The Nintendo Switch Paid Online Services Start The Second Half Of September

Nintendo Switch Online service coming in the second half of September

While we don't have an exact date for the launch, Nintendo has narrowed the window down to the second half of September.

As it so happens, products like Epic Games' Fortnite, Hi-Rez Studios' Paladins, and other free-to-play games that require an Internet connection now lack a warning for customers to tell them that they will lose access when Switch Online launches. Thankfully, that doesn't appear to be the case, as some of the platform's free-to-play titles lack a disclaimer stating that they need to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play. One such detail is Switch Online's release date, as thus far, Nintendo has only said that the service will launch in September. 3 will be joined by Donkey Kong, Ice Climber, The Legend of Zelda, Mario Bros., Soccer, Super Mario Bros. and Tennis. Depending on the game, players can engage in online competitive or co-op multiplayer, or take turns controlling the action.
