Nintendo Switch Online's September release window gets narrowed down

From CNET: Nintendo's Switch Online service will arrive in second half of September, the company announced.

We've known that Switch Online will be coming in September for some time, but the company narrowed down the date somewhat in a Thursday tweet.

"#NintendoSwitchOnline will launch in the second half of September," it wrote. "The service provides access to online play & Save Data Cloud backup in compatible games and a growing library of NES titles with added online play."

Nintendo didn't immediately respond to a request for further comment.

It'll cost $20 a year (around £15 or AU$30), with options to pay $3.99 per month, $7.99 for three months or $34.99 for family group -- which allows the account holder to invite up to seven others to join that group.

Online play has been free on the Switch since it launched in March 2017, but it will be part of the paid service once it hits in September. That applies to use of the voice chat-enabling Online app, available on iOS and Android, as well.
