Nintendo Switch Online Service Launches In September

Given these prices, it is comparably a lot lower than either of the PS4 or Xbox One's online service, fulfilling the Nintendo president's (Tatsumi Kimishima) promise. In a tweet, Nintendo finally revealed that Nintendo Switch Online will launch on September 2018.

The new online service will carry a $20 annual fee with it, which has not gone down well with everyone.

Following reports late past year that Nintendo was pushing the Nintendo Switch Online service to sometime in "fall 2018", the company has now announced just when we'll be able to pay for a better online experience!

While the Switch is successful, Kimishima-san has pledged to continue supporting the 3DS leveraging the portable console's large installed base and rich software lineup. It's no surprise, with games like Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and more helping the system achieve a high level of popularity among gamers. The service will be available at $3.99 a month, $7.99 for three months, or $19.99 for a full year.

In addition to online play, Switch owners will also get access to a library of classic Nintendo games such as "Super Mario Bros".

Snow and then rain in Sunday forecast
Today looks relatively calm as high pressure sets up this morning in NW Ohio, and then moves east through the day. Then snow could change to rain in the afternoon. "Snowfall for the month was 13.7", which is 1.4" above normal.

The Switch outsold the Wii U's 13.5 million lifetime sales in just 9 months.

And the Switch train isn't about to stop anytime soon with Nintendo set to launch the Labo line of cardboard accessories for the Switch. Comment below, let us know.

Nintendo has announced a five-game schedule for the next four months, with one other title dangled over 2018 as a whole.

As reported earlier this week, in nine months the Switch has sold more than the Wii U did in more than four years, which is obviously good news for Nintendo but the question now is what do they do next? Although Nintendo included a touchscreen on their popular new console, ideal for apps, it's just not taken advantage of often enough.
