The full paid service for Nintendo’s online plans was originally meant to launch this fall around the world. However, the page has now been updated to say that the full service will now be launching in 2018. It sounds as though Nintendo weren’t happy with the current plans so hopefully they may have some interesting new features to implement. We shall have to wait and see what the Kyoto-based company has to say about the matter. This means that online play will be free until 2018 which is good news.
