Nintendo today announced some new details about the Online Service for the Nintendo Switch. The company first planned to start it in 2017 but it looks like it will be available only from 2018.

Until that you can enjoy everything for free with your Switch playing online and more. When the service starts you can choose from 3 different plans:

  • 30 days – 300 yen
  • 90 days – 800 Yen
  • 365 days – 2400 Yen

This service will be similar like for the Xbox One. You will need it to play online, using special services, applications like Online Lobby & Voice Chat (which will be available on smartphone too). Until more information, please stay tuned.
