When Nintendo first announced the Nintendo Switch, they let it be known that Switch owners would eventually have to pay to use their services. Initially, that was set to begin roughly 6 months after the release of Nintendo's mobile console. Fast-forward to the present and it's been a year and two months since the Nintendo Switch released and gamers have yet to pay for the online system. Never you mind about that, though, because Nintendo Switch Online is still part of Nintendo's plan, it's launching this September, and it's going to have a few things Nintendo fans have been clamoring for.
First, lets recap the price. For years, the online service price point had been set by Microsoft and Sony, charging people $60 for a year subscription for Xbox Live and Playstation Plus.
