Nintendo narrows down Switch Online launch to the 'second half of September'

20 online-play enabled Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) titles that will let you share your screen, use voice chat to talk to friends, and use the multiplayer functionality over the internet.

How do you guys feel about Nintendo starting to charge for online play when it comes to the Switch?

While both Microsoft and Sony have shown the value proposition of their services over the years, Nintendo's experience in the online space has lagged.

Nintendo's Switch online service was first scheduled for a release past year, but was later delayed to Fall 2018. We're getting closer and closer to the launch of Nintendo's paid online service. Balloon FightIce Climber Dr. Mario The Legend of Zelda Super Mario Bros.

Save your game data online for easy access. The Online Nintendo membership will include; Mario Tennis™ Aces, Splatoon™ 2, Mario Kart™ 8 Deluxe, ARMS™, and much more. The plans start at $4 United States dollars a month and users can also purchase a three month subscription for $8, or the most discounted rate of $20 for a full year. Consumers can choose from either the individual or family plan, ranging from one to 12 months.

Not forcing your console customers pay for the privilege of playing their own video games online is leaving money on the table in 2018. Given that the Switch is also highly portable, it seems like Online play would be a wise investment for hardcore players. Expect to hear more about Nintendo Switch Online soon in the coming weeks, probably first at Gamescom which is 15 days away.
