Nintendo Switch

Full Nintendo Switch Online Paid Service Now Says Coming 2018 And More

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.

Online lobby and voice chat

Our new dedicated smart device app will connect to Nintendo Switch and let you invite friends to play online, set play appointments, and chat with friends during online matches in compatible games─all from your smart device.

A free, limited version of this app will be available for download in summer 2017.

Classic Game Selection*

Subscribers will get to download a compilation of classic titles with added online play, such as Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Fight and Dr. Mario.


  • 1 month: $3.99
  • 3 months: $7.99
  • 12 months: $19.99



    1. They better. From the way things are shaping up now, I’d say it wasn’t going to be so great.
      Pricing seems good but Still keeping hopes down on what the service will offer overall.

    2. $20 yearly is a pretty good price honestly. Unless you’re paid pennies. …You’d probably still be able to buy it even if you were paid in pennies.

  1. I don’t know if this delay is good news or bad news.

    On one hand we have it for free for a longer period of time.
    On the other, we’ll be stuck with lackluster support.

  2. They probly saw how crappy it works and need to rework the system. Too bad they didn’t scrap that dumb app concept lol I have not met one person who thinks it’s a good idea. Wt are they thinking honestly lol

  3. $19.99 a year??? That’s the sweet spot right there……the Switch just got even better…..looking forward to it

      1. They’re making it paid online, idiot, to help stabilize online play in case it messes up or something, now take your comment and shove it down your throat!

        1. That’s even more retarded! “Give is more money so you can get basic crap that should’ve been a thing since the Wii U”. Yet judging how much of a failure the Wii U was it’s not a surprise Nintendo has to catch up. You idiots.

      2. ||You bought the PS4 impurity, you have no valid arguments to make Huckleberry Hound…||

              1. ||Master Anubis you disappoint me, the Sonyans hold you in such high esteem, show me you can do better…||

                1. Ohhh Master Anubis, I like the sound of that. Unfortunately, this will have to wait another day, the underworld is summoning me.

    1. Pay $20 extra to talk to people on your phone instead of the gaming device you’re actually using is good? Why not just use Skype, Discord, or some other existing app then?

      Nothing about this service is good and I hope the early adopters bug the hell out of Nintendo to get it right. Everything I have read so far is so counter intuitive and anti consumer. Best thing about it is a low price for something that sounds like it should be free.

      1. $20 yearly is a pretty good price honestly. Unless you’re paid pennies. …You’d probably still be able to buy it even if you were paid in pennies.

        1. $20 is cheap, sure. But would you just pay $20 extra if I made a chat app and said, “here, pay to talk through this. It doesn’t really do anything different from the other chat apps you can download on your phone but what if I scribble the word ‘Nintendo’ on it? Will you buy it now?”

          That’s basically what Nintendo is doing.

          1. Well basically, if I pay extra, that would be 40$. So, Nintendo know what there doing. They are trying to give us some few changes for there online program.

      2. Online play was always meant to be paid and subscribed, it was just that Nintendo didn’t catch up to PS4 and Xbox just to give the Wii U online play a special bonus, you have taken it for granted my friend

        1. I don’t care about paying for online. I do it for PS4 and Xbox. That’s not the problem with Nintendo’s so-called Network and app.

      3. You’re not paying for the app. You’re paying for online play. The app is just one of the features. You can use Skype, Discord, or whatever you want; but you still have to pay $20 to play online.

        1. And use the app as part of that online service. Let’s be real, Nintendo doesn’t really have many games with online play and the ones that are there tend to suffer from connection and stability issues.

          1. I was only saying that the voice chat isn’t really what you’re paying for; like it’s not the main feature of this service. I think more Nintendo games have online functionality than you might realize. To name a few recently: Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Monster Hunter, Xenoblade, Splatoon, Mario Maker, Pokken, multiple past Pokemon games, Kid Icarus, the last two Metroids on DS, Fire Emblem, and maybe Pikmin 3? Don’t remember, but I think there are only a few main Nintendo IPs left that haven’t gotten some kind of online play.

