    We know the Nintendo Switch paid online service isn't going to begin until later this year, but president and representative director Tatsumi Kimishima has revealed that the next announcement about the service will be well worth the wait :eek:

    I'm hoping this is true :cool-pika:

    I hope it isn't too much on the pricey side because if it is I'm going to have to wait. I would rather put my money into buying actual games than the online service.

    1 month = $4
    3 months = $8
    1 year = $20

    Doesn't seem bad at all to me :monkey:

    Wow I'm actually surprised. I did some research as well and I didn't realize they were trying to do a Netflix-style subscription along with it for classic games. I am mostly on board with this.

    Oh, was thinking for a second that he was talking about the mobile app. (Got my hopes up that they would finally ditch that stupid 13-year or older age limit so my brother could finally use SplatNet 2 but hey...)

    That said, they'd better announce something worth it. When you consider what Sony has done with PS+ and Microsoft with the box Live (at least, for what I remember of it during the 360 era, when they were handing out games like candy), Nintendo better not disappoint. Especially considering the fact that I'd be salty about paying for nothing (as in, all the "online" Nintendo Switch games I've played were P2P-based, so there's just a matchmaking server, and then, it's a client system that acts as the server. Which is why you can get so many "Connection is unstable" messages in Splatoon 2, shall the game host be annoyed a tiny bit.)

    And also, please, don't be just that weird free NES/SNES game system. I know Nintendo's kinda greedy on that part, and we'll pay less, but... The Switch's VC library won't be big by the time paid NSO rolls out (and I mean, there aren't even news about VC on the Switch!), and I'm pretty sure there are 5 €/$/£ or 500 JPY games on the eShop that could be more exciting for everybody that some flavor of the month NES/SNES game people might even have played during the 3DS/Wii U/Wii era (or on an emulator, since it's so easy to use one nowadays).

    So, as you may expect, I'm emitting some doubts, as always, but it makes getting surprised all the better... if it's for the best.

    It had better actually work. I feel like they're gonna try and do some cool online features, and it'll only work like 15 minutes out of every week or something because of how bad their basic online structure is.

    Well, they definitively know hoy to build up some hype on some of us!! I don´t want to overreact and overthink this situation but could they be possibly thinking about delivering some nintendo gamecube games with this service? Or maybe they set up the virtual console for those users paying the service. I will pay because I love playing online as playing story based games, but there is still that level of uncertainty that runs through my veins and makes me mad at the thought of this service!!

    Also, online is delayed until September 2018.

    Glad to hear this. I never had a huge problem with the deal they previously announced as I never buy VC games so it would be nice to try them out, and I know I will pay because online multiplayer games are most of the time, my favourite time of games.
