Nintendo recently announced that their online service for Nintendo Switch will be out in September. The service has been long awaited, but with so little information, fans were wondering what was taking so long. It seems that Nintendo is actually putting a bit more effort into the service beyond just providing multiplayer game services.
During a recent Q&A session that followed Nintendo’s latest financial report, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima answered various questions about the Nintendo Switch. One such question was about the online service, stating that the company will apply a substantial amount of resources towards it. Managing Executive Officer Shinya Takahashi added that the next announcement on the service will be worth the wait.
As stated in the September announcement, Kimishima explained what the service will do for gaming on the Nintendo Switch.
“Next let’s talk about Nintendo Switch Online, the paid subscription service that expands the online functionality of the Nintendo Switch. We reported previously that the service would launch in 2018, and now the official start time has been set to September 2018. Work is progressing on ways to further heighten the gaming experience for consumers. Details will be made available as they are finalized.”
