Nintendo will launch an online service for the Switch console in the fall of 2018.
What is known
The company announced the launch of Switch Online in its microblog on Twitter. Nintendo was laconic and named only the launch date - September 2018. Before that, the company planned to launch the service in March.
Players are already available some of Switch Online's online capabilities, but they work through crutches. Also, before the official launch, the service will be free. To use online privileges in the future, you will have to buy a subscription. For the year, players will be asked to pay $ 20, for three months - $ 8 and $ 4 for the month. For subscription, Nintendo offers access to online, voice chat and special offers in eShop.
