The Nintendo Switch Online service is expected to arrive on platforms during the second half of September.

When it finally hits next month, Nintendo Switch Online will cost $3.99 for one month, $7.99 for three months, $19.99 for a year and $34.99 for a family membership, which gives up to eight people to ability to use the service.

A move to PSG, however, could still be on the cards for the 29-year-old, who Bayern are willing to sell for around £50m. The 2017-18 German champions are rumored to be demanding a 50 million euro transfer fee.

In the year since its launch, there has been no shortage of unbelievable games coming, from huge first-party games like Mario and Splatoon to indie darlings like Owlboy and Celeste.

Subscribers will also have access to classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) titles like "Donkey Kong", "Balloon Fight", "Dr. Mario,"The Legend of Zelda", and "Super Mario Bros".

Once Nintendo Switch Online releases, you'll need a subscription to play your Switch games online. Nintendo also revealed that the membership will allow players to harness the online power of games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, Arms, and Splatoon 2. When the service launches, online multiplayer in games will be locked behind the subscription.

These will be releasing in Japan this October, with pre-orders hopefully going up soon on Play-Asia.
