Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Nintendo Switch Online service goes live next week with a 7-day free trial

Yesterday, Nintendo finally confirmed the launch date for the Switch's paid online service.

The link contains a FAQ page and a full table of the features available to Nintendo Switch online subscribers over those who do not subscribe, which you can see below.

It should be noted that after installing the update, you will no longer be able to unlink your Nintendo Account from your Switch user account.

"Depending on the game, players can engage in online competitive or co-op multiplayer, or take turns controlling the action", Nintendo said earlier this year.




Nintendo fans were brimming with anticipation in the lead-up to Nintendo Direct on September 6, where the company was expected to reveal new games and info about its Switch and 3DS platforms.

The service will cost $3.99 for one month, $7.99 for three, or $19.99 for 12. If you somehow manage to lose your Switch or it gets damaged, you can recover your cloud saves and any purchased digital content without too much hassle, along with your Nintendo Switch Online account.

"Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time". The company is planning on speaking about upcoming Nintendo 3DS and Switch titles, so be prepared for some possible character reveals for Super Smash Bros.
