Nintendo‘s Switch Online Program is finally set to debut. The subscription service comes in various tiers (including monthly and yearly), with the option for a free week-long trial run available upon launch. It will be required for Switch owners to utilize features like online multiplayer and cloud saves; plus, it will give users immediate access to 20 different NES games though the lineup has yet to be confirmed.
Although the Online app is already available to download on iOS and Android devices, it will officially roll out on September 18. Nintendo will reveal more information about the service on the rescheduled Direct stream on September 13.
Most recently, the Japanese gaming giant teased new details of the upcoming Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee!.
