Nintendo's premium online service for Switch is slated to begin in September. While Nintendo has said it will reveal further details about the service before launch, those already planning to subscribe now have the opportunity to purchase a membership online.
As pointed out by Wario64 subscriptions for the Nintendo Switch Online service are now available for advance booking from Amazon. The online retailer does not specify the date the service will start, but the memberships are available in two stages – 12 months or three months – and will be delivered via a download code when the service is launched.

In addition to these levels, Nintendo will offer a subscription to the Switch Online service for one month for $ 4, although it is not shown to be available for advance booking yet. Switch owners will also have the opportunity to subscribe to a family plan, which allows up to eight different Nintendo account holders to share the same membership, even across different consoles. The family plan will be available for an annual fee of $ 35.
After the release of the Switch Online service, Switch owners will be required to have a subscription to play most multiplayer games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate online. Additionally, the service will offer subscribers cloud-savers for Switch games, as well as access to a library of classic NES titles with additional online games.
The Nintendo Switch Online service was originally scheduled to begin in late 2017 before it was delayed this year. In addition to Amazon, Switch owners will be able to subscribe directly through Nintendo Eshop or other dealers. The service will also only apply to Switch; online games for 3DS and Wii U titles remain free. You can read more about the service on Nintendo's official website.
