Emmett Howard | 13 September, 2018, 03:41

That's literally all there is to know right now, with Nintendo confirming more details will be released tomorrow during the rescheduled Direct event.

Nintendo UK's tweet also mentioned that there will be a seven-day free trial to begin with.

Nintendo Switch Online will also give subscribers the ability to back up their save data in the cloud.

Nintendo has just announced via social media that the Direct will indeed air tomorrow, September 13th.

Warner Announces Intention to Vote Against Kavanaugh
Along with Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, Senator Collins' vote could change the outcome of this critical legislation. And Kavanaugh, given the slight majority Republicans presently hold in the Senate, will most likely be confirmed.

We still aren't going to be getting a Virtual Console, though the company will be adding 20 NES games to the console, along with the option to play them in co-op.

That said, it's not all rosy: One of the biggest disappointments about the proposed online play of the Switch was that the only way to get voice chat going was apparently via the dubious Switch Online app. For those of you who don't have a calendar handy, that's next Tuesday, so we're less than a week out from Switch Online's official launch.

Stay plugged in to Nintendo Wire for more Nintendo Switch Online news as it breaks!

It'll be free for the first week but after that it'll cost £3.49 a month, £6.99 for three months, or £17.99 for a year.
