Nintendo Switch’s Online Service Will Begin In September

Nintendo Switch Online has been in the works for some time, and after some lengthy delays, the premium service from Nintendo is set to go live this coming September, the company revealed today.

Competitors Microsoft and Sony have been providing a premium service for years now, with Nintendo finally jumping aboard at roughly $20 USD a year. This remarkably much lower than both Xbox Live and PlayStation Plus, but as of now, we aren’t sure how much you’ll be getting for your money.

We know that Nintendo Switch Online will offer various classic titles each month, with Super Mario Bros. 3, and Dr. Mario given as examples, what differentiates the service from Xbox Live and PlayStation Plus is that when the month is over, you don’t keep those games, whereas, with Microsoft and Sony, you keep the free game as long as you’re a paid member of the service.
