Nintendo Switch Online Launch Date Revealed

Originally set to launch in 2017, Nintendo ended up having to delay the service multiple times before eventually landing on the second half of September. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda. Not a bad price, considering PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold both cost about $60 a year, though by all accounts you won't get as much with a Switch Online subscription. Apparently, these controllers will only be available to paying customers of Nintendo's online service. Perhaps most immediately useful at launch, though, is its promise of allowing cloud saves for any games players have in progress.

This is the LAST news any fan of the Green Bay Packers - or of lovely , fantastic football - would ever want to hear. The Bears got one last chance to come back and score, with Mitch Trubisky leading a charge downfield.

In addition to this, they've also confirmed that system software 6.0.0 will release alongside Nintendo Online. "It will also be possible to play these games offline". Individual membership is separated into three tiers: $3.99 for one month; $7.99 for three months and $19.99 for 12 months. Level up with a Nintendo Switch Online membership!

What else might be planned for the Direct is unclear, as at the moment the only thing we know is that it'll last roughly 35 minutes and start at 11pm on Thursday, September 13.
