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

With the launch of Nintendo Switch Online in the second half of September, it's a great time for Nintendo Switch fans to plan ahead for the new service.

Online play in compatible games, including Splatoon™ 2, ARMS™, Mario Kart™ 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis™ Aces, and more. We knew that the Nintendo Switch Online program would be coming this Summer, but now we have it narrowed down even more for next month. In addition, members will have access to a Nintendo Switch Online app and a 'save data cloud backup'. 3, The Legend of Zelda, Dr. Mario and several others - 20 in total at launch.

Monsanto is found guilty in Roundup trial
Mr Kennedy Jr, the son of the late U.S. senator, said: "I think the verdict is going to trigger a cascade of new cases". Although not involved in the just-concluded trial, the firm represents more than 100 clients now with similar claims.

Nintendo first began discussing the online service back in January 2017 - two months before the console launched.

Taking all of this into consideration, should this be the official route Nintendo is taking, then it would be good news for gamers, as it means that the Big N won't force players to pay an additional fee to get through a paywall barrier between them and their favorite free-to-play titles. For an individual player, this feature will fun about 4 bucks a month, though a three month and twelve month option is also available. One of those perks is access to a collection of classic NES games that have been updated to support online play. Given that the Switch is also highly portable, it seems like Online play would be a wise investment for hardcore players.
