Nintendo Switch Online service launches September 18

Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week Nintendo Direct Rescheduled, Switch Online Launches September 18

Nintendo announced new wireless NES controllers today as an exclusive for subscribers of the Switch's online service. We might hear about more games during the Nintendo Direct on Thursday. In addition to this, Nintendo is offering players a little nostalgic boost by creating a joy-con controller set shaped after the original NES controller.

On a related note, Nintendo has rolled out an update for the official smartphone app available on Android and iOS.

The controllers work specifically with the NES games offered through the Online service, so don't expect to use them with, say, the Hamster Vs.

That's still more than the iPhone SE, however, which sold for $399, making it the cheapest iPhone the firm had sold. While iPhone sales have slowed, Apple profits have risen along with the average purchase price of its handsets.

Finally, there's the very inconvenient voice chat process for online games. Individual membership is separated into three tiers: $3.99 for one month; $7.99 for three months and $19.99 for 12 months. As you can see from the image, the bundle will include two NES Controllers that will be rechargeable, similar to the standard Switch controllers.

In terms of perks, you don't get current gen games for free like you do on PSN.

The whole service is ready for launch, and goes up next week on September 18th. DOOM, Skyrim, Enter the Gungeon, the Binding of Isaac, and more have been ported to the Switch, and Nintendo is now adding Civilization VI, City Skylines, Warframe, Diablo 3, and a handful of indie titles.
