Switch system update version 6.0.0 launches September 18


Nintendo confirmed on Twitter that the service will officially launch next week, on September 18, and that more information will be revealed during Thursday's presentation.

The premium service was originally slated to arrive in late 2017, but was eventually pushed back by nearly a year. Individual membership is separated into three tiers: $3.99 for one month; $7.99 for three months and $19.99 for 12 months. After maintenance, Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions can be purchased.

By the end of the month you'll no longer be able to play Nintendo games online for free, as Nintendo reschedules its cancelled Direct.

At least one ethics expert told the Washington Post that the crowdfunding strategy might violate federal bribery statutes. This month's Supreme Court confirmation hearings have highlighted deeply held fears that abortion rights are in danger.

Nintendo now has a new date for the Direct presentation that was scheduled for September 6. Originally set to launch in 2017, Nintendo ended up having to delay the service multiple times before eventually landing on the second half of September. There's also a family membership option which costs $34.99 per year and allows up to 8 accounts to be connected.

That's literally all there is to know right now, with Nintendo confirming more details will be released tomorrow during the rescheduled Direct event.

Nintendo Switch Online will also give subscribers the ability to back up their save data in the cloud.
