  • Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

The online service has been confirmed for a September 18 launch date. Notice how the words "Nintendo Switch Online" are nowhere to be found.

Nintendo has been drip-feeding details about the service for months, starting with confirmation that subscribers will have access to classic NES games with additional modern features such as online play and voice chat.

Nintendo has announced that the Switch's online service will launch in the United States on September 18 and in the UK on September 19. There will also be cloud-based saves. Some of the games that will be available at launch include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros. Previously, playing online was free, but once Switch Online debuts, everyone will need to pay to play online. 3, Donkey Kong, Ice Climber, and The Legend of Zelda.

The reason, Paul Pogba says, was to not distract from the France team. "I would like to coach and if they called me I would go". United, who are six points off the top three, visit unbeaten Watford when the domestic season resumes next weekend.

According to Nintendo's site, individual plans will go for about $4 a month, and $20 for a year. 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.

Nintendo has just announced via social media that the Direct will indeed air tomorrow, September 13th.
