half of September

Postado Agosto 11, 2018

Nintendo's Switch online service was first scheduled for a release past year, but was later delayed to Fall 2018.

Nintendo Switch Online is cheaper than PlayStation Plus, and Xbox Live Gold.

With the launch of Nintendo Switch Online in the second half of September, it's a great time for Nintendo Switch fans to plan ahead for the new service. That means it's going be between five and seven weeks before we get to enjoy all the extras that come with the subscription. More details, including the exact launch date, will be announced closer to launch. This includes titles like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and ARMS.

Subscribers will also be able to use Nintendo Switch mobile app features to "enhance their online experience" and receive special offers. There will also be retro love as well for members, including the original NES version of The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo first began discussing the online service back in January 2017 - two months before the console launched.

As it so happens, products like Epic Games' Fortnite, Hi-Rez Studios' Paladins, and other free-to-play games that require an Internet connection now lack a warning for customers to tell them that they will lose access when Switch Online launches. It's £18 for a full 12 month subscription, or alternatively you can pay £4 for a single month and £7 for three months.
