The smartphone app will also aid with this while also providing a boost to the Nintendo Switch Online features and special discounts on games. Instead, Nintendo has told us that the Nintendo Switch Online service release date is during "the second half of September". It should also be noted, that the NES games up on offer, will for the first time, feature online capabilities, which should help breath in some fresh air to the otherwise standard lineup of classic titles.

Nintendo Switch Online will be arriving later in September. This includes titles like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and ARMS. Moreover, subscribers will have easy access to Save Data Cloud Backup.

We'll update as soon as more details about the service are released. We're getting closer and closer to the launch of Nintendo's paid online service. This is great for people who want to retrieve their data if they lose, break or purchase an additional Nintendo Switch system.

The more intriguing option is what Nintendo calls its Twelve Month Family Membership, which, for $34.99, allows up to eight Nintendo accounts to use the subscription service - even on different consoles. And we still don't know whether it'll be needed to play free-to-play multiplayer games on the system, including the likes of Fortnite.

Nintendo Switch Online is cheaper than PlayStation Plus, and Xbox Live Gold.

The company has also reminded players that they will need to manually buy the online service as they will not be automatically subscribed.
