Nintendo had previously revealed that the Nintendo Switch would eventually require an online subscription similar to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live in order to play games online. There are options for both individual and family memberships (up to 8 users).

Nintendo Switch Online will remain free to non-scubscribers up until the paid service launches and a deeper dive into the service will happen during the upcoming Nintendo Direct on September 13, 2018.