            Also, you mentioned the stability issues with online Nintendo games (which I haven’t personally experienced outside of a couple minor instances), but isn’t that the point of payed online; so that companies can improve their online infrastructure? If Nintendo’s plan is to use the subscription revenue to fix any network problems they have, isn’t it worthwhile?

            1. I was talking about Switch games. There are few out and few announced. Of course there are more Nintendo games with multiplayer over several devices.

              1. In that case we have to wait until the service rolls out in 2018 to see what online games will be there when the service launches. There are only a few now, but we already know that several more are coming later this year and next year; and E3 is just around the corner. There are a few rumored games that should have online multiplayer, if they turn out to be real.

    2. $20 is fine, but I rather pay a bigger premium for more features. This just seems lackluster. I hope they announced more features, or explain these in better detail, because as of right now, im not very interested in it.

  4. $20 a year ain’t bad. i suspect that’s what everyone’s gonna go for cause the other deals suck lmao. besides that i hope the online old games are good and that the phone app doesn’t suck.

    1. What other services ? The “other services” my dear friend offering Great online features while Nintendo telling you go buy a smart phone if you like voice chat. also if you like to play witcher 3..GO BUY ps4 ……

      1. Holy shit it finally happened. The PlayStation itself finally joined this blog site. The weirdest shit happens on this website. I swear to god sickr, your blog site will cause the apocalypse one day, mark my words.

      2. its waste when someone likes you makes legit points but has a name like playstation just so your argument can be thrown out the window

        you dont need to play the console war troll when nintendo is actually making bad decisions

      3. Playstation? Pfffft, more like, Wimpstation! Your precious PS4 is gonna lose! Nintendo is going $20.00 full year of online service! DEAL WITH IT YOU NINTENDO HATING, UGLY, EGG SUCKING FREAK!

      4. A guy called Playstation and tries to talk here is not welcome. You better go to the PissStation Playstation news before I or the commander will destory you :D.

      5. So tell me, precisely what is the bare bones lowest price you can pay on PSN to play games online at all, regardless of other features?

  5. This machine doesn’t even got a natural voice chat…and this shit company will dare to make a Online Paid?
    Well done Shitendo with your new shit device again…

      1. Do we really need to try? It’s too easy at this point and you guys still fall for it hahahahahahaa

      2. They’ve got a point though, making an app to voice chat when it would be easier to use a headset for something like that. Like what the hell?

      3. Who said. Was trolling? Why do I have to pay for an app just to use voice chat?
        That’s dumb. And don’t even try to bring up Playstation because even if you don’t have Playstation Plus, you can still use voice chat, conveniently.

    1. $20 yearly is a pretty good price honestly. Unless you’re paid pennies. …You’d probably still be able to buy it even if you were paid in pennies.

    2. You’re one to talk, foul mouthed freak. You’re just upset that Nintendo’s services are FAR cheaper then the Wimpstation 4’s!

      1. This is the reasson why the nintendo fans are always the WORST. IF some bring facts to the face on the fans then you people call them “sonyans” or “xbots” This is bullshit.
        Nintendrones are the worst cancer blind fanboys in the world on any direction..even worst than justin bieber fans

        1. Ok so I’m assuming you’re responding to my other post, and not this one. It seems you’ve made a few glaring errors.

          1) Saying “you people”. So far I’ve not yet taken one side or the other in this matter. I never said that I was happy with the online service, and I have not yet disagreed with anyone for being unhappy with it. Furthermore, I have never in my history on this site, nor in my life, called anyone a sonyan or an xbot. Look at the comments. There are Nintendo fans here that are unhappy with the service. By lumping all Nintendo fans into the same group, you’re showing a massive amount of ignorance. How can you possibly complain about people calling others sonyans and xbots, and then call all Nintendo fans Nintendrones?

