While we knew Nintendo Switch Online was launching in September, we didn’t know exactly when. While we’re still in the dark to a specific release date, Nintendo has at least confirmed that the service is starting in the latter half of the month.


This means you have just over a month to play your online games for free. After that point, you’ll have to pay $3.99 a month, $7.99 for three months, or $19.99 for a full year. The service will also grant you access to online-enabled NES games and cloud-based save data backups.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
