  • Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

We've seen lots of evidence over the past week that the new date for the Direct will be September 13th, and now we finally have official word from Nintendo on the matter.

Splatoon 2, ARMS, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido are among a few of the games listed as compatible with Nintendo Switch Online.

Nintendo says the Switch Online service brings benefits such as cloud-synced data for user profiles, so you don't need to worry about losing any of your game info, plus NES games will be available for free. Originally set to launch in 2017, Nintendo ended up having to delay the service multiple times before eventually landing on the second half of September.


As previous reports indicated, the Nintendo Direct presentation has been rescheduled for tomorrow.

The days of free online play are ending for Nintendo Switch, as their paid-for service is scheduled to go live on Wednesday, September 19. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda.

There will be three options of purchase, including a 1-month membership that will cost $3.99 USD, a 3-month that will be $7.99 USD, and a 12-month subscription that will be $19.99 USD.
