Nintendo Switch Online's September release window gets narrowed down

Nintendo Switch Online service coming in the second half of September

Nintendo Switch Online service coming in the second half of September

Many Nintendo Switch players have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the online service as a way to expand the playable horizons even more for the hybrid console. When the paid online service launches, free Nintendo Switch online play will end.

While both Microsoft and Sony have shown the value proposition of their services over the years, Nintendo's experience in the online space has lagged.

Fortnite is available now for iOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with an Android launch coming at some point in 2018.

The Nintendo Switch Online service isn't free. In addition, members will have access to a Nintendo Switch Online app and a 'save data cloud backup'. This will make it easier to retrieve game data should you lose your system or start using a new one. Additional details regarding Nintendo Switch Online along the accurate launch date will be declared closer to release date.

Fans can enjoy online play in the compatible games such as ARMS, Splatoon 2, Mario Cart 8 Deluxe, Mario Cart Aces etc. It's unlikely that Nintendo will be able to hold the number 1 position with their classic console as the relaunch was paired with a lot of pre-orders and interest. The Online Nintendo Switch is something new that the company is looking forward to. The service costs $3.99 per month, $7.99 for three months, and $19.99 for a year.
