Adjust Comment Print

Nintendo has announced their Switch Online memberships will launch in Canada, the US and beyond on September 18, 2018.

The premium service was originally slated to arrive in late 2017, but was eventually pushed back by nearly a year.

The membership will net users access to online play, classic NES games, save data cloud backup, and use of the Nintendo Switch Online mobile application.

According to Nintendo's site, individual plans will go for about $4 a month, and $20 for a year.

We also no know that the starting library of NES games will also include third-party stuff like Double Dragon, Gradius, and River City Ransom.

The start date for the online service was presumably going to be announced last week during the planned Nintendo Direct, but the presentation was cancelled following a major natural disaster in Japan.

Other perks of signing up for the Switch Online service are special offers, which will be announced as time passes. The aforementioned Splatoon 2 is one such title, unfortunately. Obviously, you'll need to update in order to the Nintendo Switch eShop as well as Nintendo Switch Online.

The delayed Nintendo Direct didn't hold back in showing off the primary features for the Nintendo Switch Online service. Prior to this change, you should verify that your Nintendo Account or your childs Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user profile.