          2) I’m not entirely sure what facts you are referring to in this matter. It seems to me that this online service is a subjective matter. Whether it is a good deal or not depends on the user, as is the case with all consumer services. I’m not sure there are any facts to be argued here.

          3) There are blind fanboys in every camp. It seems to me that the Nintendo ones may have been louder in recent years due to the hard times the company has faced, but I assure you that they are just as bad, if not worse, coming from Sony or Microsoft. I’d even wager that there are a lot more blind Playstation fanboys than Nintendo fanboys. Simple probability and the ratio of PS fans to Nintendo fans would suggest that. They’re just not as prevalent because PS is doing so well right now. Look back to the early days of the PS3 for some good examples.

          4) You spelled “reason” wrong.

          1. Once again all the ghetto from Nintendrones gathering on this spot to celebrate how cool and “contemporary” Nintendo is

            Tell me this Nintendrones:

            First) Why are you people believing Nintendo switch is doing good while all the sales are just from wii u thirsty owners?
            Second) Why switch got No games for the whole 2017? While ps4 got tons of great games on 2017? and even farther?
            Third) The only game switch got as Zelda ..port from wii u …and mario kart..port from wiiu …and now that game named arms…it is like a mini game for iphones..and splatoon 2…port from wii u with just the number “2” on it
            All the switch got is some mediacore shit games till now..
            fourth) I want to know what kind of magic forcing the Nintendrones to be so god damn blind fanboys…i mean ok you can like switch (nop) but blindly like that with all these errors? jesus crist.

            “sonyans” are well safe for been sonyans. because sony is loving them and respect the blind fans
            While Nintendo is tossing shit to each Nintendo fan and all nintendo fans accept the shit and they will buy a console with zero features not even a god damn VOICE CHAT only god dam games..while we have a god damn 2017..and that makes the nintendrones ..nintendrones…
            also thanos greek shit. shut up and bring me facts. and i bet i fucking met you on youtube comments too

            So Thanos or ridley or who ever shit nintendrone think he can reply tell me why switch is so bad with games for 2017? and supporting it? my guess? cause you are all just Nintendrone fanboys…

      2. Dont worry i make edit on huge text i made for sonyas mounths ago for situations like him because this sonyan is nott anything special i saw on youtube or ign much worse than him with much better facts and to support ninty there is far worse battle than here..this is easy here:P or maybe hard for him thats why he is here to take the challenge :P

      3. Allright. Title: The defeat of the sonyan

        Chapter 1)Switch vs ps4 2017 games

        First i will make something clear. i will be deadly serious. and that means you will be by far defeated.
        Also i have to warn you that im not the Quatraxis nintendrone. i will not speak with some general destruction for sonyans or using randomly the word “irrelevant”

        This is what i will do exacly. i will bring you some (not all) of the nintendo legendary miracles right in your head.

        First you said Ps4 is by far better on the first year while switch still have ports and shit mediacore games. My weapon of destruction is the site metacritic And switch just started with a game named zelda breath of the wild with 97/100
        and i will mention that again..FIRST DAY! while ps4 got first day what game exacly? Knack? do i need to bring you video with the frame problems on a game like “knack”? and you talk about the Biggest open world game for having fps problems?
        I haven’t even started yet. you want more facts? Also you compare wrong years. you dont say ps4 2017 and witch 2017. You compare only FIRST YEAR OF LAUNCH. and for ps4 is 2013 ( wowow i got you now from the balls)
        Let me ask you

