Nintendo Switch Online Service’s Release Dates Announced; More Info Coming Tomorrow

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

For example, we now know that Nintendo Switch Online is coming September 18. Otherwise, the announcement has no other information regarding details for the Nintendo Switch's new paid online gameplay service, particularly availability worldwide. Nintendo announced on Wednesday that Nintendo Switch Online memberships will kick off on September 18th, which is less than a week away. Some of the games that will be available at launch include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

"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. "It will also be possible to play these games offline".

In case you've forgotten, the service will work basically like the Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus: You'll pay to play certain games online, get access to cloud saves, and basically anything else that requires connection.

While UK pricing hasn't yet been confirmed, we know how much it'll cost in the US.

The rumors were true: The postponed Nintendo Direct has been rescheduled for Thursday, 9/13 for 3 p.m. PT, 6 p.m. ET, and it will still be about 35 minutes long.

Nintendo has announced that it will roll out a new Switch update on September 18, created to lock user profiles to their linked Nintendo Accounts.
