Nintendo Switch Online Is Coming In Late September But Nintendo Still Won’t Lock In A Date Shannon Grixti

Expect to hear more about Nintendo Switch Online soon in the coming weeks, probably first at Gamescom which is 15 days away.

Earlier today, Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe both announced that Switch Online will launch in the "second half of September".

We're coming up on a year and a half since the Nintendo Switch first launch, and yet the console still doesn't have a dedicated online service.


In the year since its launch, there has been no shortage of awesome games coming, from huge first-party games like Mario and Splatoon to indie darlings like Owlboy and Celeste. This includes games that have received a score of 8 or higher on GameSpot since the console's release, as well as reviews for new games and updates to reviews of older games that were ported to Switch. There will also be retro love as well for members, including the original NES version of The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros. This makes it easy to retrieve your game data if you lose your system or start using a new one. Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time.

It's worth noting that Nintendo has yet to explicitly declare whether or not free-to-play titles such as Fortnite Battle Royale will need the Switch Online Service in order for players to continue accessing it and playing multiplayer matches.

Nintendo Switch Online App*: The Nintendo Switch Online smartphone application can be used to enhance the online experience for compatible games through voice chat and other features.