        What was the best ps4 game for 2013? The answer is already there. it is the Assassins creed black flag (a great game ofc) But thats it? a multiplatform game is game of the year? to be even more deadly and humiliate the ps4 even more…
        the same Goty got the xbox one also.. for the first year these 2 consoles couldn’t bring a worthy exclusive to win.
        so for the whole year why someone should buy a ps4 or xbox1? while you had same games for ps3 or xbox360? even if you got a pc you got them. NOW lets see the switch…….When the awards for the 2017 will come in the near future you know
        what will happend? Switch got a HUGE LIST for Switch goty. Like Zelda, arms, splatoon 2,Mario odys, maybe even Fire emblem will be nominated. do you see how far the switch is? Before even the launch from the switch these games was there
        for be nomitated for Switch goty 2017
        yes we know maybe is gonna be zelda but are you gonna mention zelda is just a port and is not even gonna be goty for switch but for wii u ? I will remind you it is not “just a port” it got release the exacly same day with wii u and that means
        switch have the natural right to call that game “a switch game” and like black flag it when it got goty for ps4 and xbox1 same for zelda maybe will go goty for wii u-switch.
        Yes you can have all the nice facts about the third party support yes yes …yet ps4 is not something special for having them since you can play them on pc and xbox so drop this “ps4 badass”
        Btw ps4 is doing fine now with exclusives we are talking FIRST YEAR of the console launch sorry if i just destroy you already your next attack before you even try it :)

        Chapter 2) “Why nintendrones are Nintendrones. and what kind of magic forcing them to be blind”

        i will explain you why a nintendrone should feel proud to call him nintendrone.
        Nintendo is not just a random company is a legendary company that make games with unbelievable success and im not talking about the god damn sells. Sells are irrelevant no1 here is a member from nintendo company so drop that shit already and wake up
        you are a gamer not a Nintendo ninja member so you can care for sales. The only thing that matters is this “IS THE GAME GOOD”? yes it is. end of story

        I will bring you now in your head the 3 legendary miracles (my opinion) from nintendo that makes all nintendo fans to be like nintendrones

        Miracle 1st) In the gaming universe there are Big great 2 challenges

        First challenge is to create a game and been great. and thats it. you dont need to go the the second challenge as a gamer developer.
        And Nintendo done it. They create Mario First challenge is done. they made the GOD DAMN MARIO
        But this is not enough to make the fans go crazy and been nintendrones till now
        Nintendo make the first miracle. The DEFEAT the SECOND challenge. And what is the second challenge”?
        Is the challenge to bring a 2D game in the 3D WORLD and in the same time to be a Great game.
        The mario 64 got borned..thats it..Nintendo made the unthinkable to bring with the !!!!!FIRST SHOT!!!!! a 2D game in the 3D WORLD!!!
        And nintendo didn’t stay there

        Miracle 2) After that the second miracle happened They transfer Zelda also to the 3d WORLD and they made the Legendary game named “ocarina of time”

        miracle 3) No No No Nintendo didn’t end there they went CRAZY and they made also the third miracle. the Transfering on Samus aran to the 3d world…Metroid i need to mention it? do you see the pattern? There is no company that made the transfering on the 3d world so so great success.
        And after so many years they bring Breath of the wild to support even further the second mirracle..and now they will bring Mario oddys to support the first only Metroid left and i can die happy

        3 games from 2D the change a whole Dimension with unbelievable success and im no talking about sales im talking about for HOW GREAT WAS THAT TRANSFER.
        And this is why Nintendrones are Nintendrones because they dont need anything else they know Nintendo is legend they know when they transfered to the 3d world these games with a gaming legendary master piece art
        they feel safe. And thats it. The Nintendrones are feeling safe. This is why Nintendrones should be proud to call them like that.

