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.
