Original: Nintendo Switch Online will finally launch in September, Nintendo has announced. President Tatsumi Kimishima just announced the news during the company’s latest financial results briefing.
Unfortunately, Kimishima did not go into specifics. More information will be shared later in the year, he said.
Nintendo Switch Online is the paid service for the Big N’s new console. By paying a certain fee each month, players can access Switch’s online features. Subscribers will also be able to download a compilation of classic titles with added online play, along with exclusive discounts.
