Why sign up for an online service? After a three hour eShop maintenance period, Nintendo Switch Online will go live. You can also use the app to view in-game battle stats and seek out additional information on selected titles.

Arguably the biggest benefit of all is the ability to enjoy online multiplayer in games like Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. If you're looking to buy a Nintendo Switch regardless, then I would say it's a good deal. So double check that if you aren't sure about it. In fact, it's been previously suggested that many free-to-play games won't require you to pay for the online service in order to continue working as usual. PlayStation will hold onto cloud backup data for six months, while Xbox offers cloud saves to all players at all times.

May also insisted no other plan on the table would ensure "frictionless" trade in Ireland. Speaking about Brexit, the Secretary of State said: "I don't think it's brinkmanship".

There are a few payment packages, starting at $3.99 / £3.49 per month, or $19.99 / £17.99 for the year, which is considerably cheaper than Nintendo's counterparts. Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers can be charged by attaching to the Nintendo Switch system. There is also a family option for US$34.99, which gives yearly access for up to seven family members. Unfortunately, you won't earn points when you purchase a subscription normally.

Having announced a September 18 launch date, it looks like the Nintendo Switch Online service is going live this evening (18th) in the USA, and therefore early tomorrow morning (19th) in most other territories. We expect the Android version to follow suit before the Switch update goes live tonight.
