Watch The Nintendo Switch Online Direct Here

  • Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Notice how the words "Nintendo Switch Online" are nowhere to be found.

Nintendo has announced their Switch Online memberships will launch in Canada, the United States of America and beyond on September 18, 2018. Alongside the launch, those interested will be able to get a seven-day free trial to evaluate the quality of the service.

The long-awaited start of the online service for Nintendo's hybrid console is set in stone.

The service also unlocks access to a library of NES games, including Super Mario Bros.


If you have multiple Switch users on a single home system, you'll definitely want to check your account settings and make sure all the accounts are in order. For individual memberships, one, three and 12-month subscriptions will cost $3.99, $7.99 and $19.99, respectively.

The Nintendo Direct that was postponed last week will instead take place tomorrow, September 13, at 11pm BST, Nintendo said this morning.

Nintendo Switch Online will also give subscribers the ability to back up their save data in the cloud.

The news came as part of a simple update straight from Nintendo, tucked within the announcement of the new date and time for the next Nintendo Direct video release on YouTube.
