Online Nintendo Switch Debuts in September’s Second Half

Credit Wikipedia  Bandai

In a press statement sent to Nintendo World Report among other outlets earlier tonight, the service was revealed to be launching in the second half of September (16th - 30th). But, Nintendo was the one to lack this service.

20 online-play enabled Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) titles that will let you share your screen, use voice chat to talk to friends, and use the multiplayer functionality over the internet. Anyways, now fans can enjoy the online gaming service at their best.

Access to the Nintendo Switch smartphone app.




Of course, there's always a chance that Nintendo goes on to add the Switch Online disclaimer before the service goes live, but that possibility seems relatively low at this point. Also included within the online service is "Save Data Cloud Backup" which will allow for gamers to save their game data to the cloud for ease of access.

For as close as we are to Nintendo Switch Online's launch, there are still some crucial details that are unknown. Additionally, special family membership will also be available for $44.99, giving access to the full suite of online features for up to 8 accounts. And we still don't know whether it'll be needed to play free-to-play multiplayer games on the system, including the likes of Fortnite.

The company has also reminded players that they will need to manually buy the online service as they will not be automatically subscribed.
