Nintendo tweeted this evening that their paid online subscription service Nintendo Switch Online, which has been delayed, will finally launch in September 2018. The service is said to cost $20 per year.
This paid service lets Nintendo Switch owners enjoy online multiplayer gaming as well as a dedicated smartphone app that connects to your Nintendo Switch system and helps you connect with friends for online play sessions in compatible games.
Subscribers will also get to download and play a classic game for free for a month, and will receive discount offers on select digital games.
Please note that online multiplayer gaming will be free until the paid service launches in 2018.
