Nintendo has had a great start to this year; they have been nailing every plan and there seems to be no stopping in them. To keep the momentum going, Nintendo’s long-awaited online services will be going live this September.
Earlier this month a few postings mentioned that there might be a delay and the online servers will go live next year but it has been corrected and confirmed that it is going live this year.
They are offering different subscription packages; we have our annual subscriptions at $19.99 then there is a monthly subscription for $3.99 and a three-month setup for $7.99.
The subscription will include Classic Game Selection that would include games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Flight and Dr.Mario. There may be some adjustments and additions to the details but until now this is what we have.
The Nintendo Switch Online service will enable the players with the ability to use voice chat in lobbies and more. The Nintendo Switch app will also be supporting SplatNet 2 for Splatoon 2 through which the players will be able to view the upcoming states, personal statistics, purchase exclusive gear and will be able to interact with friends.
The company has sold somewhere near 14.86 million Nintendo Switches as of December of last year and its forecasts are suggesting that by March 2018 they will be reaching an estimated 17.74 million Nintendo Switch units.
As soon as Switch’s online services go live, there just might be a lot of new shifts and changes in the gaming industry as well and those changes might be good for the company.
