Nintendo Switch Online launch date confirmed

Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

So far, the only games that will have online access revoked for non-Switch Online subscribers include: Splatoon 2, ARMS, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido. Nintendo Switch owners won't automatically become members when the service starts, so they will need to purchase an Individual or Family Membership in order to avoid disruption of their online play in compatible games.

Nintendo has announced new timing details for its next Nintendo Direct broadcast. Well, preparations have to be made, and Nintendo has just confirmed that the Nintendo Switch eShop will be undergoing maintenance on September 18th at 5pm Pacific Time, or 8pm Eastern.

You'll be able to play Super Mario Bros. We've seen lots of evidence over the past week that the new date for the Direct will be September 13th, and now we finally have official word from Nintendo on the matter. Every classic NES game will support voice chat via the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.

The service will cost $3.99/€3.99 for one month, $7.99/€7.99 for three months, and $19.99/€19.99 for a full year.

Among the topics we know Nintendo will discuss during tomorrow's Direct is the upcoming paid Nintendo Switch Online service.
