Since Switch launched early in 2017, players have been waiting for how Nintendo's scheduled Switch Online service will play.  Currently, all online games on Switch are free, but Nintendo rolls out its "answer" to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live at the second. We have half of September, giving us a slightly narrower time frame than just September.
The service is confirmed to cost $ 3.99 for a month, $ 7.99 for three months and $ 12.99 for twelve with a family plan for up to eight switches of $ 34.99 for twelve months. What you get is access to online games in multiplayer games like Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. is still a bit cloudy. Fortnite Paladins and Fallout Shelter If you look at eShop though, you will see that games like Mario Tennis Aces say that "Online Features will be free for Nintendo Switch Online Service launches in September 2018 " while games like Fortnite do not indicate that free-to-play titles will remain.
The service also includes cloud storage of data backup, which fans have been legally required for a while and special member discounts. Additionally, you get access to 20+ NES games that have been "enhanced" to include some kind of online component, multiplayer component and voice chat (via smartphone apps.)
The 10 games confirmed so far are:  Balloon Camp
The chat support has been a sore place for players given their clunkiness and not enthusiastic about using it. Interestingly, Epic has skinned the issue of Fortnite by offering native voice chat support using the headphone jack, which we only hope will be standard.
Pricing is competitive given that Playstation Plus and Xbox Live cost a relatively beautiful $ 59.99 for 12 months, but Nintendo is new to online games and their services are not entirely up to Sony and Microsoft's offerings. They do not offer a free selection Change game every month (and the NES games rotate month by month for access), and they do not have party functionality or a performance / trophy system in place. Nintendo has always marched to its own drummer, but it can not work this time, despite the cost difference.
Nintendo killed its virtual console from its former consoles, as well as their MiiVerse: both very cool Nintendo exclusive aspects I could feel the fans enthusiastic about the service, instead of just accepting that we just had to pay.
I still hope they start giving us free Gamecube games on Switch every month. It would sell me on the idea. Nintendo? I know I'm not the only one.