        In the END !!!!!!!!!! you coming and mentioning errors to fans? HOLLY SHIT YOU ARE THE Biggest “DIVERSE” person alive ( sorry i google traslate that i dont know the word :P)
        We all thank you for your diverse that you give us. now go are defeted by facts. or i will just give you to quadraxis to ban you. thats hes job anyway he is not anything more. (i cant hide the hate for him:P)

        QUADRAXIS This is how you bring the hammer of justice on hes head read and learn how to support nintendo. First shot him with something like that then execute him with ban. But you are stupid enough to just skip the first step because you have nothing serious to say just “bans” and “sonyans” “xbots” irrelevant” 4 words i doupt you went so far to read this anyway :P

        (It is a copy paste Mine text that i made 2-3 mounths ago i just edit it little bit for this situation. and this fit almost to each sonyan just right for me )

        1. I was going to respond to your previous comment because it seemed like you actually did make an attempt to bring some arguments to the table, but it seems clear from this that you’re not interested in having a discussion. Apparently you just like to hear yourself talk. Also, I’m legitimately having a hard time reading and understanding anything you typed here; and, as I’m at work, I don’t have the time to.

          1. Well i cant hide it this is a text from thanos who throw it on me 1 week ago…and i just post it here so you can see how you should respond. also thanos i will not say how i will know you. in real yet

      4. HAHahAHahHa i knew it. didn’t i beat your shit ass with this text 1 week ago? on IGN or gamespot? i dont remember. and you didn’t believe you will face me again here right? To be clear this is MY copy paste chat that i put in your head 1-2 weeks ago. and you copy paste it to proove what? to support The only thing the nintendo fans as fact is to call the other sonyans and they dont have a nice argument?
        How was your name on ign-gamespot Veggeta7 something? or supervegetta? i fucking remember you since the fucking wii when you was started to trolling and i was watching and ignoring and REPORTING your comments but i stayed silent all the time also you are greek right? and you said you know me also. i wonder how..i dont go in gay bars…. will search to find the text on ign or youtube or gamespot where ever you was. Mine text that i copy pasted to you back then and then you copy pasted much copy paste that text..

      5. also answer how do you know me in real life and also why the fuck i reply on ridleyslayer all the time and i cant reply properly ?:P sorry ridley for the notification spam :P

          1. This guy is a hater from Nintendo and transfering him self on almost all the sites and he is doing this many years. Hes name on Ign or gamespot is Veggeta7 or something with like “vegeta” and he said exacly the same things there and i put him the exacly same text to him. the text he just put it is a a copy text from ME. and he did some small edit also

  6. Actually wrong…Well done to the fans who can tolerate this bullshit…well done to nintendo fans..i hope the switch will die like WIi u and then Nintendo can learn or be destroyed!

    1. ….Uhm? Shouldn’t ypu be somewhere enjoying your PS4 WITH ALL IT’S GREAT TITLES & Extremely Overpriced Add On PLAYSTATION VR?

      The fact you’re giving time to dump on NINTENDO is “mind boggling”. Lmao

      1. Its probably the same troll that’s been on this site for years. Probably gamingfan20XX having to change his name because of how hard he’s been owned countless times on here.

      2. Anyone hearing this wind? I hear wind saying: “I’m an idiot cause I hate Nintendo and want it to just die!” No? Huh, guess it was wind.

      3. Virtual Reality is dead, TrollStation Whore. Why don’t you troll someplace else like NeoGAF, IGN or in Hell?

    2. Oh my friend, ha ha, you trolling IDIOTS don’t know when to quit, do you? Your precious PS4 is gonna lose! FACE IT! The Switch is winning, Wimpstation 4 is losing, YOUR FAVORITE CONSOLE WILL DIE AND I’LL BE THERE WITH A CAMERA TO SEE IT’S FUNERAL!

      1. It seems i fall in a Nintendrone’s ghetto living in their own delusional reality when nintendo is something worthy.

        You people trying to bring shit about my name? this is how bad you all are…butthurt by sony so hard because sony throw your shit most usless console ever made named wii u to the garbage. and people still defended this GARBAGE this is why the Nintendo fans are the WORST.

