Nintendo Switch Online Service Launches September 18th Alongside 6.0.0 System Update

"Due to the powerful natural disaster in Hokkaido, Japan, we have chose to delay this week's planned Nintendo Direct", Nintendo said in a statement.

Last week, Nintendo was poised to premiere a new Direct broadcast centered around the Switch and 3DS when a significant magnitude 6.7 natural disaster hit Hokkaido, Japan.

Nintendo has confirmed that the service will go live starting September 18th, this coming Tuesday. This library is set to expand over the length of the service, and for such a reason Nintendo announced wireless NES controllers to be used for these games!

"Tune in at 23:00 (UK time) on 13/09 for info about upcoming #NintendoSwitch and #3DS titles!" Eastern, 3:00 p.m. Pacific. A subscription to Switch Online costs $20 a year for individual users, so that's really not bad at all.

The Nintendo Switch Online Service was originally set to launch last year during the first year of the console but was delayed until next week. The Nintendo Switch Online EU release date is coming to consoles in the region on September 19, a whole 24 hours later than their United States cousins.

Why Paul Manafort’s Plea Deal is Horrible News for President Trump
Any deal would not be final until Manafort admits guilt before the judge, who would need to approve the plea. He led the campaign when Trump was selected as the Republican presidential nominee at the party convention.

According to the information disclosed by the company, the Nintendo Switch Online would come out with a free trial period of seven days, after which it will be necessary to pay for a subscription plan to keep on using the service. Once Switch Online is launched you will need an active subscription to play games online.

Softness Liker said: 'Gamers: "The Wii U should have a paid online service, these servers are bad!" Whether it's the placeholder UI indicating ghost health points, the off-kilter visuals or a lack of polish, it looks a lot rougher than previous demo videos for Nintendo Switch games.

Though it previously seemed like Luigi games were best left either on the Nintendo 3DS or dearly departed after the titular character was straight-up murdered in the latest Super Smash Bros. Mario, Luigi and Toad return as playable characters, and are joined by Nabbit and Toadette, who can also turn into Peachette by getting a Super Crown, offering new ways for beginners to play together with friends and family.

One of the new titles, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, sold 1.4 million units between May and June.

Announced via Twitter, Nintendo's upcoming 35-minute Direct was delayed from its original September 6 date due to an quake that struck Hokkaido, Japan.
