Nintendo Switch online service will arrive this September

Nintendo Switch's Sales to Customers Are Over 13 Million Units; SNES Classic at 4 Million Units

Nintendo did not specify what day the online service will release, just that it is set to launch at some point in September. Although Switch players have had no problem going online and engaging with other players worldwide, the console's online infrastructure is still missing key features, especially its monthly subscription plan thanks to a delay.

The new online service will carry a $20 annual fee with it, which has not gone down well with everyone.

The exceedingly popular Nintendo Switch has far surpassed the company's original forecast, and since March a year ago has reportedly sold 15 million units. The Virtual Console is a digital store on Wii, Wii U, and 3DS that sells classic games from Nintendo's past. The standout among them was "Super Mario Odyssey" with over 9 million copies sold worldwide within a mere 2 months. Once it is activated, subscribers will be able to access online multiplayer modes, the voice chat app and online lobby, free downloads of games each month, and exclusive deals from Nintendo. Despite their differences in success, however, the systems are still fairly similar overall, meaning it shouldn't technically be hard to release old Wii U games for the Nintendo Switch.




So it's entirely possible that while the Switch is technically supported for seven years or more it's superseded by a newer model long before that. The list of games available during the month will only be available for the month itself. "This game helps to maximize the number of people who have access to Nintendo [intellectual properties] by providing a Mario game that a wide variety of users around the world can enjoy", Kimishima said. Some of these games would include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo Labo is a new line of interactive build-and-play experiences that combine DIY creations with the Switch games console.

Nintendo has reported its most profitable quarter in nearly a decade as global sales of its new Switch console soared in the runup to Christmas.
