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. Nintendo confirmed on Twitter that the service will officially launch next week, on September 18, and that more information will be revealed during Thursday's presentation.

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

At the moment, all we really know for sure is that Nintendo Switch Online will enable subscribers, for about $20 a year, to play their games online; something we can already do for free.

Water kills more people in hurricanes than wind, and he said it will still be an extremely risky storm for rain and storm surge . In South Carolina, traffic along parts of Interstate 26 and United States 501 has been directed away from the coast.

The service also unlocks access to a library of NES games, including Super Mario Bros.

"Depending on the game, players can engage in online competitive or co-op multiplayer, or take turns controlling the action", Nintendo said earlier this year. Family subscriptions are also available for $54.95, which supports up to eight accounts under the one Family Group.

Nintendo, which delayed taking the wraps off the service (and a host of other Switch goodies) after postponing last week's Nintendo Direct event in the wake of a September 9 quake, will likely explore the new service's features in greater detail at the rescheduled event, which kicks off Thursday at 6 p.m. ET.
