Nintendo Switch Online Service Coming In September

Nintendo has announced that its much awaited fee-based online service for Switch is coming in September.

The Switch launched last March, but at the time the platform's online service was undefined. Currently online play is free for Nintendo account holders as a trial until September, and the service will cost $3.99 a month or $19.99 a year. It includes free game downloads (for the month only), online play, and more.

At the end of last year, Nintendo's Italian website seemed to indicate that the service would be delayed until the fall of 2018.

Our Take 
It'll be interesting to see what first- and/or third-party titles Nintendo uses to highlight the service when it launches. Maybe this will be a new title or extra content for a title currently out.
