Nintendo Switch Online will also offer the ability to play free NES games with added online abilities, effectively replacing the Virtual Console from the Wii and Wii U era, and new games added every month.

The wait was long for Nintendo Switch Online but its nearly here after numerous delays.

Nintendo Switch owners will not be automatically charged when the service launches in the second half of September.

Nintendo will reveal how to tell if a game requires a Nintendo Switch Online subscription "at a later date".

Nintendo Switch Online will be arriving later in September. One of those perks is access to a collection of classic NES games that have been updated to support online play. This helps in retrieving the game data if somehow the system gets lost or start the game with a new one.

For as close as we are to Nintendo Switch Online's launch, there are still some crucial details that are unknown.

These will be releasing in Japan this October, with pre-orders hopefully going up soon on Play-Asia.

It's been a rather long wait but Nintendo have narrowed down the launch window for Switch's online services. This is significantly much cheaper than the $60 per year that people have to pay for Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus. Let us know in the comments section below! This is the first time that the company has released a paid subscription-based online service but do you think the included features are worth the price?
