It seems from current updates that we might finally get our hands on some genuine details about Nintendo Switch Online service. The Nintendo Direct presentation for September is going to be held tomorrow, September 6, according to sources. If we leave behind the uncertainty of the event’s happening being truly reported, big reveals about the Nintendo Switch Online service might be in order.
Perhaps, multiple indie games would be announced at the Nintendo Direct event for the Nintendo Switch Online service. The launch for the online service has been scheduled for the month of September already but all hopes now rely on the authenticity of the “close source” of Nintendo Life. The rumored Nintendo Direct could reportedly happen as soon as tomorrow on 6 September at 4:00 pm PDT or 7:00 pm EDT. Which probably means the next day or midnight in the European regions or 1:00 am CEST to be precise.
The main focus of the speculation about tomorrow’s presentation is being predicted for a number of indie games being announced. But then again at this moment all we know about the service is that “Nintendo Switch Online is a paid service that gives members access to online play in compatible games, a selection of NES™ games, extra features for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app, and more” from the official website’s description. It has been said to be the “successor” to virtual console by the CEO of Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aime.
In addition to that, the service is offering a Nintendo Switch Online App to “enhance your online experience for compatible games with this smartphone app.” Moreover, Online Play feature for the service is also being offered by Nintendo where users can battle it out or cooperate with players around the world in compatible games like Splatoon™ 2, ARMS™, Mario Kart™ 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis™ Aces, and Sushi Striker™: The Way of Sushido 20 NES titles were also added in the Nintendo Entertainment System for the first time ever in this regard.
Apart from the expected indie games being revealed in the Nintendo Direct presentation information about the Save Data Cloud Backup could also be in order. The reason behind the announcement of this news arises from Nintendo’s claim to make further available before the September launch of Nintendo Switch Online revealing details about saving your data for online access.
Here’s hoping the upcoming Nintendo Direct announcements are legit and brings some authentic information about the Nintendo Switch Online service.
