Nintendo Direct set for 9/13, will include Switch Online details

In case you've forgotten, the service will work basically like the Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus: You'll pay to play certain games online, get access to cloud saves, and basically anything else that requires connection. You can sign-up for a 7-day free trial from Nintendo #eShop at launch!

Ninty has provided more details on the whole account linking and unlinking here and here, so give it a read if you're a bit lost. Ultimate, some more info about that new Yoshi game, and if you're feeling really lucky, an Animal Crossing Switch announcement. Not all games will support this feature, but it's a relief to see Nintendo add a feature that should have been ready at launch.

Will you be signing up for Switch Online once it debuts on September 18th?

Nintendo also took the opportunity to announce that the Switch Online service will begin in North America on Tuesday, September 18.

Hurricane Florence hours away from Carolinas
The hurricane center said Florence would approach the coast on Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore. A few days later they returned, by boat, to find their home inundated with water - a total loss.


"Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time". We say standard, but that isn't quite the right word to describe it. Not only is the feature not guaranteed to be compatible for all games, it must also be done via the Nintendo Switch Online app.

Alongside the release of the online service will come with NES-themed Joy-Cons. Some existing titles such as Splatoon 2 have received significant updates, too.

Some residents enjoyed a few final hours of normalcy by ambling along the city's riverwalk with dogs and children. The four storms in the Atlantic come as another one in the Pacific is hitting Hawaii.
