Nintendo has announced that the online service for the Switch, originally due last year, will now launch in September.
Similar to PSN and Xbox Live, Switch online will offer online gaming for a fee. Currently $3.99 per month or $19.99 per year. At the moment Switch owners are able to play online for free, but that will be stopped when the new on,one service launches.
Instead of offering a selection of free games every month. The new online service will offer a retro title from Nintendo’s back catalogue, each game will be upgraded with online features such as leaderboards and online play.
There is still no word on when, or if Nintendo will add Virtual Console to the Switch, By far the most requested feature.
