  • Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

It's certainly an interesting tactic but one that is not entirely new, since for years now, Nintendo has been rewarding its loyal customers with exclusives through alternate rewards programs.

A year and a half after launching, the Nintendo Switch is finally getting an official online service.

Are you excited for Switch Online to hit, or are you just disappointed that you'll have to pay to play online soon?

Nintendo has announced it is developing a third entry in the Luigi's Mansion for Nintendo Switch.

This week's Nintendo Direct will be a 35-minute showcase of upcoming 3DS and Switch games. You will only be able to unlink a user account from a Nintendo Account until 8 p.m. ET on Sep.

In terms of perks, you don't get current gen games for free like you do on PSN. You can make use of a seven-day free trial by signing up on the Nintendo eShop starting September 18.

Despite being classic NES games, Nintendo has at least been kind enough to add some modern day functionality to them. Nintendo also stated that it will update the NES library with more titles in the months ahead, so fingers crossed that we'll see classics like Castlevania and Contra make the rounds, along with a few obscure favorites.

Alongside the release of the online service will come with NES-themed Joy-Cons.
