    From Spring 2018 to Fall 2018 - A whole year later than originally planned!

    When big 'N' launched the Switch in March 2017, they said their new paid online service would be launching in Fall of 2017, but soon afterwards they announced it would be delayed into Spring 2018, now the current rumors are claiming a second delay until Fall 2018.
    As noted in the news report above that means VC support could also be delayed, but scene developers recently noticed in the most recent firmware for Switch, the big v4.0 release, there was new process support for stuff which could be used for VC launching apps.

      Considering that online is free until this launches, I think this is one time when constant delays is a good thing.

      Although I find it weird they haven't launched VC and just sold the games, we already know they have an NES emulator.

      Yeah weird, but the FLOG is gone now, wiped from the firmware replaced with signed garbage:

      But this recent tweet, points to possible VC support coming soon: https://twitter.com/qlutoo/status/944735479936831490
      So hopefully we will see soon VC launching, maybe with luck before even the paid service. all tho they really need to improve the network load support for eShop it has been down for most of holidays from xmas presents being unwrapping and going online to grab games, etc.
