Hey guys, Nintendo posted an update based on the Switch in the “whats new” section of the Nintendo site. Most of it is known information but Nintendo slipped in a bit of news it seems.

At the end of the post it says:

“*Nintendo Account required. Online services and features. including online gameplay, are free until the paid Nintendo Switch Online Service launches in 2019.”


What do you think about this delay? Let me know in the comments or on my Twitter!

Nintendo has told GameXplain that this was a typo and corrected it, and the year is back to 2018!

  • Was excited to have another year of free online services, but since I was planning on paying for it in 2018 anyway, I’m only just slightly disappointed. I hope they’re not going to charge too much AND that they’re going to offer perks to make it worth while.
