Nintendo Switch Online service launches September 18

This coincides with the release of Nintendo's paid online service and Switch version 6.0.

Nintendo Direct will kick off tomorrow at 11pm GMT.

Nintendo confirmed that the Nintendo Switch Online service would launch on September 18th in North America, with a United Kingdom launch happening the following day. The Switch eShop will not be available for "up to 3 hours". These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda. I'd also recommend the cloud saves for those of you with massive completionist save files (looking at you, Breath of the Wild), so you don't have to worry about them being lost for some reason.

Nintendo revealed this morning that its next Nintendo Direct presentation has been rescheduled for tomorrow, September 13.

It'll also reach out to your emergency contacts. "We're thrilled Apple Watch has become an essential part of peoples' lives". Cellular models with aluminum cases and a sport band will start at $499 for a 40-mm Watch and $529 for the 44-mm version.

According to Nintendo's site, individual plans will go for about $4 a month, and $20 for a year.

Nintendo had previously revealed that the Nintendo Switch would eventually require an online subscription similar to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live in order to play games online.

If you have multiple Switch users on a single home system, you'll definitely want to check your account settings and make sure all the accounts are in order.
