Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Nintendo fans were brimming with anticipation in the lead-up to Nintendo Direct on September 6, where the company was expected to reveal new games and info about its Switch and 3DS platforms. Since there will be some games that won't be able to make use of cloud saves, for whatever reason. Level up with a Nintendo Switch Online membership! Ultimate, some more info about that new Yoshi game, and if you're feeling really lucky, an Animal Crossing Switch announcement. As you can see from the image, the bundle will include two NES Controllers that will be rechargeable, similar to the standard Switch controllers. If you decide that it is, then it's US$3.99 (~RM16.52) a month, US$7.99 (~RM33.09) for three months, and US$19.99 (~RM82.79) for a year. "It will also be possible to play these games offline". Additionally, Nintendo also gave updates on other first and third party titles coming to the Switch in the future, and also announced a plethora of ports coming to the hybrid console, such as City Skylines, Civilization VI, and Diablo 3.

While UK pricing hasn't yet been confirmed, we know how much it'll cost in the US.

Will you be signing up for Switch Online once it debuts on September 18th?

That said, it's not all rosy: One of the biggest disappointments about the proposed online play of the Switch was that the only way to get voice chat going was apparently via the dubious Switch Online app.
