Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Prior to this change, you should verify that your Nintendo Account or your childs Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user profile. They will become available for order as a special offer to online service subscribers at an undisclosed date.

The much anticipated online gaming service for the popular Nintendo Switch has a start date: September 18.

Nintendo did provide a glimpse of some of the classics you'll be able to play starting next week, and it appears that some third-party titles will be included in the Nintendo Switch Online lineup.

The Splatoon 2 in-game gear is a free download code for people who purchase a 12-month Nintendo Switch individual or family membership. Ultimate, some more info about that new Yoshi game, and if you're feeling really lucky, an Animal Crossing Switch announcement.

Nintendo Switch owners will not be automatically charged when the service launches in the second half of September, the company confirmed last month. Not all games will support this feature, but it's a relief to see Nintendo add a feature that should have been ready at launch. Other games will have the standard-fare multiplayer enhanced for online multiplayer.

Nintendo plans to give more details about Nintendo Switch Online at an event tomorrow.

The service also unlocks access to a library of NES games, including Super Mario Bros.