    3. In all seriousness, whether you’re joking or not, I take issue with you calling Nintendo fans the worst, while trolling on a Nintendo site. I never hear about Nintendo fans going on other websites to bash MS or Sony. Maybe it happens, but I’m not aware of it. On the other hand, I constantly see MS and Sony fans taking time to troll Nintendo, and I see more general, all-around bashing come out of those two groups. Sony is on the top of the world right now. There’s no one even remotely close to their success in the home market, yet I still see PS fans taking time to bash everyone else. Why come on this site to bash a company you don’t care about? In my opinion, a mindless, delusional drone simply defending the company they love is far more appealing than a sore winner.

      1. ||I was created exactly because of these vermin, to combat the growing threat against Nintendo during the late period of the Wii…||

      2. Don’t take issue with it, he’s just a troll, and a terrible one at that. These trolls would be far more effective if they had a better grasp of the English language that they are trying to speak in. lololololol

      1. Not much really. Just a little poke for the delay of the paid online. Personally it doesn’t affect me, just messing around. Don’t worry. I’m not going Thanos or PlayStation.

  7. Glad they allow the bonus games to be keep permanently instead of only for a month (which Kotaku addressed).

    That’s one thing I’ve liked about PlayStation Plus.

    1. I have a feeling it won’t work exactly like that. I think it’s going to be more like Netflix where there will be a steady stream of monthly rotating content. It will keep things more fresh and will make the online user base more consistent. Just my guess though, it’s not like I have an uncle that works at Nintendo or anything.

            1. lol wat? Was that supposed to be an insult? Personally, I don’t even like using voice chat so that bullshit doesn’t effect me. But I’m totally willing to pay $1.67 a month to play Mario Kart and Splatoon online, not to mention the ongoing access to the retro games with newly implemented online functionality sounds pretty dope. 😁

    2. $20 yearly is a pretty good price honestly. Unless you’re paid pennies. …You’d probably still be able to buy it even if you were paid in pennies.

    3. ||They are not permanent, they are gone once you cancel your subscription, ergo you are still only borrowing them…||

  8. 20$ a year or 4$ a month. godamn worth it and on top of this we get it free until 2018. how to do paid online right

    1. It’s pretty redundant. Download an app on your phone. Pay for the app so you can talk through the app on your phone. Oooor, use one of a dozen great free apps and just chat that way.

      1. Yeah but you’re also paying to play the games online and you’re getting access to the classic games to play online with people every month. Personally, I’m not a fan of voice chat and will probably rarely use it. The app feature that can schedule play sessions might be kind of cool though. If it was $20 a year for voice chat only and it was actually on the console itself I still wouldn’t bother with it, I’m more interested in all the other features.

        1. Nintendo needs to prove that the app and service is worth it first, kind of like what PlayStation did. They waited a whole generation after their online service launched before charging.

          At least I think they understand this a little bit now that they’re delaying the service to 2018.

      2. I get your concern, but none of us had used it yet. It could be more convenient than using skype or any chat app. And I’m not sure if the actual app will cost money, I think it’s more like hulu or Netflix; download it and it’s free, but you have to buy a subscription to Nintendos online service. But idk. That part is still unclear.

        1. What could be more convenient is actually not needing a separate device and app to do what has been standardized the past decade.

          The app will be part of the service and you’ll need to pay to use those functions on the app.

          1. What I’m saying is that you never know. This actually could be more convenient to you. Nowadays everyone’s carries around a smart phone or smart device. Are you not commenting to me through your smart phone?

            & trust me, I’d rather have it the way you want. But this seems to be one of the compromises that comes with having a hybrid console, and let’s be real; the hybrid nature of the console is truly something special.

            & my point with that last part is that I don’t think the app itself will cost money. Pay the $20 for a year of online (which is a very fair price that you can’t yet complain about) and get the features of the app. I don’t see an issue with this either.

            1. No. I was replying to you through my laptop, actually.

              This has nothing to do with the system being a hybrid.

              But as I said in other comments, hopefully Nintendo learns and makes changes over time.

