Nintendo Switch Online Revealed!


Expectations in-line with their online service


Nintendo has officially given us the first few details around their online subscription service, now releasing in 2018.

You’ll be able to play compatible co-op and competitive games online by signing in with your Nintendo Account. Online play will be free for Nintendo Account holders until our paid online service launches in 2018.

Subscribers will get to download a compilation of classic titles with added online play, such as Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Fight and Dr. Mario.


The paid service lets you take your gaming up a notch with online multiplayer and exclusive benefits. Standard online features such as system and game updates will be free for all Nintendo Switch users. Prices for the service are available below.


The service will be free from now until 2018, which is an upgrade from the previous launch of Fall 2017. I believe it is a fantastic price for the service & I cannot wait to hear more about it. For more information, visit the Nintendo Switch Online website.

  1. Wait, but will games that are fairly online-dependant like Splatoon 2 have free online? I know that the online subscription is super cheap but I’d still like to know, since paying to play online with a game that’s oriented towards online play would be strange.

    1. Well yes, that is normally how the online services for consoles works. Splatoon 2 will have free online, but that is only till the online service launches in 2018. Once the service launches, you’ll have to pay to play Splatoon 2 multiplayer.
