Nintendo Switch Online Membership Details and Pricing Revealed

Will you be picking up theses games when they are released on the Nintendo Switch?

The site also revealed that Nintendo plans to roll out the Voice Chat app over the summer and can be downloaded and experienced for free.

This paid service, that once active, will have Switch owners needing to pay a monthly fee to enjoy online gaming on the console was slated to arrive later this year. A 1-month membership will cost $3.99 while a 3-month members will be $7.99.

Virtual Console isn't mentioned by name, but subscribers will get access to classic titles with added online functionality.

Also included in that fee are monthly classic games from Nintendo's back catalog, updated with multiplayer support and playable on the new console.

You'll be able to play compatible co-op and competitive games online by signing in with your Nintendo Account. But what if you want to use a pair of wired headphones and listen to your game's audio as well as voice chat?

Splatoon 2's official headset adapter is inexplicably convoluted, providing further indication that despite the Switch's many successes following its launch, Nintendo still doesn't understand online multiplayer. However, if both players have the same handicap, meaning both players are using motion controls, then I do believe the game can be fair, and probably more fun, since punching and seeing that immediately on your screen is not only rewarding but satisfying as well. Despite speculating this clash with the world's biggest smartphone maker being clear to Nintendo, reports say that they are at a better position to bid for the component which the Switch requires as smartphone markers are likely to make a much larger order than Nintendo itself. However, a Splatoon 2 headset announcement by accessory manufacturer Hori does confirm that at least online chat will be supported.

For the time being, it seems that the headset is only releasing in Japan, scheduled for release on 21st July alongside the game. The parts in question include NAND flash-memory chips for data storage, liquid-crystal displays, and motors that are integral to the Switch's "HD Rumble" feature, are all in-demand from Nintendo, Apple, and various other device firms in China.

If you prefer to subscribe to Switch Online Service in smaller chunks, you can purchase $4 monthly blocks, or three months for $8.

More details on switch Online Services are available on Nintendo's website.
