    After many delays, and months of unconfirmed rumors, the Nintendo Switch Online service is finally coming to their hybrid consoles on September 2018, that is as long as they don't delay it yet again before we reach September, like they have done already twice before!
    So what do you think, will you finally be happy coming Fall 2018 to be paying monthly to get online with your Nintendo Switch?

      again see how nintendo are always behind.

      as for pricing i guess its features are going to be limited in comparison, prob 4-8 players at one time.

      or knowing nintendo they probably passing this expense onto the devs, theyll allow a basic connection feature but the dev will have to host its games on its own servers, which theyll probably charge a season pass or something.

      Or they'll rely on some P2P based system, either way some half-a***ed approach.

      Given what they've done with chat I would be surprised if they've done it 'properly'.

      @tech3475 - Sadly their online launch will not be much better, as you can see from the above news posts, its just an expanded mobile app that is currently used for voice chat for Splatoon 2..

      All this online stuff is coming to Switch in form of expanded mobile app, at best all you will have on Switch is the rotating monthly sectional of NES Games, which expire and get replaced next month, all the matchmaking and voice chat you will need to keep your mobile phone close by to your Switch, in fact very close as the cables for mic/sound are short! :)

      I had a look around, couldnt find a good enough facepalm image.

      This is even worse than the Wii if the mobile is needed even for matchmaking.