                    1. I’m not dancing around anything. Your point was that we always use our smartphones and devices because we always have them around. You assumed I was replying to you on a smart phone. I was not.

                      If I’m using my Switch, it will not be convenient to use another device to have a so-called complete experience. It should be built in to the system software. There’s no way it could be more convenient having to use a separate app over everything being on the Switch. None at all.

  9. I bet you 20 bucks that people will instantly stop complaining about the mic thing (for now) and start praising the nintendo switch again like the fickle things they are. it just takes one bad press to make them change their minds again.~

        1. What’s strawman about it? You say the fans are fickle, hating everything but then accepting it later on, but they’re not. The mic problem is a legitimate issue that needs to be addressed and handled better.

      1. Here’s the difference bub. First off, I never complained about amiibo festival because i didn’t care about it. And Metroid fans (including myself) are still pissed over that game and will be till the series finally gets some love again and we get a good game for it. Try again.

        1. I feel like we’re trying to argue about the same points here. Ah well, I’m hoping we get a nice Metroid game for this E3 too. I’m also crossing my fingers for a new mainline Pokemon game annuncement, even asked the day off to watch the livestream.

  10. I’m actually pretty excited about the online play for old games, this will be the first time I’ll get Balloon Fight in years just for that feature. I hope they announce gamebcube vc soon though.

  11. $20 yearly is a pretty good price honestly. Unless you’re paid pennies. …You’d probably still be able to buy it even if you were paid in pennies.

  12. Everyone’s talking about how low the price is. Yes. $20 a year is nothing but what do you get for $20 a year? The free games are okay but that’s the only incentive I see. The app and voice chat is ridiculous.

  13. $20 bucks a year? I’m in, that seems like a sweet spot for pricing. But I wonder why they pushed back the start date, not that I’m complaining… Maybe there will be more to it?

    …What if the Switch rewards on My Nintendo (once they finally show up) include using gold coins to pay for yearly subscriptions? That sounds like fine use of them if you ask me.

    1. I doubt the gold coin thing will happen and I kind of hope it doesn’t. I’d rather them use our subscription payments to continue to improve upon the online and make sure it always runs smooth. I’d love for once in my life to play smash online completely lag free lol

  14. ||Everything depends on the servers themselves, anything else is just extra…||

  15. People who are complaining right now have taken online play on the wii U for granted, Nintendo is making the right decisions to better the system at a very low price. 20 dollars is nothing, and I like how I can have a smartphone app linked to my switch, easy ways to play is always great. I don’t use voicechat so it doesn’t bother me

  16. The damage control is strong in this article.
    If this was all they were offering for online no wonder they weren’t ready, pitiful really. They better try to at least match the competition.

  17. I hope this doesn’t also mean a delay for the launch of the Virtual Console. It would so easily make the Switch such an amazing portable overnight.

  18. I’m fine with the delay. More time to use the Switch online multiplayer for free. I can live without the extra features

  19. King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits. This use to be something that awaited those for all consoles. It's sad it's mostly just a PS4 slogan these days. Maybe Nintendo will get back to that greatness with the Switch. Only time will tell.} says:

    From what I’ve heard of the online, I’m glad they are delaying it & I hope they use the delay to make it better. As it stands right now, I’ll just not bother paying 20 bucks for online & just forsake all multiplayer games on Switch along with 3rd party multiplats til they make it more on par with PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live. Cloud storage & a universal account system better be a thing, though! If my Switch craps out & all of my shit is lost again because it’s fucking locked to the damn console, I’m not doing Nintendo ever again til they grow a damn brain. Going all in with PlayStation won’t be so bad since I got a huge backlog on my PS4 already & it’s only growing as more interesting games come out in the next year or so for PS4. I wish I could have said the same for Wii & Wii U but I never had to worry about falling behind in the games I want to play. I should have forsaken the Wii U back in it’s first year & got a PS4 as soon as it released so I could have avoided this backlog. *shrug* Oh well.
