Nintendo’s long-awaited online service finally has a launch date. The Japanese gaming giant confirmed on Wednesday that Nintendo Switch Online will go live on September 18 at which time you’ll be able to sign up for a free seven-day trial membership.
Nintendo’s answer to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live will cost $3.99 per month after the free trial. You can save a few bucks by opting for a three-month membership for $7.99 or a 12-month subscription for $19.99. Additionally, a 12-month family plan will be available for $34.99 which lets a Nintendo account holder invite up to seven others to join their group and all will have access to Nintendo Switch Online.
