Nintendo Switch Online Service Will Launch in Second Half of September 2018

Nintendo has announced a firmer release window for their premium Nintendo Switch online service.

While previously we knew it was coming sometime this September, they’ve now set it for sometime in the second half of September.

In related news, Nintendo confirmed to Niche Gamer that not all games will require a paid Nintendo Switch Online subscription to access online play.

In case you missed it, the company shared a few more details for the service back in May of this year – you can read more about that here.
