Nintendo Switch's online service confirmed for late September

Nintendo Switch Online service coming in the second half of September

However, now Nintendo America has announced that it shall launch in the second half of September. Nintendo's NES Classic Mini console managed to take the number one spot for the number of sales in July, surpassing any current-gen console on the market. The smartphone app will also aid with this while also providing a boost to the Nintendo Switch Online features and special discounts on games.

While both Microsoft and Sony have shown the value proposition of their services over the years, Nintendo's experience in the online space has lagged.

There's only a few weeks left until Nintendo Switch Online launches, according to a press release from Nintendo. Also included within the online service is "Save Data Cloud Backup" which will allow for gamers to save their game data to the cloud for ease of access.

Nintendo's Switch online service was first scheduled for a release past year, but was later delayed to Fall 2018. This is great for people who want to retrieve their data if they lose, break or purchase an additional Nintendo Switch system.

These will be releasing in Japan this October, with pre-orders hopefully going up soon on Play-Asia. It runs similarly to that of the Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus programs, even EA's Origins has a similar option for the PC platform. The company has responded to Niche Gamer with a clarification regarding online-supported games, and whether they require a subscription or not. Let us know in the comments.
