Nintendo has now announced that the Nintendo Switch online service will be released sometime in the second half of this September. The Nintendo Switch Online service was originally slated to launch in September, and now, as we're nearing the month in question, Nintendo has slapped down a a more precise release window.

I love all things Nintendo, especially the GameCube era and Animal Crossing!

As you might expect some people are rather annoyed that online play, which is free at present, is going to be locked behind a paywall.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri to send Bakayoko on loan this summer
Either way, Bakayoko has intense competition in Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley, Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and possibly Mateo Kovacic . However, the new boss will have no use for the midfielder after informing the club's chiefs they loan him out for the season.

The Nintendo Switch Online service isn't free.

You will need a subscription to the service if you want to play titles like Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe online. At launch, you'll get access to the NES hits Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros 3, Donkey Kong, Ice Climber, The Legend Of Zelda, Mario Bros, Soccer, Super Mario Bros, and Tennis. Players will also receive "Save Data Cloud" backup option that lets them save their game data online for an easy access in compatible games.

Instead, we get the same rundown of what Nintendo Switch Online will look like and cover, including basic online play for games with online multiplayer modes. A Family Membership costs $54.95 AUD for a year.

Nintendo first announced its online subscription service in January previous year with a launch planned for the summer, but by the time June rolled around the date was pushed back to 2018.

With games like Fortnite and Warframe on the Switch, with the latter coming at a later date, the Online service is something that could be a huge asset for Nintendo Switch players. Subscribers will also get to back up their save data to the cloud, which is seen by many as a necessary feature as there's no easy way to back up save data now.
